Share Repurchase Program

The Company's Board of Directors (the "Board") today authorized a share repurchase program under which the Company may repurchase up to $5.1m of its outstanding common shares, representing approximately10% of the Company's market capitalization as of August 14, 2020, for a period of three months (the "Repurchase Program"). The Board will periodically review the Company's Repurchase Program, and may decide to extend its term or increase the authorized amount, by another 10% to 15%, that may be repurchased thereunder.

Under the Repurchase Program, the Company may repurchase common shares in privately negotiated or open-market transactions in accordance with applicable securities laws and regulations, including Rule 10b-18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and pursuant to a trading plan adopted in accordance with Rule 10b5‐1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

The specific timing and amount of repurchases, if any, will be at the discretion of the Company's management team, and will depend upon a variety of factors, including market conditions, regulatory requirements, capital allocation alternatives, and other corporate considerations. The Company is not obligated under the program to purchase any common shares. The repurchase program may be suspended or discontinued at any time.
