LONDON, October 28, 2011 -
TFG today announces that it will continue its share repurchase program. The Board of TFG continues to be confident in the long-term prospects of TFG. The Board also believes that the purchase of shares in the market may at appropriate price levels below Net Asset Value represent an attractive use of TFG’s excess cash and an efficient means to return cash to its shareholders.
The updated share repurchase program will commence on November 1, 2011 and will continue for a period of up to October 31, 2012, until 5% of the Company’s outstanding shares have been repurchased under the updated program or until terminated by the Board. Other than as described below, the updated share repurchase program shall be conducted on the same terms as the previously announced program on October 1, 2010. Accordingly, the maximum price to be paid per share under the share repurchase program shall not exceed the higher of the price of the last independent trade and the highest current independent bid on Eurolist by NYSE Euronext Amsterdam. TFG’s maximum daily trading volume for such purchases shall be based on the average daily volume traded in September 2011 and shall be fixed for the duration of the program.
