Share purchases will take place in open market transactions or in privately negotiated transactions and may be made from time to time depending on market conditions, share price, trading volume and other factors. Such purchases will be made in accordance with all applicable securities laws and regulations. For all or a portion of the authorized repurchase amount, AudioCodes may enter into a plan that is compliant with Rule 10b5-1 of the United States Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The repurchase program does not require AudioCodes to acquire a specific number of shares, and may be suspended from time to time or discontinued.
The share repurchases will be funded from available working capital. AudioCodes expects that the approval process for the additional repurchase program will take approximately three months.
