Crown Capital Partners Announces Renewal of Normal Course Issuer Bid

Canada NewsWire

CALGARY, April 5, 2017 /CNW/ - Crown Capital Partners Inc. ("Crown" or the "Corporation") (TSX: CRWN), which provides growth capital to successful mid-market companies, today announced that it has received approval from the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") to implement a normal course issuer bid ("NCIB") for a 12-month period commencing April 10, 2018.

This NCIB will follow the current NCIB, which ends on April 9, 2018 and under which Crown purchased 80,074 shares at a volume-weighted average price per share of $9.68 up to March 31, 2018.

Under the terms of the NCIB, Crown will have the right to purchase up to 300,000 of its common shares (the "Shares") representing approximately 5.5% of the public float of Shares and approximately 3.2% of the 9,484,167 issued and outstanding Shares. The number of Shares that can be purchased pursuant to the NCIB is subject to a daily maximum of 3,261 Shares, which is 25% of 13,044 (being the average daily trading volume for the Shares on the TSX for the six months ended March 31, 2018). Shares purchased by the Corporation pursuant to the NCIB will be cancelled. Purchases made pursuant to the NCIB will be made in the open market through the facilities of the TSX and alternative trading systems, if eligible. The NCIB will commence on April 10, 2018 and remain in effect until the earlier of April 9, 2019, the termination of the NCIB by Crown, and Crown purchasing the maximum number of Shares permitted under the NCIB.

Crown is commencing this NCIB because, in the opinion of the Corporation's board of directors and senior management, the Shares continue to trade in a price range that does not adequately reflect the value of the underlying business. At December 31, 2017, Crown's total equity per basic common share was $10.98.
