TORONTO, May 1, 2023 -- Base Carbon Inc. (NEO: BCBN) (OTCQX: BCBNF) ("Base Carbon", or the "Company"), a financier and developer of emission reduction, removal and related climate action projects, announced today that it has entered into an automatic share purchase plan ("ASPP") with a broker in order to facilitate repurchases of Base Carbon's common shares ("Common Shares") under its previously announced normal course issuer bid ("NCIB").
The Company previously announced that it had received approval from the NEO Exchange ("NEO") to, during the 12-month period commencing June 17, 2022 and terminating June 16, 2023, purchase up to 8,716,601 Common Shares representing approximately 7% of the 127,663,680 Common Shares issued and outstanding as of June 15, 2022, by way of a NCIB on the NEO or through alternative trading systems or by such other means as may be permitted under applicable law.
During the effective period of Base Carbon's ASPP, Base Carbon's broker may purchase Common Shares at times when the Company would not be active in the market due to insider trading rules and its own internal trading blackout periods.

In some cases, but not necessarily in all cases, forward-looking information may be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “expects”, “anticipates”, “intends”, “contemplates”, “believes”, “projects”, “plans” or variations of such words and similar expressions or state that certain actions, events or results “may”, “could”, “would”, “might”, “will” or “will be taken”, “occur” or “be achieved”. In addition, any statements that refer to expectations, projections or other characterizations of future events or circumstances contain forward-looking information.

Statements about, among other things, Base Carbon’s strategic plans and purchases under the NCIB and ASPP are all forward-looking information. These statements should not be read as guarantees of future performance, results, or achievements.
Although management believes that the anticipated future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking information are based upon reasonable assumptions and expectations, readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking information because it involves assumptions, known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements to differ materially from anticipated future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking information.
The forward-looking statements made herein are subject to a variety of risk factors and uncertainties, many of which are beyond the Company’s control, which could cause actual events or results to differ materially and adversely from those reflected in the forward-looking statements.

Should one or more of the risks and uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual events or results may vary materially and adversely from those described in the forward-looking information. The forward-looking information contained in this press release is provided as of the date of this press release, and the Company expressly disclaims any obligation to update or alter statements containing any forward-looking information, or the factors or assumptions underlying them, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law.
