In the past 12 months, STI purchased 399,089 Common Shares for cancellation at a weighted average price of $6.27 per share pursuant to its existing normal course issuer bid that expires on October 23, 2013.
The notice of intention provides that no appraisal or valuation regarding STI, its material assets or securities, has been prepared within the two years preceding the date of the notice.
To the knowledge of STI, no director, senior officer or other insider of STI currently intends to sell any Common Shares under the bid. However, sales by such persons through the facilities of the TSX may occur if the personal circumstances of any such person change or any such person makes a decision unrelated to these normal course purchases. The benefits to any such person whose Common Shares are purchased would be the same as the benefits available to all other security holders whose Common Shares are purchased.
