Redknee announced acceptance by the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") of the Company's notice of intention to make a normal course issuer bid (the "Bid") in the open market through the facilities of the TSX.Pursuant to the TSX notice, the Company proposes to purchase, from time to time, up to an aggregate of 4,701,696 common shares on the TSX, which is the maximum number of shares permitted to be purchased under the TSX rules and represents 10% of the public float. The average daily trading volume of the common shares for the six month period prior to acceptance of the Bid was 40,476 (the "ADTV"). In accordance with the requirements of the TSX, the Company shall purchase no more than 10,119 common shares per day, being 25% of the ADTV unless the Company makes a block purchase.The specific timing and number of common shares purchased pursuant to the Bid will vary based on market conditions, regulatory requirements and other factors. The price that the Company will pay for any common shares will be the prevailing market price of such shares on the TSX at the time of acquisition. The purchases will be made by the Company in accordance with the TSX rules and policies. All common shares purchased by the Company pursuant to the Bid will be cancelled.The Board of Directors believes that, from time to time, the market price of the common shares may not reflect their underlying value and, therefore, the Bid is in the best interests of the Company and is a desirable use of corporate funds.Purchases over the TSX may commence on March 12, 2012 and the Bid will expire on March 11, 2013. As of March 8, 2012, the Company had 64,410,404 issued and outstanding common shares.Forward-Looking Statements</b>Certain statements in this document may constitute "forward-looking" statements which involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause our actual results, performance or achievements, or industry results, to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements.
