Item 8.01. Other Events

On November 20, 2019, the Board of Directors (the "Board") of The National Security Group, Inc. (the "Company") authorized a common stock repurchase program of up to $1 million of the currently outstanding shares of the Company's common stock. Under the repurchase program, the Company is authorized to repurchase shares in open market purchases as well as in privately negotiated transactions from time to time through May 31, 2020. Stock purchased under this program will be held as treasury stock and will be available for general corporate purposes. The repurchase program’s terms will comply with applicable securities laws and regulations, including Rule 10b-18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The program is also subject to market conditions, applicable legal requirements, alternative cash needs that may arise and other factors, as determined by Company management. The repurchase program does not obligate the Company to acquire a specific number of shares and may be suspended or terminated at any time. Repurchases of the Company’s common stock will be financed primarily through free cash flow.
