GuestLogix, Inc., the leading transaction processor of ancillary revenues and the provider of onboard store technology to airlines and the passenger travel industry, today announced that it has received approval from the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX”) to launch a Normal Course Issuer Bid (“NCIB”).
GuestLogix will repurchase up to 3,846, 805 of its common shares, representing approximately 10% of the Company’s public float, subject to a maximum purchase of $2.0 million during the 12-month period (the “Bid Period”) commencing August 9, 2011 and expiring August 8, 2012. The timing and exact number of common shares the Company will purchase will be at GuestLogix’ discretion, will depend on market conditions and the Company may suspend or discontinue the NCIB at any time. As of August 5, 2011, GuestLogix had 64,872, 391 common shares issued and outstanding with a public float of 38,468, 045 common shares.
The Company’s common shares have been trading in a price range that may not adequately reflect their value in relation to the Company’s business and future business prospects. As a result, the purchase of the Company’s common shares under the bid is appropriate and in the best interest of the Company and its stakeholders.
Purchases under the NCIB will be made at the prevailing market price through the facilities of the TSX, and payment for the common shares will be in accordance with TSX policies. The maximum number of common shares that GuestLogix may purchase on a daily basis is 16,312, representing 25% of the Company’s average daily trading volume (65,248 common shares) over the last six complete calendar months. No purchases will be made other than by means of open market transactions during the Bid Period except where purchases are made in accordance with “block purchases” exemptions under applicable TSX policies. All common shares repurchased by the Company during the Bid Period will be cancelled.
To GuestLogix’ knowledge, no director, senior officer, their associates, or persons acting jointly or in concert with the Company intends to sell common shares during the Bid Period. Should that change, the Company will suspend purchases under the NCIB until such person’s sales are completed.
GuestLogix has not previously purchased any common shares pursuant to any issuer bid.
