VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - May 5, 2017) - TELUS Corporation (TSX:T)(NYSE:TU) has been notified of an unsolicited mini-tender offer made by TRC Capital Corporation to purchase up to 3 million TELUS common shares - or approximately 0.51% of TELUS' outstanding common shares - at a price of $43.50 per share. TELUS does not endorse this unsolicited offer, has no association with TRC Capital or its offer, and recommends that shareholders do not tender their shares to the offer. TELUS cautions shareholders that the mini-tender offer has been made at a price below market price for TELUS shares. The offer represents a discount of 4.52% on the TSX closing price and 4.58% on the NYSE closing price for TELUS common shares on May 2, 2017, the last trading day before the mini-tender offer was commenced. According to TRC Capital's offer documents, TELUS shareholders who have tendered their shares can withdraw their shares at any time before 12:01 am Eastern time on June 2, 2017 by following the procedures described in the offer documents. TRC Capital has made similar unsolicited mini-tender offers for shares of other public companies in Canada and elsewhere.
