DEFI TECHNOLOGIES ANNOUNCES EXTENSION OF NORMAL COURSE ISSUER BID USA – English – USA – English – Canada NewsWire


, /CNW/ – DeFi Technologies Inc. (the “Company” or “DeFi“) (NEO: DEFI) (GR: RMJR) (OTC: DEFTF), a technology company bridging the gap between traditional capital markets and decentralized finance, announces its intention to extend its Normal Course Issuer Bid (“NCIB“) to buy back common shares of the Company (the “Common Shares“) through the facilities of Neo Exchange Inc. (the “Exchange“) and/or other Canadian alternative trading platform.  The NCIB was originally launched on April 13, 2021 and was set to expire on April 8, 2022. The actual number of Common Shares that may be purchased under the NCIB and the exact timing of such purchases will be determined by the Company.

The Company is undertaking the NCIB because its management believes that, currently, and from time to time, the market price of its Common Shares may not reflect the underlying value of the Company’s business and prospects. Management believes that, at such times, the purchase of Common Shares for cancellation would be in the best interests of the Company’s shareholders and an appropriate use of its cash on hand.

The NCIB has been approved by the Company’s board of directors and accepted by the Exchange and will be executed in accordance with the applicable rules and policies of the Exchange and any applicable Canadian securities laws. The NCIB be extended until April 7, 2023 or to such earlier date as the NCIB is complete.

Under the terms of the NCIB, the Company may, if considered advisable, purchase its Common Shares in open market transactions through the facilities of the Exchange and/or other Canadian alternative trading platforms not to exceed up to 10% of the public float for the Common Shares as of April 8, 2022, or 20,359,513 Common Shares, purchased in aggregate. The price that the Company will pay for the Common Shares shall be the prevailing market price at the time of purchase and all purchased Common Shares will be cancelled by the Company. In accordance with Exchange rules, daily purchases (other than pursuant to a block purchase exception) on the Exchange under the NCIB cannot exceed 25% of the average daily trading volume on the Exchange as measured from November 8, 2021 to April 8, 2022.

The Company has appointed PI Financial Corp. to coordinate and facilitate purchases under the NCIB.

The Company purchased 7,078,200 shares from April 8 to Dec 31, 2021 and 4,205,900 from January 1, 2022 to March 31, 2022.
