Firm Capital Property Trust Announces Normal Course Issuer Bid


TORONTO, July 13, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Firm Capital Property Trust ("FCPT" or the "Trust"), (TSX: FCD.UN) announced today that the Toronto Stock Exchange (the “TSX”) has accepted a notice filed by FCPT of its intention to make a normal course issuer bid (the “NCIB”) with respect to its outstanding trust units.

The notice provides that FCPT may, during the 12 month period commencing July 18, 2023 and ending no later than July 17, 2024, purchase through the facilities of the TSX and/or alternative Canadian Trading Systems up to 3,324,528 trust units in total, being 10% of the “public float” of trust units as of July 4, 2023. The price which FCPT will pay for any trust units will be the market price at the time of acquisition. During the period of this NCIB, FCPT may make purchases under the NCIB by means of open market transactions. The actual number of trust units which may be purchased pursuant to the NCIB and the timing of any such purchases will be determined by senior management of FCPT. The average daily trading volume on the TSX from January 1, 2023 to June 30, 2023 was 19,006 trust units. Daily purchases under the NCIB will be generally limited to 4,751 trust units, other than block purchases. All trust units purchased by FCPT under the NCIB will be cancelled.

As of July 4, 2023, there were 36,925,197 trust units of FCPT outstanding, and the public float was 33,245,286 trust units.

FCPT may purchase its trust units, from time to time, if it believes that the market price of its trust units is attractive and that the purchase would be an appropriate use of corporate funds and in the best interests of FCPT.

Pursuant to a previous notice of intention to conduct a NCIB, under which FCPT sought and received approval from the TSX to purchase up to 3,439,640 trust units for the period of July 18, 2022 to July 17, 2023, FCPT purchased for cancellation, as of June 30, 2023, 589,600 trust units through open market purchases at a volume weighted average price of $5.71. FCPT’s previous NCIB expires on July 18, 2023.
