Item 8.01 Other Events.

On December 6, 2023, the Board approved to extend the expiration date of the Company’s current share repurchase program that was set to expire on December 31, 2023 to December 31, 2024 (the “Repurchase Program”). The Repurchase Program was originally approved on December 14, 2022 and authorized the repurchase of up to $25 million of the Company’s shares of Class A common stock. Currently, the Company has $20 million available for repurchase under the Repurchase Program.

Under the Repurchase Program, the Company may repurchase shares of the Class A common stock through open market purchases, by block purchase, in privately-negotiated transactions, or otherwise in compliance with Rule 10b-18 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). The extent to which the Company repurchases its shares of Class A common stock and the timing of such purchases will depend upon market conditions, regulatory requirements, other corporate liquidity requirements and priorities and other factors as may be considered in the Company’s sole discretion. Repurchases may also be made pursuant to a trading plan under Rule 10b5-1 under the Exchange Act, which would permit shares to be repurchased when the Company might otherwise be precluded from doing so because of self-imposed trading blackout periods or other regulatory restrictions. The Repurchase Program does not obligate the Company to repurchase any particular amount of Class A common stock and may be suspended or discontinued at any time without notice.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
