LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Membership Collective Group Inc. (NYSE: MCG) (“MCG,” “Company,” “we” or “our”), a global membership platform of physical and digital spaces that connects a vibrant, diverse, and global group of members, today announced that its board of directors and a relevant sub-committee thereof authorized a stock repurchase program to repurchase up to USD $50 million of the Company’s Class A common stock.
Under the stock repurchase program, the Company is authorized to repurchase from time to time shares of its outstanding Class A common stock on the open market or in privately negotiated transactions in the United States.
The timing and amount of stock repurchases will depend on a variety of factors, including market conditions as well as corporate and regulatory considerations. The stock repurchase program may be suspended, modified or discontinued at any time and the Company has no obligation to repurchase any amount of its common stock under the program. The Company intends to make all repurchases in accordance with applicable federal securities laws, including Rule 10b-18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”), as amended. MCG may elect to conduct certain of these repurchases in connection with a trading plan adopted pursuant to Rule 10b5-1 under the Exchange Act.
Ron Burkle, Executive Chairman of the Board, said: “This step reflects our belief in the favorable long-term opportunity ahead, given the company’s scale and pace of international growth.
With an accelerated pipeline of nine new Soho House openings this year and eight to ten per year thereafter, together with an increased demand for memberships, expansion into new markets and positive momentum post Covid, we remain increasingly confident in the future performance of MCG.”
