Alta Equipment Group Inc. Announces Stock Repurchase Program

03/04/2020

LIVONIA, Mich. --(BUSINESS WIRE)--  Alta Equipment Group Inc. (NYSE: ALTG) today announced that its Board of Directors has authorized a stock repurchase program under which the Company can repurchase up to $10 million of the currently outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock through open market purchases, privately-negotiated transactions, or otherwise in compliance with Rule 10b-18 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

The Board also authorized the Company to establish “Rule 10b5-1 trading plans.” Rule 10b5-1 trading plans allow companies to repurchase shares at times when they might otherwise be prevented from doing so by securities laws or because of self-imposed trading blackout periods. Under any Rule 10b5-1 trading plan the Company might adopt, the Company’s third-party broker, subject to Securities and Exchange Commission regulations regarding certain price, market, volume and timing constraints, would have authority to purchase the Company’s common stock in accordance with the terms of the plan.

Ryan Greenawalt , Alta’s Chief Executive Officer, stated, “The stock repurchase program reflects our confidence in the strength of our balance sheet, quality of our assets and our ongoing ability to generate free cash flow. At current market price levels, we believe the repurchase program is an excellent opportunity to buy our common shares at a significant discount to their intrinsic value and are an attractive investment. Our overall financial position, as well as our cash flow from operations, will support this buyback program and continue forward with our 2020-2021 operating plans.”

The actual timing, number and value of shares repurchased under the stock repurchase program will depend on a number of factors, including constraints specified in any Rule 10b5-1 trading plans, price, general business and market conditions, and alternative investment opportunities. The share buyback program does not obligate the Company to acquire any specific number of shares in any period, and may be expanded, extended, modified or discontinued at any time. Payment for shares repurchased under the program will be funded using the Company's cash on hand.
