CALGARY, ALBERTA–(Marketwired – Oct. 28, 2014) – Quattro Exploration and Production Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:QXP) (“Quattro” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that it has filed a Form 5G with the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV“) and received conditional approval to purchase up to 2,437,694 common shares, being approximately 10% of the Company’s Public Float, by way of a normal course issuer bid (the “Bid“) through the facilities of the TSXV. As of the date hereof, there are 35,338,778 Common Shares of the Company issued and outstanding. The Bid will commence on October 28, 2014 and will stay open for 12 months.
The Company is engaging in a normal course issuer bid because it believes that the market price of its Common Shares does not properly reflect the underlying value of the Company.
“Quattro’s ongoing operations continue to provide a foundation for growth that is outpacing the current market value of its Common Shares”, said Leonard B. Van Betuw, President and CEO. “This fact, in combination with its successful recently completed exploratory well in Saskatchewan and pending development drilling program in Alberta, continue to support the increasing potential for material growth at Quattro for an extended period of time, a strong reason for the Corporation to establish a program for buying back Common Shares in the public market.”
The purpose of the bid is to reduce dilution of the Company’s shares and to enhance the potential future value of the Common Shares which remain outstanding, thus increasing long term shareholder value. Purchases connected with this Bid will be conducted through the offices of Jordan Capital Markets in Calgary. The Company will pay the market price of the Common Shares at the time of acquisition and will not purchase more than 2% of the total issued and outstanding common shares within any 30 day period.
A copy of the Notice may be obtained by any shareholder of the Company, without charge, by contacting the Company’s head office.
