Founders Advantage Capital Corp. Comments on Recent Trading; Announces Intention to Implement Normal Course Issuer Bid and Dividend Reinvestment Plan

CALGARY, Alberta, June 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In light of the recent share price decline, Founders Advantage Capital Corp. (TSX-V:FCF) (the “Corporation”) would like to confirm that there have been no material adverse changes at any of its four investee companies nor at its corporate head office.  As the Corporation’s management does not believe the current trading price of the Corporation’s shares properly reflects the inherent value of the Corporation’s investments, the Corporation intends to implement a normal course issuer bid (“NCIB”) to acquire shares for the benefit of all shareholders.  Further, the Corporation also intends on implementing a dividend reinvestment plan (“DRIP”) to make it easier for existing shareholders to reinvest their quarterly dividends in the Corporation’s shares. 

As the market is currently valuing the Corporation significantly below the value of the capital deployed, and given the performance of the Corporation’s investments, the Corporation believes that implementing an NCIB is in the best interest of all shareholders.  Stephen Reid, President and CEO commented: “We’ve made four strong investments for aggregate consideration of $145.6 million.  Net of corporate debt, the Corporation has deployed in excess of $94.5 million in equity or approximately $2.48 per share, without any consideration for portfolio growth or our transaction pipeline.  At these prices, acquiring our own shares is an easy investment decision.”

Prior to trading in the Corporation’s shares, investors are encouraged to review the Corporation’s interim and annual financial statements and associated management’s discussion and analysis to understand the Corporation’s financial position.

The NCIB remains subject to approval by the TSX Venture Exchange and the Corporation’s lender.  Further details regarding the NCIB and the DRIP will be made available in subsequent news releases.
