Terra Firma Capital Corporation Announces Amendment to Normal Course Issuer Bid

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - July 4, 2017) - Terra Firma Capital Corporation (TSX VENTURE:TII) ("Terra Firma" or the "Company"), a real estate finance company, announces acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSX-V") of an amendment to the Company's normal course issuer bid ("NCIB"). The amendment has increased the maximum number of common shares the Company may acquire under the NCIB by an additional 2,861,119 common shares of its capital stock.

The TSX-V had previously approved purchases under the NCIB of up to an aggregate of 1,907,413 common shares. As of June 30, 2017, the Company had acquired a total of 1,738,000 common shares under the NCIB since it began on November 4, 2016. The amendment to the NCIB reflects the continued belief of the Company's Board of Directors that the market price of the common shares may not reflect their underlying value and that the proposed purchases continue to be in the best interests of the Company and a desirable use of corporate funds.

Other than the increase to the maximum number of common shares which may be acquired under the NCIB, no further amendments were made. The duration of the NCIB remains unchanged and will conclude on the earlier of (i) November 3, 2017, (ii) the date on which the Company has purchased the maximum number of common shares to be acquired pursuant to the NCIB, or (iii) the Company providing a notice of termination to the TSX-V. For further details regarding the NCIB, please refer to the prior news release dated October 31, 2016 and posted on www.sedar.com.
