XpresSpa Group, Inc. Announces 10 Million Share Increase in Stock Repurchase Program


NEW YORK, May 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- XpresSpa Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: XSPA), a travel health and wellness company, today announced that its Board of Directors has authorized a 10 million share increase to its existing stock repurchase program and to extend it through September 15, 2023.

The original stock repurchase program, announced in August 2021, was for 15 million shares, and there were approximately 3.2 million shares remaining under that original authorization as of the date of such increase, bringing the current authorization to approximately 13.2 million shares. Since initiating the stock repurchase plan on August 31, 2021, the Company has repurchased approximately 11.8 million shares through March 31, 2022 for total consideration of approximately $18.9 million.

Bruce Bernstein, Chairman of the Board of XpresSpa Group, Inc., stated, “Our balance sheet strength positions us well to execute on the expanded stock repurchase program while we invest in the continued growth of the Company. The expansion of this authorization also further validates our belief that our stock is substantially undervalued.”

The shares may be repurchased on the open market, in privately negotiated transactions, or otherwise in accordance with applicable federal securities laws. The specific timing and amount of future repurchases will be determined by market conditions, cash flow requirements, securities law limitations, and other factors. Repurchases may continue from time to time, as conditions permit, until the number of shares authorized to be repurchased have been acquired, or until the authorization to repurchase is terminated or expires, whichever occurs first.

The share repurchase authorization will be used at management’s discretion and will expire on September 15, 2023, unless further extended by the Board of Directors. The repurchase program may also be suspended, modified, or discontinued at any time.
