MONTREAL, March 18, Mar 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) --
MONTREAL, March 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nuvei Corporation ("Nuvei" or the "Company")
, the global payment technology partner of thriving brands, today announced that, in connection with its previously announced normal course issuer bid ("NCIB") to purchase up to 6,617,416 of its subordinate voting shares ("Shares"), it recently entered into an automatic share purchase plan ("ASPP") with the designated broker responsible for the NCIB. The ASPP is intended to allow for the purchase of Shares under the NCIB at times when Nuvei would ordinarily not be permitted to purchase its securities due to regulatory restrictions and customary self-imposed blackout periods.
Pursuant to the ASPP, purchases will be made by the designated broker based on pre-established purchasing parameters, without further instructions by Nuvei, in compliance with the rules of the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") and the NASDAQ Global Select Market (the "Nasdaq"), applicable securities laws and the terms of the ASPP. The ASPP has been pre-cleared by the TSX and will be implemented as of today.
Outside of the ASPP, Shares may be purchased under the NCIB based on management's discretion, in compliance with the rules of the TSX and of the Nasdaq and applicable securities laws. The NCIB commenced on March 10, 2022 and will end no later than March 9, 2023. All purchases made under the ASPP will be included in computing the number of Shares purchased under the NCIB. As of the date hereof, the Company has purchased 1,175,766 Shares under the NCIB.
