Computer Modelling Group Receives Acceptance for Normal Course Issuer Bid

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/05/14 -- Computer Modelling Group Ltd. ("CMG" or the "Company") (TSX:CMG) today announced that the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") has accepted CMG's Notice of Intention to make a Normal Course Issuer Bid (the "Bid") through the facilities of the TSX. The Bid will permit the Company to purchase for cancellation up to 3,719,659 Common Shares of the Company, representing approximately 10% of CMG's public float, which was 37,196,594 at April 25, 2014. As at April 25, 2014 CMG's issued and outstanding shares were 39,267,557 Common Shares.

Purchases pursuant to the Bid may commence on May 5, 2014 and will terminate on May 4, 2015 or such earlier time as the Bid is completed or terminated at the option of CMG. The price which CMG will pay for any shares purchased will be the prevailing market price of the Common Shares on the TSX at the time of such purchase. The actual number of shares that may be purchased for cancellation and the timing of any such purchases will be at the discretion of CMG, subject to a maximum daily purchase limit of 9,078 shares, which equals 25% of CMG's average daily trading volume for the six months prior to April 25, 2014, other than block purchase exceptions. The average daily trading volume for such period was 36,313.

CMG believes that, from time to time, the market prices of its Common Shares may not fully reflect the underlying value of its assets and business and that, at such times, the purchase of shares would be in the best interests of CMG. Such purchases will increase the proportionate interest of, and may be advantageous to, all remaining shareholders. In addition, the purchase of shares by the Company may increase liquidity of the Common Shares.

CMG has not repurchased any Common Shares under its most recent normal course issuer bid which commenced on May 1, 2013 and expired on April 30, 2014.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
