Spok Authorizes New $10 Million Stock Repurchase Program

SPRINGFIELD, Va.–(August 6, 2018)–Spok Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: SPOK), a global leader in healthcare communications, today announced that its Board of Directors has authorized the repurchase of up to $10 million of the Company’s common stock on the open market or in privately negotiated transactions. The new program is expected to be funded from Spok’s cash on hand and is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s earnings.

“Today’s announcement reflects our commitment to disciplined capital management and the desire to balance investments in our businesses to generate profitable growth while at the same time returning capital to shareholders in the form of stock repurchases and dividends,” said Vincent D. Kelly, president and chief executive officer. “Our stock repurchase program helps us deliver on that commitment while providing flexibility for the future.”

The timing and the amount of any repurchases of common stock will be determined by Spok’s board based on its evaluation of market conditions and other factors. Repurchases of common stock will be made under a Rule 10b5-1 plan, which would permit common stock to be repurchased when the Company might otherwise be precluded from doing so under insider trading laws. The repurchase program may be suspended or discontinued at any time. Any repurchased common stock will be available for use in connection with the Company’s stock plans and for other corporate purposes.
