On November 3, 2022, Legacy’s Board of Directors unanimously approved a stock repurchase program that will enable the Company to repurchase up to $10,000,000 of its outstanding common stock. The timing and amount of any shares purchased will be determined by the Company’s management based on its evaluation of market conditions and other factors. The repurchase program will be in effect until October 31, 2025.
Duncan Bates, President, and Chief Executive Officer, stated: “Our business continues to perform well despite a challenging macroeconomic environment. We faced slower shipments and production from our Eatonton, GA facility this quarter, but our margins and earnings demonstrate the resiliency of Legacy’s integrated business model. Our backlog remains strong across all manufacturing facilities. The stock repurchase program is an important piece of our capital allocation strategy. We are committed to delivering value to our shareholders. Legacy ended the third quarter in a net cash position providing the flexibility to adopt this program and continue to pursue growth opportunities.”
