Item 8.01. Other Events.
 
On November 30, 2020, Oxford Immunotec Global PLC, or the Company, announced its intention to resume its share repurchase program. In April 2020, in response to uncertainties surrounding disruption from the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company temporarily suspended its share repurchase program. Under the program, the Company may repurchase shares from time to time at prevailing market prices, through open market or privately negotiated transactions, depending upon market conditions, and in accordance with guidelines specified under Rule 10b5-1 and within the parameters of Rule 10b-18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
 
As previously disclosed, the Company’s Board of Directors authorized a share repurchase program of up to $100 million of its ordinary shares in the aggregate (including commissions) at its Annual General Meeting held on June 18, 2019. The Company began repurchasing shares in September 2019. As of the date of this report, $85.3 million of ordinary shares remain eligible for repurchase. The share repurchase program may be suspended, modified or terminated at any time. The Company has no obligation to repurchase any amount of its ordinary shares under the program. Unless terminated by the Company’s Board of Directors, the share repurchase program will be valid for up to five years from the date of inception of the program.
