Nashville, Tennessee and Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - September 27, 2022) - Alpine Summit Energy Partners, Inc. (TSXV: ALPS.U) (OTCQX: ASEPF) ("Alpine Summit" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the TSXV Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") has approved an amendment to the Company's normal course issuer bid (the "NCIB"), which commenced on June 10, 2022 and will conclude on the earlier of the date on which purchases under the NCIB have been completed and June 9, 2023.
The NCIB was amended to reflect that the Company is permitted to enter into an automatic share purchase plan ("ASPP") with its designated broker, Leede Jones Gable Inc., to facilitate the purchase of its Subordinate Voting Shares under the NCIB during times when the Company would not ordinarily be permitted to purchase such shares due to regulatory restrictions or self-imposed black-out periods. The ASPP was pre-cleared by the TSXV and is expected to be implemented before September 30, 2022. All other terms and conditions of the NCIB remain the same.
Under the NCIB, the Company may purchase for cancellation up to 1,648,783 Subordinate Voting Shares (representing approximately 5% of its issued and outstanding Subordinate Voting Shares as of June 6, 2022). Since commencement of the NCIB, the Company has purchased for cancellation a total of 224,000 Subordinate Voting Shares for an aggregate purchase price of US$1,236,421.69.
Management of the Company believes that the recent share prices do not reflect the Company's asset value and may be undervalued by the market from time to time and that the purchases under the NCIB will enhance shareholder value. Accordingly, the Company believes purchasing its Subordinate Voting Shares may represent an appropriate and desirable use of the Company's available cash and represents an opportunity to enhance shareholder value.
All purchases under the NCIB, including pursuant to the ASPP, will continue to be made through the facilities of the TSXV in accordance with the applicable rules and policies of the TSXV and applicable Canadian securities laws. All Subordinate Voting Shares purchased under the NCIB will be cancelled.
