CES Energy Solutions Corp. Announces Intent to Implement a Normal Course Issuer Bid and Doubling of Monthly Cash Dividend
June 14, 2018 --
CALGARY, Alberta, June 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CES Energy Solutions Corp. (“CES” or the “Corporation”) (TSX:CEU) (OTC:CESDF) is pleased to announce its intent to implement a normal course issuer bid (“NCIB”) and the approval by the Board of Directors of the Corporation to double its monthly cash dividend to $0.005 per common share. The increased cash dividend of $0.005 per common share will be paid on July 13, 2018 to the shareholders of record at the close of business on June 29, 2018.
CES continues to see improvement in its financial position and the Corporation’s Board of Directors and management believe that the market price of CES’s common shares do not reflect their underlying value. As such, the Corporation intends to implement an NCIB to purchase up to 10% of the public float for the outstanding common shares for cancellation through the Toronto Stock Exchange and other alternative Canadian securities trading platforms. The combination of the implementation of a NCIB and the doubling of its dividend will allow CES to return capital to shareholders and continue to create shareholder value.
