Bsquare Announces Share Repurchase Plan


Board approves plan to repurchase up to $5 million of common stock


Seattle, WA – November 29, 2022 – Bsquare Corporation (NASDAQ: BSQR) (“Bsquare” or the “Company”) announced today that its Board of Directors has approved a plan to repurchase up to $5 million of its common stock (the “Share Repurchase Program”).


“Our operating discipline and cash reserves combine to create potential for building value that is not reflected in our share price today,” said Ralph C. Derrickson, President and CEO of Bsquare. “This share repurchase program allows us to return cash to shareholders without compromising our ability to pursue organic growth or strategic alternatives,” Derrickson added.


Under the Share Repurchase Program, the Company is authorized to purchase shares of its common stock on a discretionary basis from time to time through open market purchases, privately negotiated transactions or otherwise in accordance with applicable federal securities laws, including through Rule 10b5-1 trading plans and under Rule 10b-18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The Share Repurchase Program has no time limit and may be suspended or discontinued completely at any time. The number of shares to be purchased and the timing of purchases will be based on the Company's trading windows and available liquidity, general business and market conditions, and other factors, including legal requirements, and alternative investment opportunities.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements


This release contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the safe-harbor provisions of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements can be identified by words such as: "expect," "continue," "believe," "plan," "strategy," "future," "may," "should," "will," and similar references to future periods. Examples of forward-looking statements include, among others, express or implied statements we make regarding the potential success of the Share Repurchase Program, our ability to achieve our business strategies, growth, or other future events or conditions. Forward-looking statements are neither historical facts nor assurances about future performance. Instead, they are based on current beliefs, expectations and assumptions about the future of our business and other future conditions. Because forward-looking statements relate to the future, they are subject to inherent uncertainties, risks, and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict and many of which are outside of our control. Therefore, you should not rely on any of these forward-looking statements.
