Synex Renewable Energy Announces Normal Course Issuer Bid

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - May 17, 2022) - Synex Renewable Energy Corporation (TSX: SXI) (Formerly, Synex International Inc.) (the "Company" or "Synex") is pleased to announce that the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") has accepted a notice filed by Synex of its intention to make a normal course issuer bid ("NCIB").

The TSX notice provides that Synex may, during the 12-month period commencing May 19, 2022 and terminating May 18, 2023, purchase up to 200,575 of Synex's common shares ("Common Shares"), representing approximately 5% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares, by way of a NCIB on the TSX or through alternative trading systems. As of May 16, 2022, Synex had 4,011,511 outstanding Common Shares. Based on the average daily trading volume of 1,372 Common Shares during the last six months, daily purchases will be limited to 1,000 Common Shares, other than block purchase exceptions.

Purchases will be made on behalf of the Company by a registered broker through facilities of the TSX at prevailing market prices pursuant to the rules of the TSX governing normal course issuer bids and/or through alternative Canadian trading platforms or as otherwise may be permitted by applicable securities regulatory authorities. Synex has not repurchased any Common Shares in the past 12 months.

Decisions regarding the timing of future purchases of Common Shares will be based on market conditions, share price and other factors. Synex may elect to suspend or discontinue its NCIB at any time. Common Shares purchased under the NCIB will be cancelled. Synex believes that the market price of its Common Shares may, from time to time, not reflect the inherent value of the Company, and that purchases of Common Shares pursuant to the NCIB may represent an appropriate and desirable use of the Company's funds. Therefore, Synex believes that it is in the best interest of the Company to proceed with the NCIB.

Pursuant to an automatic share purchase plan with its registered broker dated May 16, 2022 and effective on the commencement of the NCIB, Synex may, from time to time, when it does not possess material non-public information about itself or its securities, set certain pre-determined parameters to allow for the purchase of Common Shares at times when Synex ordinarily would not be active in the market due to its own internal trading blackout periods and insider trading rules.
