NASHVILLE, Tenn., Sept. 06, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CapStar Financial Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) (CSTR) announced today that its board of directors has authorized the expansion of the Company’s existing stock repurchase program to allow for the repurchase of additional shares of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock. Under the expansion, the amount of common stock the Company is authorized to repurchase has been increased from approximately $2.2 million, the amount remaining in the existing stock repurchase program, to $11 million. The Company had repurchased approximately $5.8 million of shares under the existing stock repurchase program.
Repurchases of the Company’s common stock will continue to be made in accordance with applicable laws and may be made from time to time in the open market, through privately negotiated transactions or otherwise. The repurchase program will remain in effect until the maximum authorized dollar amount of shares of common stock has been repurchased. The Company intends to fund the expanded repurchase program with a combination of cash on hand and cash generated from operations.
The share repurchase program may be extended, modified, amended, suspended or discontinued at any time at the Company’s discretion and does not commit the Company to repurchase shares of its common stock. The actual timing of any repurchases and the number and price of the shares to be repurchased under the program will be determined by the Company at its discretion and will depend on a number of factors, including the performance of the Company’s share price, the Company’s ongoing capital planning considerations, general market and other conditions, applicable legal requirements and compliance with the terms of the Company’s outstanding indebtedness.
Additionally, the Company’s board of directors authorized the Company to repurchase shares in privately-negotiated transactions with directors, officers and shareholders of the Company.
