McCoy Global Inc. Announces Approval of Normal Course Issuer Bid
August 18, 2022 – Edmonton, Alberta – McCoy Global Inc. (“McCoy,” “McCoy Global” or “the Corporation”) (TSX:MCB) today announced that that it has received approval from the Toronto Stock Exchange (the “TSX”) to undertake a proposed normal course issuer bid (the “Bid”) to purchase up to 1,420,874 common shares, representing approximately 5% of the issued and outstanding common shares of McCoy.
McCoy’s management and Board of Directors believe that the current market price of its common shares does not represent the underlying value of the Corporation, and has determined that the repurchase of its common shares is a desirable use of funds and in the best interests of the Corporation and its shareholders.
Purchases under the Bid will be made through the facilities of the TSX or any Canadian alternative trading system. The period of the Bid will extend from August 22, 2022 to August 21, 2023, or an earlier date should McCoy complete its purchases. All common shares purchased under the Bid will be cancelled. The actual number of common shares purchased, the time of purchases, and the price at which the common shares will be acquired will depend on future market conditions.
As at August 15, 2022, 28,417,489 common shares of McCoy were issued and outstanding. Under the rules of the TSX and subject to certain exemptions for block purchases, the maximum number of common shares that the Corporation may purchase on any one trading day is 5,418 common shares, representing 25% of the average daily trading volume of 21,673 common shares for the previous six calendar months.

Forward looking statements regarding the Corporation are based on certain key expectations and assumptions of the Corporation concerning anticipated financial performance, business prospects, strategies, the sufficiency of budgeted capital expenditures in carrying out planned activities, the availability and cost of labour and services and the ability to obtain financing on acceptable terms, which are subject to change based on market conditions and potential timing delays. Although management of the Corporation consider these assumptions to be reasonable based on information currently available to them, they may prove to be incorrect. By their very nature, forward looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties (both general and specific) and risks that forward looking statements will not be achieved. Undue reliance should not be placed on forward looking statements, as a number of important factors could cause the actual results to differ materially from the beliefs, plans, objectives, expectations, anticipations, estimates and intentions expressed in the forward looking statements, including inability to meet current and future obligations; inability to complete or effectively integrate strategic acquisitions; inability to implement the Corporation’s business strategy effectively; access to capital markets; fluctuations in oil and gas prices; fluctuations in capital expenditures of the Corporation’s target market; competition for, among other things, labour, capital, materials and customers; interest and currency exchange rates; technological developments; global political and economic conditions; global natural disasters or disease; and inability to attract and retain key personnel. Readers are cautioned that the foregoing list is not exhaustive. The reader is further cautioned that the preparation of financial statements in accordance with IFRS requires management to make certain judgments and estimates that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses. These judgments and estimates may change, having either a negative or positive effect on net earnings as further information becomes available, and as the economic environment changes. The information contained in this News Release identifies additional factors that could affect the operating results and performance of the Corporation. We urge you to carefully consider those factors. The forward looking statements contained herein are expressly qualified in their entirety by this cautionary statement.
