CB Financial Services, Inc. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ: CBFV), the holding company for Community Bank, announced today a program to repurchase up to $10 million of the Company's outstanding shares of common stock. Based on the Company’s closing stock price on April 19, 2022, the repurchase program, if fully completed, would encompass 433,643 shares, or approximately 8.4% the shares currently outstanding.
Any repurchases will not occur until after the Company issues its earnings release for the quarter ended March 31, 2022, which the Company expects to do during the last week of April.
Repurchases may be transacted in the open-market or in negotiated private transactions and will be conducted pursuant to a trading plan adopted in accordance with limitations set forth in Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Rule 10b5-1 repurchase plan allows the Company to repurchase its shares during periods when it would normally not be active in the market due to its internal trading blackout period. The repurchase program may be suspended, terminated or modified at any time for any reason, including market conditions, the cost of repurchasing shares, the availability of alternative investment opportunities, liquidity, and other factors deemed appropriate. These factors may also affect the timing and amount of share repurchases. The repurchase program does not obligate the Company to purchase any particular number of shares.
