CAI International Announces the Authorization of 1.5M Share Repurchase Program
CAI International, Inc. (CAI) (NYSE: CAP), one of the world's leading lessors of intermodal freight containers, today announced that its Board of Directors has approved a stock repurchase program (the “Program”). Under the Program, CAI is authorized to repurchase up to one million five hundred thousand shares of its outstanding common stock from time to time and at prices considered appropriate by the company depending upon share price and prevailing economic and market conditions. The stock repurchases may be made in the open market, block trades or privately negotiated transactions. The primary purpose of the Program is to allow CAI the flexibility to repurchase its common stock to return value to stockholders. The number of shares of common stock actually acquired, if any, by CAI will depend on subsequent developments, corporate needs and market conditions. The Program is effective immediately, and may be suspended or discontinued at any time. This Program supersedes and replaces the prior stock repurchase program authorized in 2011 for the repurchase of up to one million shares of common stock.
"This Program reaffirms our commitment to increase stockholder value and our confidence in the financial strength of the company,” said Victor Garcia, CAI's President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our business continues to generate healthy cash flow which allows us to repurchase our outstanding stock and continue investing in the business."
