">CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - April 29, 2013) - Computer Modelling Group Ltd. (CMG.TO) ("CMG" or the "Company") today announced that the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") has accepted CMG's Notice of Intention to make a Normal Course Issuer Bid (the "Bid") through the facilities of the TSX. The Bid will permit the Company to purchase for cancellation up to 3,538,439 Common Shares of the Company, representing approximately 10% of CMG's public float, which was 35,384,391 at April 26, 2013. As at April 26, 2013 CMG's issued and outstanding shares were 38,147,352 Common Shares.
Purchases pursuant to the Bid may commence on May 1, 2013 and will terminate on April 30, 2014 or such earlier time as the Bid is completed or terminated at the option of CMG. The price which CMG will pay for any shares purchased will be the prevailing market price of the Common Shares on the TSX at the time of such purchase. The actual number of shares that may be purchased for cancellation and the timing of any such purchases will be at the discretion of CMG, subject to a maximum daily purchase limit of 12,621 shares, which equals 25% of CMG's average daily trading volume for the six months prior to April 26, 2013, other than block purchase exceptions. The average daily trading volume for such period was 50,482.
CMG believes that, from time to time, the market prices of its Common Shares may not fully reflect the underlying value of its assets and business and that, at such times, the purchase of shares would be in the best interests of CMG.

In addition, the purchase of shares by the Company may increase liquidity of the Common Shares.
Under its most recent normal course issuer bid which commenced on April 18, 2012 and expired on April 17, 2013, CMG repurchased 90,729 Common Shares at an average price of $17.00. These Common Shares were acquired through the facilities of the TSX.
