Mediagrif Announces a Normal Course Issuer Bid

12:00 EST Thursday, February 20, 2014


LONGUEUIL, QC, Feb. 20, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Mediagrif Interactive Technologies Inc. ("Mediagrif" or the "Corporation") (TSX: MDF), a world-leading operator of e-business solutions, announces that it has obtained approval from the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") in order to proceed with a Normal Course Issuer Bid.

Therefore, beginning on February 24, 2014, Mediagrif will be authorized to acquire for cancellation, from time to time, during a twelve-month period and when it deems it appropriate, up to a maximum of 300 000 common shares, representing approximately 1.9% of the 15,833 775 issued and outstanding shares as of February 19, 2014. Mediagrif's management considers that the acquisition of common shares in the course of this Issuer Bid may represent a sound use of the Corporation's funds both for the Corporation and for its shareholders. All purchases will be made through the facilities of the TSX.

None of Mediagrif's directors or senior officers, nor any of their associates, nor any person acting jointly or in concert with Mediagrif, or holding 10% or more of the shares of any class of shares of Mediagrif, will receive any direct or indirect benefit as a result of this Normal Course Issuer Bid other than the benefits conferred upon all the shareholders of Mediagrif.

Purchases on the Normal Course Issuer Bid may commence on February 24, 2014 until, at the latest, February 23, 2015. The average daily trading volume ("ADTV") of Mediagrif's common shares on the TSX was 5 762 for the six-month period, which started on August 1, 2013 through January 31, 2014. Based on that number, Mediagrif would be entitled to purchase up to 25% of the ADTV on any trading day, being 1 440 common shares.  In accordance with the rules of the TSX, a listed issuer may make one block purchase per calendar week that exceeds the daily repurchase restriction.
