VivoPower declares Capital Management Strategy including Stock Buyback Program of up to US$5 million

LONDON, April 03, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VivoPower International PLC (NASDAQ: VVPR, the “Company”, "VivoPower") today announced that its Board of Directors (the "Board") has authorized a capital management strategy including a stock buyback program (the "Stock Buyback Program") pursuant to which the Company is authorized to purchase up to US$5 million of the Company’s outstanding common stock. The Stock Buyback Program has an expiration date of April 3, 2025 and may be suspended, terminated, amended or modified by the Board at any time without prior notice at the Board’s discretion.

The Stock Buyback Program is expected to be funded using the Company’s proceeds from realisation of business and asset divestitures including spin-offs and carve-outs. Repurchases under the Stock Buyback Program may be made, from time to time, in amounts and at prices the Company deems appropriate. The Stock Buyback Program does not obligate the Company to purchase any shares of its common stock. Repurchases by the Company under the Stock Buyback Program will be subject to general market and economic conditions, applicable legal and regulatory requirements, shareholder approval, availability of distributable profits and other considerations, including alternate uses of capital and the Company’s financial performance. Repurchases may be executed through the open market or in privately negotiated transactions, including under Rule 10b5-1 plans.
