NEW YORK, Feb. 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Better Choice Company (OTCQX: BTTR) (“Better Choice”), an animal health and wellness company, today announced commencing a stock repurchase program beginning in the first quarter of 2021.
The Company’s Board of Directors has authorized repurchases of up to $2,000,000 of the Company’s ordinary shares, expiring on December 31, 2021. The timing and actual number of shares repurchased will depend on a variety of factors, including price, general business and market conditions, and alternative investment opportunities. The repurchase program will be executed consistent with the Company’s capital allocation strategy of prioritizing investment to grow the business over the long term.
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 particular number of ordinary shares, and the repurchase program may be suspended or discontinued at any time at the Company’s discretion.
Michael Young, Chairman of Better Choice, stated, “We believe that the current value of Better Choice Company’s stock does not reflect our growth prospects and the value of our proprietary brands and systems. This stock repurchase program provides the Company with an opportunity to provide liquidity to shareholders and increase shareholder value.”
Mr. Young continued, “Due to current market volatility as experienced by companies such as Gamestop (GME) and AMC Entertainment (AMC), and the ramifications this could have on the broader market the Better Choice Board has made the decision to be proactive, in to be advantageously positioned if such unreasonable market opportunities present themselves.”
