September 16, 2022

TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Further to the announcement by Home Capital Group Inc. (“Home Capital” or the “Company”) (TSX: HCG) on September 14, 2022, the Company announced today that it has taken up 1,547,296 common shares (the “Shares”) at a purchase price of C$28.60 per Share under the Company’s substantial issuer bid (the “Offer”) to repurchase for cancellation up to C$115,000,000 of its Shares.

The Shares to be purchased under the Offer represent approximately 3.87% of the Shares issued and outstanding (undiluted) prior to the take-up of the Shares. After giving effect to the repurchase, the number of issued and outstanding Shares will be 38,397,442 (undiluted). None of the directors or management of the Company tendered any of their Shares pursuant to the Offer.

Payment for the purchased Shares will be effected by Computershare Investor Services Inc. in accordance with the Offer and applicable law.

To assist shareholders in determining the tax consequences of the Offer, Home Capital estimates that for the purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada), the paid-up capital per Share was approximately C$3.15 as at September 15, 2022. The “specified amount” (for purposes of subsection 191(4) of the Income Tax Act (Canada)) is C$28.55.

The full details of the Offer are described in the offer to purchase and issuer bid circular dated August 8, 2022, as supplemented by the notice of change dated August 18, 2022, as well as the related letter of transmittal and notice of guaranteed delivery, copies of which were filed and are available on SEDAR at
