Contrans Announces Normal Course Issuer Bid

WOODSTOCK, ON, March 13, 2013 /CNW/ - (TSX:CSS) Contrans Group Inc. ("Contrans") announced today that it intends to make a normal course issuer bid to purchase, through the facilities of the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX"), certain of its outstanding Class A Subordinate Voting Shares ("Class A Shares").

The number of Class A Shares to be purchased during the period of the normal course issuer bid (the "Bid") from March 15, 2013 to March 14, 2014 will not exceed 1,616,557 or approximately 5% of the issued and outstanding on February 28, 2013.
