Press release dated March 10, 2020, of PCTEL, Inc. announcing the Share Repurchase Program

BLOOMINGDALE, Illinois – March 10, 2020 PCTEL, Inc. (Nasdaq: PCTI) announced that the Board of Directors has reauthorized a share repurchase program pursuant to which the Company may repurchase up to $7.0 million of its common stock through the end of 2020.  

“This repurchase program demonstrates the Board's confidence in our future and our commitment to delivering value to all of our shareholders,” said David Neumann, PCTEL’s Chief Executive Officer. “Our strong cash flow and balance sheet enable us to simultaneously return value to shareholders through our regular quarterly dividend and share repurchases, while at the same time continuing to deploy capital to drive growth over the long term.”

Share repurchases may be made from time to time at prevailing prices in the open market, including pursuant to a Rule 10b5-1 plan, by block repurchases, in private transactions or otherwise. The Company has put in place a plan pursuant to Rule 10b5-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, to facilitate market repurchases. A plan under Rule 10b5-1 allows a company to repurchase shares at times when it might otherwise be prevented from doing so by securities laws or because of self-imposed trading blackout periods. There can be no assurance of how many shares will be repurchased, and the repurchase program and/or Rule 10b5-1 plan may be suspended for periods or discontinued at any time. Share repurchases will be funded with cash on hand.

The Company had approximately 18.7 million shares of common stock outstanding on February 28, 2020.
