Shaw Renews Normal Course Issuer Bid

December 05, 2012 --

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/05/12 -- Shaw Communications Inc. (TSX:SJR.B) (NYSE:SJR) ("Shaw") announced today that it has received approval from the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") to renew its normal course issuer bid to purchase its Class B Non-Voting Participating Shares through the facilities of the TSX for a further one year period. Shaw's renewed normal course issuer bid will expire on December 6, 2013, in accordance with the rules of the TSX.

As approved by the TSX, during the period from December 7, 2012 to December 6, 2013, Shaw is authorized to acquire up to 20,000,000 Class B Non-Voting Shares, representing approximately 5% of the public float of Class B Non-Voting Shares. A total of 422,960,209 Class B Non-Voting Shares of Shaw were issued and outstanding as at November 30, 2012.

Shaw continues to believe that under the right circumstances purchasing of Class B Non-Voting Shares constitutes a desirable use of its free cash flow in the best interests of Shaw and its shareholders and may enhance the value of Class B Non-Voting Participating Shares.

For purposes of the TSX normal course issuer bid rules, Shaw's average daily trading volume ("ADTV") for the past six months is 804,238 Class B Non-Voting Shares. As a result, a maximum of 201,060 Class B Non-Voting Shares (being 25% of the ADTV) may be purchased by Shaw on any one day under the renewed bid, except where purchases are made in accordance with the "block purchase exception" of the TSX rules.

The bid does not apply to the Class A Participating Shares of Shaw.

Shaw did not purchase any shares under its previously approved issuer bid, during the 12 month period commencing December 1, 2011.
