"This repurchase program demonstrates the Board of Directors' and senior management's commitment to deploying capital that will create value for shareholders, underscoring our confidence in LCI's long-term growth objectives. Our strong operating cash flows, balance sheet, and borrowing capacity give us the flexibility to return capital to shareholders while making further investments in our business to drive growth and innovation, pursue strategic acquisitions, and maintain appropriate debt levels," said Jason Lippert, LCI Industries' President and Chief Executive Officer.
The timing of stock repurchases and the number of shares will depend upon the market conditions and other factors. Share repurchases, if any, will be made in the open market and in privately negotiated transactions in accordance with applicable securities laws. The stock repurchase program may be modified, suspended, or terminated at any time by the Board of Directors. Repurchases under the stock repurchase program will be funded from the Company's existing cash and cash equivalents, future cash flows, and its existing revolving line of credit.
