Boston Omaha Corporation (NASDAQ: BOMN) (“Boston Omaha” or the “Company”), today announced that its Board of Directors (the “Board”) approved a share repurchase program under which the Company can repurchase up to $20,000,000 of its Class A common stock over a one year period ending June 30, 2021 through open market purchases, privately-negotiated transactions, or otherwise in compliance with Rule 10b-18 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
The Board also authorized the Company to establish “Rule 10b5-1 trading plans” for these share repurchases. Rule 10b5-1 trading plans allow companies to repurchase shares at times when they might otherwise be prevented from doing so by securities laws or because of self-imposed trading blackout periods. Under any Rule 10b5-1 trading plan the Company might adopt, the Company’s third-party broker, subject to Securities and Exchange Commission regulations regarding certain price, market, volume and timing constraints, would have authority to purchase the Company’s Class A common stock in accordance with the terms of the plan.
The actual timing, number and value of shares repurchased under the stock repurchase program will depend on a number of factors, including constraints specified in any Rule 10b5-1 trading plans, price, general business and market conditions, and alternative investment opportunities. The share buyback program does not obligate the Company to acquire any specific number of shares in any period, and may be expanded, extended, modified or discontinued at any time.
