GARDENA, Calif., Aug. 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Polar Power, Inc. (POLA), a global provider of prime, backup and solar hybrid DC power solutions, announced that its Board of Directors has authorized the repurchase of up to $500,000 of its outstanding shares of common stock. The repurchase program will expire on February 28, 2020, subject to earlier termination of the program by the Board. As of August 28, 2019, Polar Power had 10,143,158 shares of common stock outstanding.
Repurchases may be made in open market purchases, including through block trades, through privately negotiated transactions, or pursuant to any trading plan that may be adopted by Polar Power in accordance with Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), which would permit common stock to be repurchased when Polar Power might otherwise be precluded from doing so under applicable insider trading laws.
The timing, manner, price and amount of any repurchases will be determined in management’s discretion and the share repurchase program may be suspended, terminated or modified at any time for any reason including market conditions, the cost associated with repurchasing the shares, the availability of alternative investment opportunities, liquidity, the need for capital in Polar Power’s operations and other factors deemed appropriate by management. The repurchase program does not obligate Polar Power to acquire any specific number of shares of common stock, and all open market purchases will be made in accordance with Rule 10b-18 under the Exchange Act, which provides certain restrictions on the method, timing, price and volume of open market stock repurchases.
“We are pleased to announce this share repurchase program that allows us to return value to our stockholders. The adoption of this repurchase program underscores the Board’s confidence in our current and future prospects. At recent market price levels, we believe the repurchase program is an excellent opportunity to buy shares of our common stock at a significant discount to their intrinsic value, which makes the shares an attractive investment,” said Arthur D. Sams, President and Chief Executive Officer of Polar Power. “We will use this tool strategically in our continued effort to maximize value for Polar Power stockholders.”
