Blackboxstocks Announces Stock Repurchase Program of up to $2.5 Million
DALLAS, TX – January 10, 2021– Blackboxstocks Inc. (NASDAQ: BLBX) (“Blackbox”), a financial technology and social media hybrid platform offering real-time proprietary analytics for stock and options traders of all levels, today announced that the Company’s Board of Directors has approved a stock repurchase program for up to $2.5 million of the Company’s common stock.
The repurchase plan will expire on December 31, 2022. The timing and actual number of shares repurchased will depend on a variety of factors including but not limited to share price, trading volume, general business and market conditions as well as other potential investment opportunities. The repurchase program will be executed consistent with the Company’s capital allocation strategy, which will continue to prioritize aggressive investments to grow the business.
“This stock repurchase program demonstrates management’s confidence in our business prospects and enables us to purchase shares at what we believe to be a significant discount to their intrinsic value,” said Robert Winspear, Chief Financial Officer of Blackboxstocks. “We believe we can leverage the strength of our balance sheet to execute this plan without impeding any of our growth initiatives.”
Under the repurchase program, repurchases can be made from time to time using a variety of methods, including open market purchases, all in compliance with the rules of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission and other applicable legal requirements.
The repurchase program does not obligate the Company to acquire any specific amount of the Company’s common stock, and may be suspended, modified or discontinued at any time at the Company’s discretion.
