AutoNavi Holdings Announces Share Repurchase Program of up to $50M
AutoNavi Holdings Limited (Nasdaq: AMAP) has been authorized, but not obligated, by its board of directors to repurchase up to US$50.0 million worth of its own American depositary shares within 12 months upon receiving such authorization. The repurchases may be made from time to time on the open market at prevailing market prices pursuant to a 10b5-1 plan (which allows AutoNavi to repurchase its ADSs pursuant to the pre-determined terms under the plan at any time, including periods in which it may be in possession of material non-public information), in negotiated transactions off the market, in block trades or otherwise.
The timing and extent of any purchases will depend upon market conditions, the trading price of its ADSs and other factors, and is subject to the restrictions relating to volume, price and timing under applicable law. AutoNavi expects to implement this share repurchase program in a manner consistent with market conditions and the interests of the shareholders. AutoNavi's board of directors will review the share repurchase program periodically, and may authorize adjustment of its terms and size accordingly. AutoNavi plans to fund repurchases made under this program from its available cash balance.
