Under the NCIB, InPlay may purchase for cancellation, from time to time, as InPlay considers advisable, up to a maximum of 6,637,064 Common Shares, which represents 10% of the Company’s public float of 66,370,643 Common Shares as at October 31, 2023. As of the same date, InPlay had 90,925,401 Common Shares issued and outstanding. Purchases of Common Shares may be made on the open market through the facilities of the TSX and through other alternative Canadian trading platforms at the prevailing market price at the time of such transaction. The actual number of Common Shares that may be purchased for cancellation and the timing of any such purchases will be determined by InPlay, subject to a maximum daily purchase limitation of 43,809 Common Shares which equates to 25% of InPlay’s average daily trading volume of 175,239 Common Shares for the six months ended October 31, 2023. InPlay may make one block purchase per calendar week which exceeds the daily repurchase restrictions. Any Common Shares that are purchased by InPlay under the NCIB will be cancelled.
The NCIB will commence on November 14, 2023 and will terminate on November 13, 2024 or such earlier time as the NCIB is completed or terminated at the option of InPlay.
InPlay believes that renewing the NCIB is a prudent step in this volatile energy market environment, when at times, the prevailing market price does not reflect the underlying value of its Common Shares. The timely repurchase of the Company’s Common Shares for cancellation represents confidence in the long term prospects and sustainability of its business model. This reduction in share count adds per share value to InPlay’s shareholders and adds another tool to management’s disciplined capital allocation strategy.
With the base dividend of $0.015/share per month, NCIB share repurchases and the Company’s continued efforts towards towards overall production per share growth, InPlay will be able to continue with its strategy of providing strong returns to shareholders.
