CIBC Announces New Normal Course Issuer Bid

 TORONTO, Aug. 28, 2014 /CNW/ - CIBC (TSX: CM) (NYSE: CM) today announced its  intention to seek Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) approval for a normal course  issuer bid. Purchases of common shares for cancellation will be made subject  to CIBC's ongoing capital requirements. Such purchases will not exceed eight  million shares, or approximately 2% of its outstanding common shares over a 12  month period.  CIBC will file a notice of intention to make a normal course issuer bid with  the TSX and this bid would commence following TSX acceptance of this notice  and continue for up to one year.  Purchases would be made through the facilities of the TSX, alternative  Canadian trading systems or the New York Stock Exchange, in accordance with  applicable regulatory requirements. CIBC intends to periodically establish an  automatic program under which its broker, CIBC World Markets Inc., would  repurchase CIBC shares pursuant to the bid within a defined set of criteria  which CIBC would not vary or suspend.  The price paid for the common shares  will be the market price at the time of the purchase. The common shares  repurchased under the normal course issuer bid will be cancelled.  Between September 9, 2013 and August 26, 2014, CIBC purchased 4.21 million of  its common shares for cancellation at an average price of $91.06 per share  pursuant to its current normal course issuer bid.
