Target Hospitality Corp. ("Target Hospitality" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: TH), the largest provider of vertically-integrated specialty rental accommodations with premium catering and value-added hospitality services in the U.S., today announced that its Board of Directors has authorized a stock repurchase program of up to $75 million. The authorization of the repurchase program is strategically consistent with the Company's capital allocation priorities to simultaneously invest in growth, maintain a strong balance sheet, and deploy capital into value enhancing initiatives.
Stephen Robertson, Chairman of Target Hospitality, stated, "The stock repurchase authorization reinforces the Board of Directors' complete confidence in the strength and resilience of our business model as well as our long-term growth prospects. Given our robust balance sheet and strong cash flow generation, the flexibility to opportunistically repurchase shares while concurrently executing our growth plan underscores our commitment to a shareholder enhancing, returns-focused capital allocation strategy. We look forward to executing this program while continuing to invest in growth ? whether they be new builds, expansions, or acquisitions - to generate superior returns for our stockholders."
Under the stock repurchase program, the Company may purchase shares of its common stock through various means, including open market transactions, block purchases, privately negotiated transactions or otherwise in accordance with applicable federal securities laws, including Rule 10b-18 and Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The timing and amount of any repurchases under this program will be determined by the Company's management at its discretion based on a variety of factors, including, but not limited to, trading volume and market price of Company's common stock, corporate considerations, Company's working capital and investment requirements, general market and economic conditions, and legal requirements. The program may be modified, discontinued or suspended at any time without prior notice. The Company anticipates funding for this program to come from available sources of liquidity, including cash on hand and future cash flow.
