ANDOVER, Mass., Feb. 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Byrna Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ: BYRN) ("Byrna") or the "Company") today announced that its Board of Directors has authorized the commencement of purchases of its common stock pursuant to the $30M Repurchase Program (the "Repurchase Program") announced in early December.

Byrna Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ:BYRN) (PRNewsfoto/Byrna Technologies Inc.)
Byrna Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ:BYRN) (PRNewsfoto/Byrna Technologies Inc.)

To date, no stock has been repurchased because the Company has been in a standard blackout period in advance of its earnings release late last week. Bryan Ganz, President and Chief Executive Officer of Byrna, commented, "The Board's approval of the Repurchase Program launch reflects the confidence that the Board and management have in Byrna's operating fundamentals, business opportunities, and growth prospects."

Today the Board approved a written plan pursuant to Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Plan") to begin repurchases of Byrna common stock in the open market. Byrna intends to finance the repurchases using its available cash. Ganz further commented, "With the lifting of the blackout today, we wanted to get a 10b5-1 plan in place promptly, so that we can begin to execute the Repurchase Program. We also wanted to make sure that we are not similarly constrained as the end of the current quarter approaches and a new blackout period begins."

Rule 10b5-1 allows a company to repurchase its shares at times when it otherwise might be prevented from doing so under the insider trading laws or because of self-imposed blackout periods provided, among other considerations, that repurchases are made pursuant to a plan adopted when the company is not aware of material nonpublic information or is not otherwise prohibited from acquiring its own shares. Repurchases under Byrna's Plan will be executed by Raymond James.

The Rule 10b5-1 share purchases are expected to commence this month and continue until April 30, 2022 or until they reach the aggregate limit of $10M set by the Plan approved today, whichever occurs first.

There can be no assurances as to the exact number or aggregate value of shares that will be repurchased by Byrna. Subject to the rules and regulations of Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and other applicable laws and Exchange rules, the Repurchase Program and the Plan may be suspended or discontinued at any time in Byrna's discretion.
