Item 8.01 Other Events.


On September 10, 2020, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of the Company authorized the Company to purchase up to 1,000,000 shares of common stock of the Company from time to time pursuant to a share repurchase program, subject to the total expenditure for the purchase of shares under the share repurchase program not exceeding $5,000,000, exclusive of any fees, commissions and other expenses related to such repurchases.


Under the share repurchase program, the Company may repurchase its common stock from time to time, in amounts, at prices, and at such times as the Company deems appropriate, subject to market conditions, legal requirements and other considerations. The Company’s repurchases may be executed using open market purchases, unsolicited or solicited privately negotiated transactions or other transactions, and may be effected pursuant to trading plans intended to qualify under Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.





The share repurchase program does not obligate the Company to repurchase any specific number of shares and may be suspended, modified or terminated at any time without prior notice. The share repurchase program does not contain a time limitation during which repurchases are permitted to occur. The Company cannot predict when or if it will repurchase any shares of common stock as such share repurchase program will depend on a number of factors, including constraints specified in any Rule 10b5-1 trading plans, price, general business and market conditions and alternative investment opportunities.


The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 provides a safe harbor for forward-looking statements made by or on behalf of the Company.

Therefore, actual outcomes and results may differ materially from what is expressed or forecasted in or suggested by such forward-looking statements. All forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this report. All subsequent written and oral forward-looking statements attributable to the Company or any person acting on behalf of the Company are qualified by the cautionary statements in this section.
