TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / March 13, 2019 / Mongolia Growth Group Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX-V: YAK), announced today that TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") has accepted a Notice of Intention to renews its normal course issuer bid to purchase outstanding common shares of the Company on the open market in accordance with the policies of the TSXV.
Pursuant to the NCIB, (the "Bid") the Company may acquire up to 2,550,000 common shares (representing up to approximately 7.7 % of the 33,136,999 common shares of the Company currently issued and outstanding, or approximately 9.9% of the 25,860,049 common shares constituting the Company's current Public Float (as that term is defined in the policies of the Exchange) from time to time during the next 12 months. In accordance with the Policies of the Exchange, the maximum number of common shares that may be purchased under the Bid in any 30-day period may not exceed 2% of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company when aggregated with all other common shares purchased under the Bid in the preceding 30 days.
The Company is undertaking the Bid because, in the opinion of its board of directors, the market price of its common shares, from time to time, may not fully reflect the underlying value of its operations and future growth prospects. The Company believes that in such circumstances, the purchase of the common shares of the Company may represent an appropriate and desirable use of the Company's funds and further enhance market stability.
The Company may, subject to market conditions, sell one or more of its investment properties to finance purchases under the Bid from time to time.
From March 12, 2018 to March 11, 2019, the Company purchased 408,000 of its shares at an average price of $0.30 under its most recently expired NCIB.

The Bid will commence on or about March 13, 2019 and the Bid will end no later than March 12, 2020.
