CIBT Announces Share Buy-Back
January 18th, 2011 CNW Group: CIBT Education Group Inc. (NYSE AMEX and TSX symbol: MBA) (“CIBT”) reports that it intends to conduct a normal course issuer bid (“NCIB”) to purchase for re-sale approximately 2,000,000 to 3,000,000 of its common shares representing approximately 4.3% to 6.5% of its public float, to a maximum aggregate acquisition cost of approximately $1,000,000. The NCIB is subject to Toronto Stock Exchange (the “Exchange”) approval.
Share purchases under the NCIB will be conducted through the facilities of the Exchange. The actual number of shares purchased, and the timing of any such purchases, will be determined by CIBT, in accordance with the rules of the Exchange.
The application for the NCIB is being implemented because management is of the view that CIBT’s stock is currently undervalued. The company has not purchased any of its common shares through a normal course issuer bid during the past 12 months.
