LSI Industries Announces $15 Million Share Repurchase Program


LSI Industries Inc. (NASDAQ: LYTS, "LSI" or the "Company") a leading U.S. based manufacturer of indoor/outdoor lighting and display solutions, announced today that its Board of Directors authorized a new share repurchase program under which the Company may repurchase up to $15 million of its outstanding shares of common stock in the open market, in accordance with all applicable securities laws and regulations, including Rule 10b-18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The Company's decision to repurchase its shares, as well as the timing of such repurchases, will depend on a variety of factors, including the ongoing assessment of the Company's capital needs, the market price of the Company's common stock, general market conditions and other corporate considerations, as determined by management. The repurchase program may be suspended or discontinued at any time.

"LSI is committed to a balanced capital allocation strategy designed to maximize total shareholder returns," stated James A. Clark, President, and Chief Executive Officer of LSI. "The steadily improved performance of our business, coupled with a favorable multi-year outlook for non-residential construction, and ongoing investment by retail customers to support evolving consumer buying habits and in-store experience, provides LSI an opportunity to further balance our capital allocation model."

"We believe our capital allocation strategy should prioritize a combination of organic growth investments, the acquisition of complementary assets in key target markets and an opportunistic return of capital program. The approval by our Board of Directors of a new share repurchase authorization demonstrates confidence in our business, while providing management with another tool to optimize value creation."
