Brampton Brick Limited Announces Normal Course Issuer Bid

BRAMPTON, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 04/30/14 -- Brampton Brick Limited ("BBL" or the "Company") (TSX:BBL.A) announced today that the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "Exchange") has accepted a notice filed by BBL of its intention to make a Normal Course Issuer Bid (the "Bid").

The notice provides that BBL may, during the 12 month period commencing May 6, 2014 and ending May 5, 2015, purchase on the Exchange up to 460,086 Class A Subordinate Voting shares in total, being approximately 5% of the total number of Class A Subordinate Voting shares outstanding. The price which BBL will pay for any such shares will be the market price at the time of acquisition. The actual number of Class A Subordinate Voting shares which may be purchased pursuant to the Bid and the timing of any such purchases will be determined by management of BBL. As at April 21, 2014 there were 9,201,723 Class A Subordinate Voting shares and 1,738,631 Class B Multiple Voting shares outstanding. The average daily trading volume of Class A Subordinate Voting shares ("ADTV") for the most recently completed six calendar months is 975. The maximum number of Class A Subordinate Voting shares that may be purchased in one day pursuant to the Bid will be the greater of 1,000 and 25% of ADTV. All Class A Subordinate Voting share purchases will be made on the open market through the facilities of the Exchange and will be purchased for cancellation.

BBL believes that its Class A Subordinate Voting shares have been trading in a price range which does not adequately reflect the value of such shares in relation to the business of BBL and its future business prospects. As a result, depending upon future price movements and other factors, BBL believes that its outstanding Class A Subordinate Voting shares may represent an attractive investment to BBL. Furthermore, the purchases are expected to benefit all persons who continue to hold Class A Subordinate Voting shares by increasing their equity interest in BBL.
