Base Carbon Announces Normal Course Issuer Bid Through the NEO Exchange

TORONTO, June 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Base Carbon Inc. (NEO: BCBN) (“Base Carbon“, or the “Company“) announces its intention to implement a Normal Course Issuer Bid (the “NCIB“) program to repurchase common shares of the Company (“Common Shares”).

Pursuant to the NCIB, which has been accepted by the Neo Exchange Inc. (the “NEO”), Base Carbon may purchase, from time to time, over a period of 12 months starting June 17, 2022, and ending June 16, 2023, up to 8,716,601 Common Shares representing approximately 6% of the total 127,663,680 issued and outstanding Common Shares and 10% of the Company’s public float. On any given day during the NCIB, Base Carbon may only purchase up to 105,626 Common Shares, which is equivalent to 25% of the average daily trading volume of 422,507 calculated based on the trading volumes since March 3, 2022 which was the first day on which the Common Shares traded on the NEO. Block trades for a greater number of Common Shares may be made once per calendar week.

Purchases under the NCIB may commence as of June 17, 2022 and will end on the earlier of: (i) June 16, 2023; or (ii) the date on which Base Carbon has purchased the maximum number of Common Shares which may be acquired under the NCIB. The purchases made will be done in accordance with the rules of the NEO, through the facilities of the NEO or through alternative trading systems. The actual number of Common Shares which will be purchased, and the timing and price of such purchases will be determined by the Company in accordance with the NEO Listing Manual and guidelines. Common Shares purchased under the NCIB will be returned to treasury for cancellation. The Company has not purchased any Common Shares during the previous year pursuant to any issuer bid.

The Board of Directors of the Company believes that the market price of the Common Shares may from time to time not reflect the underlying value of Base Carbon, including its growth opportunities, and that the proposed purchasing of its Common Shares is in the best interests of the Company and represents an appropriate use of corporate funds.
