Destiny Media Technologies Inc. Announces Share Consolidation and Normal Course Issuer Bid
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. – August 21, 2019) - Destiny Media Technologies Inc. (TSXV:DSY)(OTCQB:DSNY) ("Destiny" or the "Company") announced today that the board of directors of the Company has approved a proposed consolidation of its outstanding shares of common stock (the “Shares”) on the basis of five (5) pre-consolidation shares for one (1) post-consolidation share (the "Consolidation"), subject to regulatory approval.
As at August 20, 2019, a total of 55,013,874 shares were issued and outstanding in the capital of the Company. Assuming completion of the Consolidation, it is expected that there will be a total of approximately 11,002,775 shares issued and outstanding.
Subject to regulatory approval and completion of the Consolidation, the Company intends to conduct a normal course issuer bid (the "Bid") pursuant to which the Company may purchase up to a maximum of 550,140 post-Consolidation shares of common stock in the capital of the Company (the "Shares"), representing approximately 5% of the outstanding Shares. No more than 2% of the outstanding Shares may be purchased in any 30-day period.
The Company intends to commence the Bid on or about September 16, 2019 and terminate the Bid on or about September 15, 2020. Purchases pursuant to the Bid will be made from time to time by RBC Dominion Securities Inc. on behalf of the Company through the facilities of the TSX Venture Exchange. Shares purchased will be paid for with cash available from the Company's working capital. All Shares purchased pursuant to the Bid will be returned to treasury as authorized but unissued shares.
The Company sees tremendous growth opportunities that can be pursued by reinvesting existing profitability. The Company is of the view that the recent market prices of its shares do not properly reflect the underlying value of the shares. The Company has in excess of $2.7M in cash and short term investments and has trailing 4 quarters net income of $0.668M. No insiders of the Company intend to participate in the Bid.
The Company believes that a reverse consolidation will provide greater clarity to investors of earnings, provide greater access to potential investors, and will better represent the underlying financial health of the organization.
