~Management believes that the current market price of Montfort’s ordinary shares does not reflect the underlying value and future prospects of the Company~

VANCOUVER, BC, November 1, 2022 /CNW/ – Montfort Capital Corporation (“Montfort” or the “Company”) (TSXV: MONT) (OTCQB: MONTF), a leader in private credit technology innovation, is pleased to announce its intention to launch a normal course issuer bid through of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”) and Alternative Trading Systems (“ATS”) to repurchase for cancellation up to 4,575,286 common shares of the Company (“Shares”), representing approximately 5% of the issued and outstanding shares of the Company (“the NCIB”). As of the date hereof, the Company has 91,505,730 shares outstanding.

The Company believes that from time to time the market price of its Shares does not adequately reflect the underlying value and future prospects of the Company and that at such times the purchase of Shares of the Company represents an appropriate use of the Company’s financial resources and will increase shareholder value. OPNA will begin on November 3, 2022 and will end on the earliest of the following dates: (i) the Company purchases 4,575,286 Shares, (ii) the Company provides notice of termination of the tender offer, and (iii) November 3, 2023. Under the terms of the issuer bid, the Company may not acquire more than 2% of its issued and outstanding common shares during a 30-day period.

The issuer bid will be made through the facilities of the TSX-V and the ATS, and purchase and payment for the shares will be made in accordance with the requirements of the TSX-V and the ATS at the market of the securities applicable at the time of acquisition, plus brokerage fees, if any, charged by the broker. All securities purchased by the Company under the public buyback offer will be cancelled. Montfort reserves the right to terminate the OPNA at any time.

Montfort has engaged Haywood Securities to act as broker through which the OPRCN will be effected.

Appointment of PwC LLP as statutory auditor

PwC’s additional capabilities and regional experience will provide the Company with enhanced audit committee oversight.

There were no qualifications in ME’s audit reports for any financial period during which ME was the Company’s auditor. There are no “reportable events” (as that term is defined in National Instrument 51-102 – Continuous Disclosure Obligations) between the Company and ME.

In accordance with NI 51-102, the Notice of Change of Auditor, together with the required letters from ME and PwC, have been reviewed by the Company’s Audit Committee and have been filed on SEDAR.
