AUGUSTA INDUSTRIES $AAO.ca Normal Course Issuer Bid (NCIB) A Winning Move After Lock-Up Agreement $PHO.ca $DYA.ca $OPS.ca

Posted by Er at 12:57 PM on Wednesday, November 22nd, 2017

Following the November 9th announcement of a Lock-Up Agreement for 32% of the company’s shares, Augusta has surprised the market announcing a NCIB whereas up to 17,340,061 common shares representing up to 10% of the Company’s public float will be purchased through an Agent and subsequently cancelled. Once again AAO is demonstrating its commitment to create shareholder value through the process of reducing the available shares on the open market.

Allen Lone, President and CEO of Augusta stated:

The Company believes that the purchase of the Shares will increase the proportionate interest of, and be advantageous to, all remaining security holders.”

Not only is this excellent news for existing shareholders, it could potentially lead a surge in price if recent examples of NCIB’s in the market are any indicator; especially considering the following are peers of AAO.v:

Spartan Energy (TSX SPE)

Announced NCIB buy back August 22nd when price was $5.11. It went as high as $7.37.                                         Spartan’s NCIB buy back was based on 5% of 175m outstanding or 8.7 million shares

 

 

Genworth MI Canada Inc  (TSX MIC)

Announced their NCIB buy back May 2nd when price was $34.45. Genworth went as high
as $44.81. Their NCIB buy back was based on 5% of 90.9m outstanding, equivalent to 4.59 million shares

 

 

Augusta Announces Normal Course Issuer Bid

Augusta Industries November 14th NCIB announcement for up to 17,340,061 common shares separates itself from its peers.  Not only is Augusta consuming for closure another 10% of the Company’s public float, it is sending a clear message to its current and prospective shareholders; the company is preparing itself for the market to take notice.  Augusta is removing more shares on a percentage basis at 10% than the 5% & 5% that  Spartan & Genworth each removed through their respective NCIB.

The AGM is December 29th

AUGUSTA INDUSTRIES (AAO:TSXV) LOCK-UP AGREEMENT IS A WINNING STRATEGY $PHO.ca $DYA.ca $OPS.ca

AUGUSTA INDUSTRIES (AAO:TSXV) LOCK-UP AGREEMENT IS A WINNING STRATEGY

On September 29, 2016, Major Shareholders and Directors of dynaCERT announced a Lock-Up of more than 55,000,000 shares for 180 days, representing ~ 23% of the Company’s shares.  The purpose of the Lock-Up was stated as follows:

“Given the significant progress that has been achieved in recent months, we felt a Voluntary Lock-Up Agreement would demonstrate to shareholders and potential investors the commitment and confidence that management, directors and certain major shareholders have in the future of dynaCERT.”

The Company proceeded to make significant progress and its stock achieved the following performance over the next 12 months.

 

 

Augusta Industries Announces Lock-Up Agreement

On November 9th, Augusta Industries announced a Lock-Up Agreement for Directors and Officers holding 83.4 Million shares, representing 32% of the Company’s outstanding share amount.  One major term of the Agreement is the agreement to vote the shares in support of the Augusta Spin-Off of Fox-Tek Canada Inc.

Allen Lone, President and CEO of Augusta stated:

“The company continues to work with its advisers to ensure the success of the proposed spinoff of Fox-Tek and to ensure that it is done it a manner that is beneficial to its shareholders”

In both scenarios, management and major shareholders agreed to act in unison for the long-term benefit of each respective company and its shareholders.  Though a Lock-Up on it’s own does not create the kind of share price appreciation experienced by dynaCERT, both the underlying fundamental strengths and the shareholder unison can’t be denied as harbingers of a bright future.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Augusta revenues for 2016 / $4.6M
  • Augusta market cap is ~ $10,000,000 as of November 9, 2017
  • The proposed Spin-Off of FOX-TEK is expected to return up to $25,000,000 of stock to existing shareholders of Augusta.
  • Though terms of the Spin-Off are yet to be finalized, the proposed $2.5:$1 benefit to shareholders is now one step closer with the announcement of the Lock-Up Agreement.

Augusta $AAO.ca Provides Operational Update and Enters into Debt for Equity Conversion

  • FOX-TEK Canada Inc. has been able to generate new applications for its existing technologies and services.
  • Advancing leak detection technology the Company believes can be disruptive in the market
  • Initiated technology exchange program, the Company acquires existing client technology and modifies to include Augusta’s technology

Toronto, Ontario – Augusta Industries Inc. (TSXV: AAO) (the “Company”) would like to provide an operational update from its Vice President, Operations, Thierry Cherpillod.

While 2017 has been a difficult year to date for the oil and gas industry, the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, FOX-TEK Canada Inc. (“FOX-TEK”), has been able to generate new applications for its existing technologies and services. In addition to these new offerings, FOX-TEK has also been able to develop new relationships with oil and gas producers and enter into partnerships with third parties that will allow the Company to enter into new markets such as India, the United Kingdom, and the Caribbean region and to reach new clients in these countries. In discussions that the Company has had with new potential clients in these areas, the potential clients have expressed satisfaction that the partnership formed by the Company has given the potential clients a level of comfort as they will be dealing with the Company’s local partner.

FOX-TEK continues to work on the development of a leak detection technology which the Company believes can change the current landscape of leak detection. The goal of the Company is to develop a technology that will be low in cost, easy to install and will accurately detect leaks in existing pipelines. The new technology will also be able to detect volatile organic compounds which will provide it with an advantage that current offerings do not have.

FOX-TEK has also made great strides in identifying existing third party applications, such as micro-cracking detection, and monitoring of operationally critical injector ports, that can benefit from the Company’s current technologies. The Company’s researchers have identified existing client applications that require very specialized sensors and acquisition hardware and have been working towards integrating the Company’s technology with these applications. It is these additional services that the Company is able to provide that has helped the Company retain and acquire new clients.

Fox-Tex has recently commenced a technology exchange program whereby the Company will acquire its existing client’s technology and modify it to include the Company’s technology. This allows the Company’s clients to take its existing technology and have it enhanced with the Company’s more accurate and superior data analysis.

The Company would also like to announce that it has entered into a conversion agreement (the “Agreement”) with an arm’s length party. Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, the party has agreed to the issuance of an aggregate of 180,800 common shares (the “Shares”) as compensation for certain services rendered to the Company in the amount of $9,040. The Shares are being issued at a deemed price of $0.05 per share.

The issuance of the Shares is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
