Vertex Resource Group Ltd. Announces Normal Course Issuer Bid

Posted On August 25, 2023

SHERWOOD PARK, AB, August 25, 2023 /CNW/ – (TSXV: VTX) – Vertex Resource Group Ltd. (“Vertex” or the “Company”) announced today that it has received approval from the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”) to commence a Normal Course Issuer Bid (the “NCIB”).  The NCIB will commence on August 30, 2023, and end on August 29, 2024.

Under the  NCIB, Vertex may purchase for cancellation,  through the facilities of  Exchange, other designated exchanges, and/or alternative Canadian trading systems, if in the best interest of the  Company,  a  maximum of 5,781,045 Common Shares (the “Shares”),  which represents approximately  5%  of the  Shares outstanding as at August 25, 2023. Over any 30-day period, Vertex will not purchase more than 2,312,417 Shares in total, which represents 2% of the Shares issued and outstanding as of August 25, 2023.

All purchases of the Shares are to be made through the facilities of the Exchange, other designated exchanges and/or alternative Canadian trading systems, in accordance with their rules and regulations.  The price which the Company will pay for any such Shares will be the prevailing market price at the time of acquisition and all Shares will be purchased for cancellation.

Acumen Capital Finance Partners Limited (the “Broker”) will be handling the NCIB on behalf of the Company.  The actual number of Shares that may be purchased pursuant to the NCIB and the timing of any such purchases will be determined by the management of the Company with the exception that, the Company also entered into an automatic securities purchase plan with the Broker to allow for the repurchase of Shares at times when the Company ordinarily would not be active in the market due to its own internal trading blackout periods, insider trading rules or otherwise.

The Board of Directors believes the underlying value of the Company may not be reflected in the current market price of its Shares. As a result, depending upon future price movements and other factors, the Board believes that the Shares may represent an attractive investment to the Company and in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders. Furthermore, the purchases are expected to benefit all persons who continue to hold Shares by increasing their equity interest in the Company if the repurchased Shares are cancelled.

A copy of the Company’s notice filed with the Exchange may be obtained, by any shareholder without charge, by contacting the Company’s Chief Financial Officer.

By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions. The Corporation cautions that its assumptions may not materialize and that current economic conditions render such assumptions, although reasonable at the time they were made, subject to greater uncertainty.

Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results or performance of the Corporation to be materially different from the outlook or any future results or performance implied by such statements. Accordingly, readers are advised not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. Important risk factors that could affect the forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, the effects of general economic and business conditions; industry competition; inflation, currency and interest rate fluctuations; legislative and/or regulatory developments; compliance with environmental laws and regulations; actions by regulators; increases in maintenance and operating costs; security threats; reliance on technology and related cybersecurity risk; trade restrictions or other changes to international trade arrangements; transportation of hazardous materials; various events which could disrupt operations, including natural events such as severe weather, droughts, fires, floods and earthquakes; climate change; labor negotiations and disruptions; environmental claims; uncertainties of investigations, proceedings or other types of claims and litigation; timing and completion of capital programs; and other risks detailed from time to time in reports filed by Vertex with securities regulators in Canada.
