American Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMSWA), a leading provider of innovative AI-powered supply chain management and advanced retail planning platforms, announced today that it has entered into a Rule 10b5-1 trading plan to facilitate stock buybacks under an existing share repurchase program previously approved by the Board of Directors. There are 946,321 shares available for repurchase under the existing authorization.
"We remain committed to strategically deploying capital to create long-term shareholder value,” said Allan Dow, CEO of American Software. “Our robust balance sheet and consistent cash flow generation provide us with ample capacity to execute our M&A strategy, as evidenced by our recent acquisition of AI forecasting pioneer Garvis, while returning capital to our stockholders through our quarterly dividend and share repurchases.”
The actual timing, number and value of the shares repurchased will depend on market conditions, share price, trading volume and other factors. Purchases under the plan will be administered through an independent broker and will be subject to the rules of Nasdaq and applicable securities laws and regulations, including Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The repurchase program does not require American Software to acquire a specific number of shares and may be suspended or discontinued at any time.
