TORONTO, ON. (May 11, 2022) – RF Capital Group Inc. (the Company) (TSX: RCG) today announced that, in connection with its previously announced normal course issuer bid (NCIB) to purchase up to 548,571 of its common shares, it has entered into an automatic share purchase plan (ASPP) with the designated broker responsible for the NCIB. The ASPP is intended to allow for the purchase of common shares under the NCIB at times when the Company would ordinarily not be permitted to purchase its securities due to regulatory restrictions and customary self-imposed blackout periods.
Pursuant to the ASPP, purchases will be made by the designated broker based on pre-established purchasing parameters, without further instructions by the Company, in compliance with the rules of the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX), applicable securities laws and the terms of the ASPP. The ASPP has been pre-cleared by the TSX and will be implemented on or around May 16, 2022.
Outside of the ASPP, common shares may be purchased under the NCIB based on management’s discretion, in compliance with TSX rules and applicable securities laws. The NCIB commenced on March 9, 2022, and will end no later than March 8, 2023. All purchases made under the ASPP will be included in computing the number of common shares purchased under the NCIB. As of the date hereof, the Company has not purchased any common shares under its NCIB.
