Restaurant Brands International Inc. Announces Adoption of Share Repurchase Authorization

TORONTO, Aug. 31, 2023 /PRNewswire/ – Restaurant Brands International Inc. (“RBI”) (TSX: QSR) (NYSE: QSR) announced today that its Board of Directors has approved a share repurchase authorization (the “Repurchase Authorization”) pursuant to which RBI may purchase up to US$1.0 billion of its common shares over the next 2 years through September 30, 2025. This approval follows the expiration of RBI’s prior 2 year authorization to repurchase up to the same US$1 billion amount of its common shares.

Pursuant to the Repurchase Authorization, and subject to the approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX”), RBI intends to commence a normal course issuer bid (“NCIB”) permitting the purchase for cancellation of common shares of up to 10% of its public float.

Under its last NCIB which commenced on August 17, 2022 and expired on August 16, 2023 (the “2022 NCIB”), RBI previously sought and received approval from the TSX to repurchase up to 30,254,374 common shares (which represented 10% of its public float as of August 17, 2022). Despite this approval, RBI did not repurchase any common shares under the 2022 NCIB.
