The Company today also announced that the Board approved the Company’s eighth stock repurchase program, which authorizes the repurchase of up to 588,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, or approximately 5% of currently outstanding shares, over a one-year period, through open market purchases, privately-negotiated transactions, block purchases or otherwise, in accordance with federal securities laws and regulations, including Rule 10b-18 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as applicable. The new stock repurchase program will commence upon completion of the Company’s seventh stock repurchase program, which will expire on April 21, 2024, or earlier if all the shares have been repurchased.
