PCTEL Announces Termination of Share Repurchase Program


BLOOMINGDALE, Illinois – April 2, 2020 PCTEL, Inc. (Nasdaq: PCTI) announced that the Board of Directors has terminated the Company’s previously announced share repurchase program.  The Board of Directors does not presently intend to modify the Company’s dividend policy.


“Given the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 virus and its impact on economic and market conditions, the Board determined that it is prudent to terminate the share repurchase program,” said David Neumann, PCTEL’s Chief Executive Officer. “Maintaining our strong balance sheet will allow PCTEL flexibility to address the unique and evolving challenges presented by the COVID-19 situation.”


In connection with the termination of the share repurchase program, the Company has also terminated a plan pursuant to Rule 10b5-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, that was in place to facilitate market repurchases.


Under the now terminated share repurchase program, the Company repurchased approximately 375,000 shares of common stock for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $2.0 million.  Following these repurchases, the Company had approximately 18.5 million shares of common stock outstanding.
