(Toronto: February 15, 2019) Quantum International Income Corp. ("Quantum" or the "Corporation") (TSXV:QIC) is pleased to announce that the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") has accepted the Corporation's notice to implement a normal course issuer bid ("NCIB") to purchase, for cancellation, up to 5,587,431 of its common shares (the "Shares"), representing approximately 10% of the Corporation's "public float".
The Corporation has received approval from the Exchange to commence the NCIB on February 19, 2019 and continue to February 18, 2020, or earlier in the event that the Corporation has acquired the maximum number of Shares that may be purchased under the NCIB. The Corporation may also terminate the NCIB earlier if it feels it is appropriate to so.
The NCIB will be made through the facilities of the Exchange and the purchase and payment for the Shares will be made in accordance with the Exchange requirements at the market price of the Shares at the time of acquisition. All Shares purchased by the Corporation under the NCIB will be cancelled.
The Company has engaged Cormark Securities Inc. to act as its agent to conduct the NCIB transactions.
Management of the Corporation believes that the Shares have been trading in a price range which does not adequately reflect their value and that the purchase of the Shares under the NCIB is in the best interests of the Company, a desirable use of its available cash, and will enhance shareholder value in general.
To the knowledge of the Corporation, no director, senior officer or other inside of the Corporation currently intends to sell any shares under the NCIB.
