MCI Onehealth Implements Automatic Share Purchase Plan
TORONTO, July 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MCI Onehealth Technologies Inc. ("MCI") (TSX: DRDR), a clinician-led healthcare technology company focused on increasing access to and quality of healthcare, has entered into an automatic share purchase plan (the “ASPP”) with TD Securities Inc., its designated broker, to facilitate repurchases of MCI’s Class A Subordinate Voting Shares (the “Shares”) under its previously announced normal course issuer bid (the “NCIB”). The ASPP is intended to allow for the purchase of Shares under the NCIB at times when MCI may not ordinarily be permitted to purchase its shares due to regulatory restrictions and self-imposed blackout periods.
Under the current terms of the NCIB, which commenced on May 19, 2021, MCI can purchase up to 2,435,129 Shares until the expiry of the NCIB on May 18, 2022. For further details regarding the NCIB, please see MCI’s press release dated May 17, 2021, a copy of which is available under MCI’s profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
Pursuant to the ASPP, the designated broker is authorized to purchase up to 320,000 Shares commencing on July 12, 2021 until the expiry of the NCIB on May 18, 2022. Such purchases will be determined by the broker at its sole discretion based on the purchasing parameters set out by the Corporation in accordance with the rules of the Toronto Stock Exchange (the “TSX”), applicable securities laws and the terms of the ASPP. The ASPP has been pre-cleared by the TSX and shall be implemented effective today, July 8, 2021. The ASPP will terminate on the earlier of the date on which: (i) the NCIB expires; and (ii) the Corporation terminates the ASPP in accordance with its terms.
Outside of the ASPP, Shares may continue to be purchased under the NCIB based on management’s discretion, in compliance with the rules of the TSX and applicable securities laws. All purchases made under the ASPP will be included in the number of Shares available for purchase and cancellation under the NCIB.
