Under the NCIB, Héroux-Devtek has the right to purchase for cancellation, from May 25, 2021 to May 24, 2022, a maximum of 2,412,279 common shares, representing, as of May 12, 2021, 10% of the public float of 24,122,794 common shares.

The actual number of shares that may be purchased and the timing of any such purchases will be determined by Héroux-Devtek. Any purchases made by Héroux- Devtek pursuant to the NCIB will be made in accordance with the rules and policies of the TSX.

"We believe that the NCIB is a flexible means to optimize our capital allocation and provide immediate value for shareholders while not compromising our position for future growth initiatives," said Mr. Martin Brassard, President and Chief Executive Officer of Héroux-Devtek.

During the most recently completed six months, the average daily trading volume for the common shares of Héroux-Devtek on the TSX was 50,071 shares.
