SAN JOSE, Calif., May 29, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ubiquiti Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq:UBNT) ("Ubiquiti"), a next-generation communications technology company, today announced that its Board of Directors has authorized the company to repurchase up to $75 million shares of its common stock. We expect the share repurchase program will commence Monday, June 2, 2014.
"Given our confidence in our long-term growth prospects and technology platforms, we believe that our shares are undervalued," said Craig Foster, Chief Financial Officer. "We have been profitable every quarter since our launch, and have experienced significant revenue growth over the past six quarters. Our healthy balance sheet and expected future cash flows provide us the opportunity to enhance shareholder value through share repurchases while continuing to invest in future growth."
The company is authorized to repurchase shares of its outstanding common stock in accordance with applicable laws and guidelines, including those under Rule 10b-18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and under a Rule 10b5-1 plan. The timing and amount of share repurchases will be determined by the company's management based upon its evaluation of market conditions and other factors. The share repurchase program does not obligate the company to acquire any particular number of shares, and may be discontinued at any time.
The share repurchase program will be funded primarily using proceeds from the company's existing credit facility.
This press release is neither an offer to purchase nor a solicitation of an offer to sell any securities.
