Fluent Announces Approval of Stock Repurchase Program

NEW YORK, Nov. 19, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fluent, Inc. (FLNT), a leading data-driven performance marketing company, announced today that its Board of Directors approved a stock repurchase program. The program authorizes the repurchase of up to $5 million of shares of the Company’s common stock.

“This stock repurchase program reflects the continued confidence we have in the fundamentals and long-term prospects of our business, further supported by improvements we have seen in our core commercial trending following a challenging third quarter,” stated Ryan Schulke, Fluent’s Chief Executive Officer. “Since the spin-off in the first quarter of 2018, our capital allocation priorities have focused on reducing debt, providing flexibility for internal growth initiatives and funding acquisition opportunities. However, we continually review opportunities to effectively deploy capital and believe the Company’s shares represent an attractive investment opportunity to enhance shareholder value.”

The repurchases will be made from time to time in open market transactions at prevailing market prices or in negotiated transactions off the market.
