XpresSpa Group Announces Board Authorization
Up to 15 Million Shares of Outstanding Common Stock May Be Repurchased
NEW YORK, August 31, 2021 - XpresSpa Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: XSPA), a travel health and wellness company, today announced that its Board of Directors has authorized a stock repurchase program for up to 15,000,000 shares of its outstanding common stock.
"Our XpresCheck™ COVID-19 testing business continues to grow and perform well. In July, increased testing volumes and improved mix of higher margin rapid tests resulted in higher overall practice fees than in June. Additionally, these activities exclude any testing related to our new CDC relationship or from our El Al Airlines pilot program. We believe launching a stock buyback program reflects our confidence in the long-term prospects of the business and the undervalued price of our stock," said Bruce Bernstein, Chairman of the Board of XpresSpa Group, Inc. “Consistent with our business philosophy, we will continue to evaluate investment opportunities in the business against buying back shares."
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, 2022, unless further extended by the Board of Directors. The repurchase program may also be suspended, modified, or discontinued at any time.
