ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Nov. 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Zynex, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZYXI), an innovative medical technology company specializing in the manufacture and sale of non-invasive medical devices for pain management, rehabilitation, and patient monitoring, today announced that its board of directors approved a program to buy back $10.0 million of the Company's common stock. The program will commence on November 1, 2022 and is scheduled to terminate on October 31, 2023 or when the $10.0 million buyback limit is reached.
"We are committed to driving long-term value for our shareholders and believe that the current strength of our balance sheet presents a strategic opportunity for a third buyback program," said Thomas Sandgaard, founder, and CEO of Zynex. "We've repurchased $20 million of our common stock thus far in 2022 and an additional $10 million share buyback reiterates our commitment to creating value. We believe our consistent performance and ability to maintain profitability is not reflected in Zynex's market valuation and are initiating this buyback program as an attractive opportunity to deploy capital and return value to our shareholders."
Under the share buyback program, buybacks may be made from time-to-time in open market and negotiated purchases, effective immediately through the next twelve months. These buybacks will be made in compliance with the SEC's Rule 10b-18, subject to market conditions, available liquidity, cash flow, applicable legal requirements, and other factors. The specific prices, numbers of shares, and timing of purchase transactions will be determined by the Company from time to time in its sole discretion. This program does not obligate the Company to acquire any particular amount of common stock, and the program may be suspended or discontinued at any time, including in the event the Company would be deemed to be making an acquisition of its own shares under Rule 13e-3 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
The Company expects to finance the purchases with existing cash balances, which is not expected to have a material impact on capital levels.
Zynex, Inc. had approximately 41.6 million shares issued and 37.5 million shares outstanding as of November 1, 2022.
Zynex, founded in 1996, develops, manufactures, markets, and sells medical devices used for pain management and rehabilitation as well as non-invasive fluid, sepsis, and laser-based pulse oximetry monitoring systems for use in hospitals. For additional information, please visit: www.zynex.com.
