VANCOUVER, BC, Nov. 14, 2023 /CNW/ - East Side Games Group Inc. (TSX: EAGR) (OTC: EAGRF) ("ESGG" or the "Company") announces the renewal of its normal course issuer bid (the "NCIB").

The Company's board of directors believes that the market price of the Company's common shares (the "Shares"), from time to time, may not reflect the inherent value of the Company, and purchases of Shares pursuant to the NCIB represent an appropriate and desirable use of the Company's funds. Any purchases made under the NCIB will be made by the Company subject to favorable market conditions at the prevailing market price at the time of acquisition through the facilities of the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") and other alternative Canadian trading systems.

The Company's board of directors has approved such renewal, and the TSX has accepted the Company's notice of intention to commence with a new NCIB for a one-year period. This enables the Company to purchase up to 4,076,819 of its Shares, representing approximately 5% of its outstanding Shares as of November 10, 2023, over the next 12 months commencing November 16, 2023 in accordance with the applicable policies of the TSX and securities laws.

Under the NCIB, other than purchases made pursuant to block purchase exemptions, the Company may purchase up to 3,330 Shares on the TSX and other alternative Canadian trading systems during any trading day, which represents approximately 25% of the average daily trading volume of the Shares on the TSX for the past six calendar months, being 13,321 shares per day. The Company may cancel any Shares repurchased under the NCIB, or reserve them for awards under its equity compensation plan.

In conjunction with the NCIB, the Company has renewed its automatic share purchase plan (the "ASPP") with a designated broker to allow for the purchase of its Shares under the NCIB at times when the Company normally would not be active in the market due to applicable regulatory restrictions or internal trading blackout periods. The ASPP has been pre-cleared by the TSX and is effective November 16, 2023, the commencement date of the NCIB. The ASPP constitutes an "automatic securities purchase plan" under applicable Canadian securities laws. Shares purchased under the ASPP will be included in computing the number of Shares purchased under the NCIB. Outside of these internal trading blackout periods, purchases under the NCIB will be made based on management's discretion.

Although the Company intends to purchase Shares under its NCIB, there can be no assurances that any such purchases will be completed.

The Company previously purchased a total of 733,879 shares out of the 4,076,819 share authorized under the previous NCIB, which commenced on August 15, 2022 and terminated on August 14, 2023, at a volume weighted average price per share of $0.95. All shares were purchased on the open market through the facilities of the Toronto Stock Exchange.
