The Tokens.com Board of Directors believes that the market price of the company’s shares, from time to time, may not reflect the inherent value of the company and the share purchases under the public offering. redemption may be an appropriate and desirable use of funds.
“Our shares have been impacted by declining crypto prices, as well as macroeconomic events and headlines, which are unrelated to the performance of our business. Although our three business segments had positive revenue growth, this has not translated into market recognition of the value within the company,” said Andrew Kiguel, CEO of Tokens.com. “Tokens.com remains viable, well capitalized and committed to growing its Web3 business. Management does not believe our actions currently reflect the value of the company.”
The purchase of Shares can begin on November 1, 2022 and will expire on October 31, 2023 or the date on which the Company acquires the maximum number of Shares authorized or otherwise decides not to proceed with further redemptions.

The price the Company will pay for any share will be the market price at the time of purchase or any other price permitted by the CSA. Any private purchase made pursuant to an exemption order issued by a securities regulatory authority will generally be made at a discount to the prevailing market price. As part of the OPRCN, Tokens.com will enter into an automatic purchase plan (“Plan”) with its designated broker to enable the purchase of its Shares during internal blackout periods. Such purchases would be at the broker’s discretion based on parameters established by the Company prior to any blackout period or any period during which it is in possession of material undisclosed information.
