Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - April 8, 2024) - WonderFi Technologies Inc. (TSX: WNDR) (OTCQB: WONDF) (the "Company" or "WonderFi"), announces that the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") has accepted its notice of intention to proceed with a normal course issuer bid ("NCIB").

As at March 31, 2024, there were 652,610,303 Common Shares issued and outstanding. Under the NCIB, other than purchases made under block purchase exemptions, WonderFi may purchase up to 257,899 Common Shares on the TSX during any trading day, which represents approximately 25% of the average daily trading volume on the TSX for the most recently completed six calendar months (being 1,031,596 Common Shares) prior to the TSX's acceptance of the notice of the NCIB.

The NCIB will commence on April 10, 2024 and will terminate upon the earliest of (i) April 9, 2025, (ii) the Company purchasing the maximum of 25,126,596 Common Shares, and (iii) the Company terminating the NCIB. Any Common Shares purchased under the NCIB will be cancelled.

Any purchases made under the NCIB will be subject to favourable market conditions at the prevailing market price at the time of acquisition through the facilities of the TSX and alternative Canadian trading systems.

Although the Company presently intends to purchase Common Shares under the NCIB, there can be no assurance that any such purchases will be completed.
