Roxgold Announces Share Repurchase Program

Kitco News

Roxgold Inc. (TSX: ROXG) has announced a program to buy back shares. Specifically, Roxgold is implementing a “normal course issuer bid,” which has been accepted by the Toronto Stock Exchange, because the company “believes that from time to time the market price of Roxgold’s common shares does not reflect the underlying value of the common shares.” The company says it ended the first quarter with a cash balance of $72.2 million. “The NCIB will allow Roxgold to purchase common shares for cancellation if, in the opinion of management, the purchases can be made on terms which will enhance the value of the remaining outstanding common shares,” Roxgold says. The program will begin Wednesday. Roxgold can purchase up to 10 million shares, representing 2.7% of Roxgold’s outstanding shares).
