Tucows Inc. (USA) (NASDAQ:TCX) announced that its Board of Directors has approved a stock buyback program to repurchase from time to time up to $40 million of its common stock in the open market.

The new $40 million buyback program will commence February 10, 2016 and will terminate on or before February 9, 2017. The Company’s previous buyback program, which commenced February 16, 2015 and was scheduled to end on or before February 15, 2016, has been terminated as the Company has repurchased approximately $20 million of its common stock, the maximum dollar amount permitted under that program.

Purchases for the new $40 million buyback program will be made exclusively through the facilities of the NASDAQ Capital Market.

All shares purchased by Tucows under the stock buyback program will be retired and returned to treasury.

The timing and exact number of common shares purchased will be at Tucows’ discretion and will depend on available cash and market conditions. Tucows may suspend or discontinue the repurchases at any time, including in the event Tucows would be deemed to be making an acquisition of its own shares under Rule 13e-3 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Subject to applicable securities laws and stock exchange rules, all purchases will occur through the open market and may be in large block purchases. Tucows does not intend to purchase its shares from its management team or other insiders. (Original Source)
