VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Conifex Timber Inc. (“Conifex”, “we” or “us”) (TSX: CFF) announced today the final results of its substantial issuer bid (“SIB“), pursuant to which Conifex offered to purchase for cancellation up to 4.0 million of its common shares (the “Shares“) at a price of $2.25 (the “Purchase Price“) for a total of $9.0 million, which expired at 5:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on December 20, 2021.
In accordance with the terms and conditions of the SIB and based on the final calculations of Computershare Investor Services Inc. (“Computershare“), as depositary for the SIB, Conifex will take up and pay for 4.0 million Shares at the Purchase Price, representing an aggregate purchase price of $9.0 million. After giving effect to the SIB, 40,149,111 Shares will remain outstanding.
Based on the final count by Computershare, a total of 24,511,992 Shares were properly tendered to the SIB and not withdrawn. As the SIB was oversubscribed, shareholders who deposited Shares pursuant to the SIB had approximately 16.22% of their successfully tendered Shares purchased by Conifex, except for “odd lot” tenders (of holders beneficially owning fewer than 100 Shares) which were not subject to pro ration.
Conifex will promptly make payment for the Shares tendered and accepted for purchase by tendering the aggregate purchase price to Computershare in accordance with the SIB and applicable laws and payment to the shareholders will be effected by Computershare. Payment for Shares will be made in cash, without interest. Any Shares invalidly tendered or tendered and not purchased will be returned to the tendering shareholder promptly by Computershare.
