Miranda Announces Normal Course Issuer Bid

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Nov. 24, 2010) - Miranda Technologies Inc. (TSX:MT), a worldwide provider of infrastructure, playout and monitoring systems for the broadcast and cable/satellite/IPTV industries, announced today that its Board of Directors has authorized the purchase of up to 1,694,937 of its common shares by way of a normal course issuer bid ("NCIB"). The NCIB will be carried out through the facilities of the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") and is subject to their approval. As of November 19, 2010, the common shares which may be purchased represent approximately 10% of the public float of Miranda's common shares, being 16,949,375 common shares, and approximately 8% of its issued and outstanding common shares, being 21,724,096 common shares.

Miranda thinks its shares may from time to time be trading at attractive levels and believes the purchase of them is both an appropriate use of its available cash and a good way of increasing the equity interest of shareholders. 

Miranda may purchase shares during the period commencing November 26, 2010 and ending November 25, 2011 or on such earlier date as the Company may complete its permitted purchases of shares under the NCIB. The average daily trading volume of the common shares over the most recently completed six (6) calendar months was 22,000 and accordingly, on any trading day the Company is entitled to purchase up to 5,500 common shares. Purchases will be made by Miranda in accordance with applicable regulatory requirements and the price which Miranda will pay for any such common shares will be the market price of such shares at the time of acquisition. Purchased shares will be cancelled.

Directors, senior officers and other insiders of the Company may sell securities of the Corporation during the course of the normal course issuer bid. The benefits to any insider whose shares are purchased would be the same as the benefits available to all other holders whose shares are purchased.

During the period from August 26, 2009 and August 25, 2010 inclusively, the Company purchased 1,124,850 of its outstanding Common Shares, at a weighted average price of $5.03.
