LAVAL, QC , June 17, 2019 /CNW/ - Crescita Therapeutics Inc. (CTX.TO) (OTC US: CRRTF) ("Crescita" or the "Company"), a Canadian commercial dermatology company with a portfolio of non-prescription skincare products and prescription drug products for the treatment and care of skin conditions, diseases and their symptoms, announced today that it intends to make a normal course issuer bid ("NCIB") for a portion of its common shares ("Common Shares") as appropriate opportunities arise from time to time. The Company's normal course issuer bid, which is expected to be for up to 1,000,000 common shares, or approximately 6% of its public float, will be made in accordance with the requirements of the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") and remains subject to TSX approval. Further details regarding the NCIB will be provided following TSX approval. The Company believes that purchases of Common Shares at prices below the Company's view of its intrinsic value are in the best interests of the Company and a desirable use of the Company's capital.
