Laser Photonics Board of Directors Authorizes 2 Million Share Stock Repurchase Program
ORLANDO, FL / ACCESSWIRE / January 11, 2023 / Laser Photonics Corporation (NASDAQ:LASE), (“LPC”), a leading global industrial developer of CleanTech laser systems for laser cleaning and other materials applications, announced that its Board of Directors authorized a share stock repurchase program permitting the Company to purchase up to an aggregate of 2 million shares of common stock.
“Since raising approximately $12 million in net proceeds from our IPO last October, our financial performance and fundamentals have steadily improved, while our stock price has not reflected this performance,” said Wayne Tupuola, chief executive officer. “With approximately $1.50 per share in cash*, no debt and profits, we believe the stock is significantly undervalued. Given this gap in perception, our board of directors has approved a 2 million share buyback.”
Purchases made under the program will be made from time to time, at the Company’s discretion, in the open market, through privately negotiated transactions or through other manners as permitted by federal securities laws. The timing, manner, price and amount of any repurchases will be determined by the Company and will be subject to economic and market conditions, stock price, applicable legal requirements and other factors.
*Based on post-IPO common stock outstanding of approximately 7.9 million
