Grey Horse Corporation: Normal Course Issuer Bid

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 15, 2008) - Grey Horse Corporation ("Grey Horse")(TSX:GHC) announced today that it has filed with the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") a notice of its intention to amend the terms of its normal course issuer bid (the "NCIB") for its common shares ("Common Shares") through the facilities of the TSX (the "Amended Notice") in order to increase the maximum number of Common Shares that may be purchased pursuant to the NCIB by 116,598 Common Shares.

The Amended Notice provides that Grey Horse may, during the twelve-month period which commenced on January 21, 2008 and will end on January 20, 2009, purchase on the TSX up to 450,359 Common Shares, being approximately 10% of the "public float" (as defined in the policies of the TSX) on January 7, 2008, the date that the original Notice of Intention to make a Normal Course Issuer Bid was filed with the TSX. The price that Grey Horse will pay for any such Common Shares will be the market price at the time of acquisitions and any Common Shares purchased under the NCIB will be cancelled. The actual number of Common Shares that may be purchased and the timing of any such purchase will be determined by Grey Horse. As of May 20, 2008, 333,700 Common Shares had been purchased under the NCIB at an average price of $8.02 per share.

Grey Horse considers the filing of the Amended Notice to be in the best interests of the Corporation and its shareholders. Grey Horse believes that, from time to time, the market price of its Common Shares may not fully reflect the underlying value of its business and its future business prospects. Grey Horse believes that, in such circumstances, the outstanding Common Shares represented an attractive investment for Grey Horse, since a portion of the Corporation's excess cash generated on an annual basis can be invested for an attractive risk adjusted return on capital through the issuer bid.
