TORONTO, ON, May 22, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE – Tree of Knowledge International Corp. (CSE: TOKI) (the "Company" or “TOKI”) is pleased to announce the completion of an order of 23,000 thermometers to a healthcare distributor in Chicago, IL, facilitated by TOKI management. This order marks the Company’s first medical equipment supply transaction into the United States.
Michael Caridi, the Company’s chairman, states, “TOKI is proud to be on the forefront of this fight against COVID-19. We will continue to leverage our network to provide the US and Canada the critical PPE supply necessary during these trying times.”
The Company’s US division, Tree of Knowledge, Inc., has made a pivot during these uncertain times to leverage its medical contacts and international relationships to procure medical equipment and personal protective equipment (PPE) to governments, municipalities, and healthcare distributors in Canada and the US. Tree of Knowledge understands the difficulty in supplying medical equipment and is hopeful this successful US transaction offers the Company the ability and trust to supply many more municipalities, governments, and healthcare distributors in the US and Canada.
Notwithstanding the Company’s recent PPE transactions, the US division continues to concurrently build the Company’s ongoing CBD products business.
The Company is also pleased to announce its intention to commence a normal course issuer bid (“NCIB”), under which the Company may purchase up to 12,535,300 of the Company’s common shares, representing approximately 5% of its issued and outstanding common shares. The Company is commencing the NCIB because it believes that, from time to time, the market price of its Shares may not fully reflect the underlying value of the Company’s business and future prospects. TOKI believes that, at such times, the repurchase of its Shares for cancellation represents an appropriate use of the Company’s financial resources and will enhance shareholder value.
The Company intends to appoint Leede Jones Gable Inc. as its broker to conduct the NCIB on its behalf. The NCIB is expected to commence on May 25, 2020 and terminate on May 25, 2021, or an earlier date in the event that the number of Shares sought in the NCIB has been repurchased or if the Company feels that it is appropriate. All Shares purchased under the NCIB will be purchased on the open market through the facilities of the Canadian Securities Exchange. All purchases made under the NCIB will be at the prevailing CSE market price for the Shares at the time of purchase. Shares acquired by the Company under the NCIB are being purchased for cancellation.
