Local trade conditions have remained in negative territory in April, with the South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s (Sacci’s) Trade Activity Index (TAI) weakening further to 45 from 46 in March. The index has remained below the neutral 50-point level since October 2016. However, the seasonal adjusted TAI improved by two index points to 45. The seasonally adjusted Trade Expectations Index (TEI) weakened further, by two index points, to 49, in April – the first time since April 2016, after recovering to a level of 61, in February, that the seasonally adjusted TEI moved into negative territory. “It appears that peripheral matters to trade were still weighing heavily on trade conditions in April,” said Sacci. Respondents mentioned that extraneous factors such as emigration, political uncertainty, higher unemployment and crime are impeding trade, while uncertain economic and business conditions result in staff retrenchments and less credit availability. Further, large shifts in the currency value made it difficult to conduct international trade. Improved marketing and larger export penetration were positive counter actions.  Recent sales volumes were notably hard-hit as the sales volumes index decreased from 52 in March to 44 in April, while the new orders index dipped by three points to 40. The expectations for sales volumes index remained low at 55 in April, after reaching 73 in February, while the expectations for new orders index also declining further from 53 to 50 in April. The inventory index improved to 47 from a stalled level of 40 in March. The selling price index increased slightly to 62 from 61 while the input price index declined to 62 from 63 in March. Although still high, the price indices could imply that inflation is stable at present. Inflationary expectations indices remained high but reasonably stable, at 69 and 76, respectively, for the selling and input price indices in April.   The employment subindex remained on 48 in April but was lower than the 50 of April 2016. The employment diagnosis in the trade environment for the next six months remains weak and is cause for concern as the employment expectations index stayed put at 43 in April.

CALGARY, Alberta, May 18, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Toscana Energy Income Corporation ("Toscana" or the "Corporation") (TSX:TEI) today announces that a Notice of Intention to commence its Normal Course Issuer Bid (the "Bid") has been approved by its Board of Directors (the "Board") and has been filed with and accepted by the Toronto Stock Exchange. The Corporation believes that the purchase of its shares at recent market prices is a worthwhile investment since, in its view, recent market prices of its shares do not properly reflect the underlying value of its assets and business. Pursuant to the Bid, Toscana is authorized to repurchase up to 609,096 common shares in the capital of Toscana ("Common Shares"), which is equal to 10% of Toscana's public float and approximately 8.4% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares as at May 12, 2017. As at May 12, 2017, there were 7,289,003 Common Shares issued and outstanding. The average daily trading volume of the Corporation’s Common Shares from November 1, 2016 to April 30, 2017 was 11,312 Common Shares ("ADTV"). Accordingly, pursuant to the rules of the Toronto Stock Exchange, the maximum number of Common Shares that the Corporation may repurchase in any one day is 25% of the ADTV, which totals 2,828 Common Shares. Toscana may also make one block purchase per calendar week which exceeds the daily repurchase restriction. The Bid will commence on May 23, 2017 and will terminate on the earlier of: (i) May 22, 2018; and (ii) the date on which the maximum number of Common Shares are purchased pursuant to the Bid. Purchases of Common Shares under the Bid will be effected through the facilities of the Toronto Stock Exchange, other alternative trading platforms or any other exchange recognized or designated by the securities regulatory authorities as a "designated exchange" as such term is defined in Multilateral Instrument 62-104 – Take Over Bids and Issuer Bids, at the market price at the time of purchase. Common Shares purchased pursuant to the Bid will thereafter be cancelled. National Bank Financial Inc. ("National Bank") will be the broker firm responsible for making purchases of Common Shares under the Bid on behalf of Toscana pursuant to an automatic share repurchase plan agreement to be dated as of May 23, 2017 between Toscana and National Bank (the "Agreement"). Concurrent with entering into the Agreement, Toscana provided National Bank with a certificate, executed by an officer of Toscana, confirming that Toscana is aware of the Agreement and that to the best knowledge of such officer, there is no material undisclosed information regarding Toscana. Pursuant to the Agreement, the timing for the purchase of Common Shares, the number of Common Shares purchased and the price payable for the Common Shares will be determined by National Bank in its sole discretion, without consultation with Toscana, having regard to the price limitations and other terms of the Agreement and the rules of the Toronto Stock Exchange.
