Gran Tierra Energy Inc. Announces Approval Of Normal Course Issuer Bid And Establishment Of Automatic Securities Purchase Plan

11/03/2019 10:00am

UK Regulatory (RNS & others)

   CALGARY, Alberta, March 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gran Tierra Energy 
Inc. ("Gran Tierra" or the "Company") (NYSE American: 
GTE)(TSX:GTE)(LSE:GTE) today announces that it has received approval 
from the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") to implement a normal course 
issuer bid (the "NCIB") through the facilities of the TSX and eligible 
alternative trading platforms in Canada and that it has entered into an 
Automatic Securities Purchase Plan (the "ASPP") in connection with the 
NCIB. Pursuant to the NCIB, Gran Tierra is able to purchase for 
cancellation up to 5% of its issued and outstanding shares of common 
stock (the "Shares") for a one year period at prevailing market prices. 
The brokerage firm conducting the NCIB on behalf of Gran Tierra and 
administering the ASPP is RBC Dominion Securities Inc. The ASPP is 
intended to allow for the purchase of Shares under the NCIB when the 
Company would ordinarily not be permitted to purchase shares due to 
regulatory restrictions and customary self-imposed blackout periods. 
   Under the NCIB, Gran Tierra may repurchase for cancellation up to 
19,353,951 Shares. This represents approximately 5% of its 387,079,027 
issued and outstanding Shares as of March 1, 2019. These purchases will 
be made in accordance with applicable regulations over a maximum period 
of one year beginning on March 13, 2019 and ending on March 12, 2020. 
The average daily trading volume of the Shares over the six calendar 
months prior to the date hereof was 670,101. Accordingly, Gran Tierra is 
entitled to purchase, on any trading day, up to 167,525 Shares. The 
consideration that Gran Tierra will pay for any Shares acquired by it 
under the NCIB will be paid in cash at the market price of such Shares 
at the time of acquisition. 
   Management of Gran Tierra believes that the Shares, at times, have been 
trading in a price range which does not adequately reflect their value 
in relation to Gran Tierra's current operations, growth prospects and 
financial position. At such times, the purchase of Shares for 
cancellation or to satisfy awards granted under Gran Tierra's 2007 
Equity Incentive Plan may be advantageous to stockholders by increasing 
the value of the Shares. 
   Within the past twelve months, Gran Tierra purchased 5,516,389 Shares at 
a volume weighted average price of C$3.48 under a previously approved 
normal course issuer bid through the facilities of the TSX and eligible 
alternative trading platforms in Canada (March 12, 2018 to March 11, 
2019) permitting the purchase of up to 19,269,732 Shares. 
   Pursuant to the ASPP, outside of a trading blackout period, Gran Tierra 
may, but is not required to, instruct the designated broker to make 
purchases under the NCIB in accordance with the terms of the ASPP. Such 
purchases will be determined by the designated broker at its sole 
discretion based on purchasing parameters set by Gran Tierra in 
accordance with the rules of the TSX, applicable securities laws and the 
terms of the ASPP. The ASPP has been pre-cleared by the TSX and will be 
implemented on March 13, 2019. 
   Outside of blackout periods, Shares may be purchased under the NCIB 
based on management's discretion, in compliance with TSX rules and 
applicable securities laws. Purchases made under the ASPP will be 
included in computing the number of Shares purchased under the NCIB.
