Eat Well Investment Group Inc. (CSE: EWG) (US: EWGFF) (FSE: 6BC0) (“Eat Well” or the “Company”) announces its intention to proceed with a normal course issuer bid (“NCIB”) for up to 7,686,777 common shares in the capital of the Company (the “Shares”), representing five percent of total Shares issued and outstanding. As at June 21, 2022, the Company had 153,735,547 Shares issued and outstanding.
All Shares purchased under the NCIB are being purchased on the open market through the facilities of the Canadian Securities Exchange (the “CSE”) as well as through other designated exchanges and alternative trading systems in Canada in accordance with applicable regulatory requirements. All Shares purchased will be at the prevailing market price at the time of purchase and will be subsequently cancelled. The NCIB will be conducted through Pacific International Securities in accordance with the policies of the CSE.
The NCIB will commence on June 27, 2022 and end no later than June 26, 2023. The Company may terminate the NCIB earlier if it feels it is appropriate to do so. Although Eat Well intends to purchase Shares under its NCIB, there can be no assurance that any such purchases will be completed.
The Company believes that the purchase of the Shares will increase the proportionate interest of, and be advantageous to, all remaining security holders. The normal course purchases will also afford an increased degree of liquidity in the market. The Company believes that the purchase of the Shares would be in the best interest of the Company’s shareholders.
