Coloured Ties Provides Corporate And SIB Updates

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – July 11, 2023) – Coloured Ties Capital Inc. (TSXV: TIE) (“CTI” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce, further to the Company’s news release on June 12, 2023 announcing the Company’s substantial issuer bid (the “Offer“) under which the Company will offer to purchase for cancellation up to C$9,000,000 of its outstanding common shares (the “Shares“), that the Offer is awaiting regulatory approvals and is expected to commence on or about July 24, 2023 and the expiry date of the Offer is expected to be on or about August 28, 2023.

The Offer is being made by way of a “modified Dutch auction,” which will allow shareholders who choose to participate in the Offer to individually select the price, with a range of not less than C$0.92 per Share and not more than C$1.00 per Share (in increments of $0.01 per Share), at which they are willing to sell their Shares. Upon expiry of the Offer, the Company will determine the lowest purchase price (which will not be more than C$1.00 per Share and not less than $0.92 per Share) (the “Purchase Price“) that will allow it to purchase the maximum number of Shares tendered to the Offer, and not withdrawn, having an aggregate purchase price not exceeding C$9,000,000.

Shareholders who wish to participate in the Offer will be able to do so through (i) auction tenders in which they specify the number of Shares being tendered at a specific price per Share, or (ii) purchase price tenders in which they agree to have a specified number of Shares purchased at the purchase price to be determined pursuant to the auction and have their Shares considered as having been tendered at the minimum price of $0.92 for the purposes of determining the purchase price. Shareholders who validly deposit Shares without specifying the method in which they are tendering their Shares will be deemed to have made a purchase price tender.

If the Offer would result in an aggregate purchase price of more than C$9,000,000, the Company will purchase a pro-rated portion of the Shares so tendered pursuant to auction tenders at or below the Purchase Price and purchase price tenders (after giving preferential treatment to “odd lot” holders).

The Offer is optional for all shareholders, who are free to choose whether to participate, how many Shares to tender and, in the case of auction tenders, at what price to tender within the specified range. Any shareholders who do not deposit their Shares (or whose Shares are not repurchased under the Offer) will realize a proportionate increase in their equity interest in the Company, to the extent that Shares are purchased under the Offer.

The Offer will not be conditional upon any minimum number of Shares being tendered. The Offer will, however, be subject to other conditions and the Company reserves the right, subject to applicable laws, to withdraw or amend the Offer, if, at any time prior to the payment of deposited Shares, certain events occur. Details of the Offer, including the full terms and conditions of the Offer and instructions for tending Shares to the Offer, will be included in the formal offer to purchase and issuer bid circular and other related documents (the “Offer Documents“), which are expected to be mailed to shareholders, filed with securities regulators and made available shortly on SEDAR at

Neither the Company nor its board of directors makes any recommendation to shareholders as to whether to tender or refrain from tendering any or all of their Shares to the Offer. This press release is neither an offer to purchase nor a solicitation of an offer to sell any Shares. The solicitation and the offer to purchase Shares by the Company is being made only pursuant to the Offer Documents. Shareholders of the Company are urged to read the Offer Documents carefully and to consult with their own financial, tax and legal advisors prior to making any decision with respect to the Offer.
