Sonos, Inc. (Nasdaq: SONO) today announced that its Board of Directors has authorized a common stock repurchase program of up to $50 million.
Patrick Spence, Sonos CEO, commented, “This share repurchase program reflects our confidence in Sonos’ long-term growth potential. We see tremendous value in our stock, and our strong balance sheet enables us to implement this new repurchase program while continuing to invest in our long-term roadmap and maintaining our flexibility to pursue new strategic opportunities.”
Under the repurchase program, Sonos may purchase shares of common stock on a discretionary basis from time to time through open market repurchases, privately negotiated transactions or other means, including through Rule 10b5-1 trading plans or through the use of other techniques such as accelerated share repurchases. The timing and number of shares repurchased will depend on a variety of factors, including stock price, trading volume, and general business and market conditions. The repurchase program has no time limit, does not obligate Sonos to acquire any particular amount of common stock and may be modified, suspended or discontinued at any time at the company’s discretion.
Repurchases under this program will be funded from the company’s existing cash and cash equivalents or future cash flow. As of June 29, 2019, Sonos had net cash (total cash and cash equivalents less debt) of $298.5 million. Sonos had approximately 106.3 million shares of common stock outstanding as of July 27, 2019.
