ROCKVILLE, Md., Feb. 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capital Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ - CBNK), the holding company for Capital Bank, NA, today announced that its Board of Directors has approved a new stock repurchase program, which authorizes the Company to repurchase up to $7.5 million of its outstanding common stock.
“We believe having the option to repurchase shares offers an effective capital management tool for building long-term shareholder value,” said Ed Barry, CEO of Capital Bancorp, Inc.
The new stock repurchase program replaces and supersedes the previous $5.0 million stock repurchase program approved by the Board in April 2019, which concluded in the fourth quarter of 2020. In connection with the prior stock repurchase program, the Company purchased an aggregate of 304,114 shares of its common stock at an average price of $10.81 per share during the twelve months ended December 31, 2020.
Under the new stock repurchase program, shares of common stock may be repurchased by the Company from time to time in open market or in privately negotiated transactions as permitted under applicable rules and regulations, including Rule 10b-18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The extent to which the Company repurchases its shares and the timing of such repurchases will depend upon market conditions and other corporate considerations. As a result, there can be no assurance as to the exact number of shares, if any, that will be repurchased under the plan. Repurchases may also be made pursuant to a trading plan under Rule 10b5-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, which would permit shares to be repurchased when the Company might otherwise be precluded from doing so because of self-imposed trading blackout periods or other regulatory restrictions.
