Genworth MI Canada Inc. Announces Acceptance By TSX Of Normal Course Issuer Bid

Stocks in this article: MIC

The NCIB will be implemented by the Company's broker responsible for making purchases of Common Shares on behalf of Genworth Canada pursuant to an automatic purchase plan agreement to be entered into between such broker and Genworth Canada (the "APP Agreement").  Pursuant to the APP Agreement, the timing for the purchase of Common Shares, the number of Common Shares purchased and the price payable for the Common Shares will be determined by the Company's broker in its sole discretion, without consultation with the Company, having regard to the price limitations and other terms of the APP Agreement, as well as the prevailing market price of the Common Shares at the time of purchase.  The APP Agreement has been reviewed by the TSX and will be implemented following commencement of the NCIB.

Purchases from Genworth Financial will be made pursuant to the TSX exemption on any trading day that the Company makes a purchase from other shareholders. Purchases from Genworth Financial will be made during the TSX's Special Trading Session pursuant to an automatic disposition plan agreement to be entered into between the Company's broker and Genworth Financial. In the event that Genworth Financial does not sell Common Shares on any trading day (other than as a result of a market disruption), the TSX exemption will cease to apply and the Company will not be permitted to make any further purchases from Genworth Financial under the terms of the NCIB.
