Tompkins Financial Corporation Announces Stock Repurchase Program

Tompkins Financial Corporation (NYSE American:TMP)

Tompkins Financial Corporation announced today that its Board of Directors has authorized a new stock repurchase program of up to 400,000 shares of the Company's outstanding common stock, par value $0.10 per share. This program replaces the Company's existing 400,000 share repurchase program announced on October 22, 2021.

The new stock repurchase program is expected to be completed over the next 24 months. The shares may be repurchased from time to time in open market transactions at prevailing market prices, in privately negotiated transactions, or by other means in accordance with federal securities laws. The actual timing, number and value of shares repurchased under the program will be determined by management at its discretion in connection with its overall capital management strategies and will depend on a number of factors, including the market price of the Company's stock, general market and economic conditions, interest rates, financial forecasts, other strategic uses of capital, and applicable legal requirements. The Company has no obligation to repurchase any shares and may discontinue repurchases at any time.
