BRAMPTON, Ontario – September 18, 2020 – DATA Communications Management Corp. (“DCM” or the “Company”)(TSX:DCM), a leading provider of marketing and business communications solutions to companies across North America, announced today that Chris Lund, Chief Innovation Officer of the Company, has purchased additional common shares of DCM (“Common Shares”), which, assuming the exercise of all convertible securities to acquire Common Shares held by Mr. Lund and his spouse, would result in Mr. Lund and his spouse holding more than 10% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares.
The following information is being provided on behalf of Mr. Lund in accordance with National Instrument 62-103 – The Early Warning System and Related Take-Over Bid and Insider Reporting Issues.
Mr. Lund is a participant in the Company’s employee share ownership plan (“ESOP”), pursuant to which Mr. Lund has elected to make regular, voluntary, bi-monthly payroll contributions based upon a certain percentage of his base salary, which funds are used to purchase Common Shares on the Toronto Stock Exchange. On September 17, 2020, Mr. Lund acquired beneficial ownership of, or control over, a total of 7,994 Common Shares (the “Acquired Shares”) at a price of $0.2606 per Common Share and an aggregate purchase price of $2,083.33. The Acquired Shares were acquired by Mr. Lund under the ESOP.
Immediately prior to the acquisition of the Acquired Shares, Mr. Lund and his joint actors had beneficial ownership of, or control over, 4,087,317 Common Shares, and warrants to acquire up to 215,450 Common Shares at an exercise price of $0.185 per share (the “Warrants”), representing 9.99% of the outstanding Common Shares (in each case prior to giving effect to the Acquired Shares). After giving effect to the acquisition of the Acquired Shares, and assuming the exercise in whole of the Warrants, Mr. Lund and his joint actors have beneficial ownership of, or control over, 4,310,761 Common Shares, representing 10.01% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares.
Mr. Lund purchased the Acquired Shares for investment purposes. Other than the possible exercise of the Warrants, Mr. Lund and his joint actors do not have any present plans or intentions to acquire or dispose of Common Shares, other than through the acquisition of additional Common Shares through his continued participation in the ESOP.
Mr. Lund and his joint actors may, however, increase or decrease their beneficial ownership of, or control over, the Common Shares, directly or indirectly, in the future in the open market, in privately-negotiated purchases or otherwise, depending on, among other things, the Company’s business and prospects, market and general economic conditions and other available investment opportunities. Mr. Lund currently expects to continue to purchase Common Shares pursuant to his participation in the ESOP, however he may increase, decrease, or cease such participation at a future date, depending on similar factors.
A copy of the report required to be filed by Mr. Lund pursuant to the early warning requirements of applicable securities laws, once filed on SEDAR, may be obtained from the Chief Financial Officer of the Company at the telephone number set out below.
