Evercel Announces $20 Million Share Repurchase Program

MIAMI, Sept. 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Evercel, Inc. [OTC Pink: EVRC] (the “Company”) today announced that its Board of Directors has approved a new share repurchase authorization of up to $20 million of the Company’s common stock. Under this program, the Company may repurchase outstanding shares of its common stock at times and prices considered to be in the best interest of the Company and its stockholders.

“Today’s announcement reflects our confidence in the cash flow we expect from our investments, which are valuable now and we believe will be more so in the future,” said Daniel Allen, Chief Executive Officer of Evercel. “While we will still continue to pursue value creating investments, the Board believes there is significant embedded value in our assets that is yet to be realized by the market. Therefore, returning capital to shareholders through a repurchase program of this size is an attractive use of capital at this time.”

The share repurchase authorization is effective starting October 30th and, unless earlier terminated by our Board of Directors, is expected to be completed within two years thereafter. Repurchases will be funded by a combination of cash on hand, dividends from the Company’s investments and cash received from the sale of any investments. The share repurchase authorization does not obligate the Company to repurchase any specific number of shares, or any shares at all, and may be suspended, modified or terminated at any time. Share repurchases, which are subject to market conditions, other business considerations and applicable legal requirements, may be made in the open market, in privately negotiated transactions or block trades.
