Sandstorm Gold Ltd. announces that the Company’s normal course issuer bid (“NCIB”) is being renewed after the existing NCIB expires on April 6, 2022. The current NCIB provides Sandstorm with the option to purchase up to 19.1 million of the Company’s common shares (“Common Shares”) from time to time when Sandstorm’s management believes that the Common Shares are undervalued by the market. Under the renewed NCIB, Sandstorm may purchase up to 18.9 million of its Common Shares, representing approximately 10% of the Company’s issued and outstanding Common Shares of 192,224,215 as of March 31, 2022, less those Common Shares held by the Company’s directors and senior officers. The new NCIB also provides Sandstorm with the option to purchase its Common Shares from time to time when Sandstorm’s management believes that the Common Shares are undervalued by the market. The Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX”) has accepted the Company’s notice that it intends to proceed with a NCIB in accordance with TSX rules. Purchases under the renewed NCIB may commence on April 7, 2022 and will terminate on the earlier of April 6, 2023, the date that Sandstorm completes its purchases pursuant to the NCIB as filed with the TSX, or the date of notice by Sandstorm of termination of the NCIB.
All purchases under the NCIB will be executed on the open market through the facilities of the TSX or alternative Canadian trading platforms and through the facilities of the NYSE or alternative trading platforms in the United States of America. Purchases will be made at the market price of the Common Shares at the time of acquisition and may be funded by Sandstorm’s working capital. Any Common Shares acquired by the Company under the NCIB will be cancelled. Sandstorm’s average daily trading volume on the TSX during the last six calendar months was 270,139 Common Shares. Under the rules of the TSX, subject to the Company’s ability to make block purchases, daily purchases on the TSX under the NCIB will not exceed 67,534 Common Shares, which represents 25% of the average daily trading volume on the TSX during the last six calendar months. The maximum number of Common Shares which can be purchased per day on the NYSE will be 25% of the average daily trading volume for the four calendar weeks preceding the date of purchase, subject to certain exceptions for block purchases.
The actual number of Common Shares that may be purchased and the timing of such purchases will be determined by the Company. Decisions regarding purchases will be based on market conditions, share price, best use of available cash, and other factors.
In the last twelve months, the Company has purchased 4,651,049 Common Shares pursuant to its NCIB at a weighted average price of approximately C$7.95 per common share on the TSX and alternates and approximately US$6.19 per common share on the NYSE and alternates.
