LAKEWOOD, N.J., Sept. 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reliance Global Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: RELI; RELIW) (“Reliance”, “we” or the “Company”), which combines artificial intelligence (AI) and cloud-based technologies with the personalized experience of a traditional insurance agency, today announced that its Board of Directors (the “Board”) authorized a share repurchase program under which the Company may repurchase up to 3.0 million shares of its outstanding common stock, which will become effective three business days after the date the Company issues its quarterly earnings release for the three months ended September 30, 2022 (the “Commencement Date”), which the Company currently anticipates issuing on or about November 14, 2022.
Following the Commencement Date, and for a period of six months thereafter, repurchases may be made through open market transactions (based on prevailing market prices), privately negotiated transactions, block trades, or any combination thereof, in accordance with applicable federal securities laws, including Rule 10b-18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The number of shares to be repurchased and the timing of the repurchases, if any, will depend on a number of factors, including, but not limited to, price, trading volume and general market conditions, along with the Company’s working capital requirements and general business conditions. The Board of Directors of the Company will re-evaluate the program from time to time and may authorize adjustments to its terms. The Company expects to utilize its existing funds to fund repurchases under the repurchase program.
Ezra Beyman, CEO of Reliance Global Group, commented, “We are pleased to announce this share repurchase program, which we expect will help drive value for shareholders by reducing the outstanding shares. We believe the Company is in a stronger position than at any time in our history, but do not believe this is reflected in the share price given the current market conditions. As further illustration of my confidence, I have personally purchased over $400,000 of stock in the open market within the past weeks. We could not be more encouraged by the outlook for the business and look forward to providing further updates on RELI Exchange and other significant initiatives underway.”
