Friedman Industries, Incorporated Announces Share Repurchase Program and Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2020 Results

 

Friedman Industries, Incorporated announced today a share repurchase program authorized by the Board of Directors on June 25, 2020 under which the Company may repurchase up to 1,062,067 shares of the Company’s outstanding common stock through June 30, 2023, which equates to 15% of the Company’s outstanding shares of common stock as of June 29, 2020.

 

Repurchases under the program may be made from time to time at the Company’s discretion and may be made in open market transactions, through block trades, in privately negotiated transactions and pursuant to any trading plan that may be adopted by the Company’s management in accordance with Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise. The timing and actual number of shares repurchased pursuant to the program will depend on a variety of factors including price, corporate and regulatory requirements, market conditions and other corporate liquidity requirements and priorities. The repurchase program does not obligate the Company to acquire a specific dollar amount or number of shares and may be modified, suspended or discontinued at any time.

 

Michael Taylor, Chairman of the Board and President and CEO of the Company, remarked, “The Board’s approval of this program reflects our confidence in the Company’s future. Repurchasing stock is one means of underscoring our commitment to enhancing stockholder value.”
