HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Expro Group Holdings N.V. (NYSE: XPRO) has announced that the Company’s Board of Directors has authorized a stock repurchase program, under which the Company may repurchase up to an aggregate of $50 million of its outstanding common stock until November 24, 2023 (the “Stock Repurchase Program”) in compliance with Rule 10b-18 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Under the Stock Repurchase Program, the Company may repurchase shares of the Company’s common stock in open market purchases, in privately negotiated transactions or otherwise. The Stock Repurchase Program will be utilized at management’s discretion and in accordance with federal securities laws. The timing and actual numbers of shares repurchased, if any, will depend on a variety of factors including price, corporate requirements, the constraints specified in the Stock Repurchase Program along with general business and market conditions. The Stock Repurchase Program does not obligate the Company to repurchase any particular amount of common stock, and it could be modified, suspended or discontinued at any time.
“We view the repurchase of our shares as an attractive and prudent use of our capital that is in the best interests of our shareholders. With a debt-free balance sheet, ample available liquidity, strong signals of a multi-year energy services recovery, and an expectation that the Company will be cash generative, the Stock Repurchase Program approved by Expro’s Board of Directors allows us to opportunistically increase shareholder value, while maintaining sufficient cash resources to fund our business needs,” said Michael Jardon, Expro’s Chief Executive Officer.
