The Pennant Group Announces Share Repurchase Program

EAGLE, Idaho, Dec. 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Pennant Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: PNTG), the parent company of the Pennant group of affiliated home health, hospice and senior living companies, today announced that its Board of Directors has approved a share repurchase program under which the Company may repurchase its common stock.

“We are committed to strategically deploying capital to drive growth and long-term value for Pennant stockholders. Steady and disciplined acquisition activity is a key component of Pennant’s strategy—we seek consistently to invest capital in situations likely to generate favorable returns over the long term. Share repurchases can be a valuable capital allocation tool and we view this as a good time to begin the practice of opportunistically investing in our own stock when it is undervalued. We are confident in our people, in our unique operating model, and in our future growth plans, and we are excited to have the flexibility to seize attractive buying opportunities for our stock,” said Brent Guerisoli, Pennant’s Chief Executive Officer.

Under the share repurchase program, the Company may repurchase shares from time to time through open market purchases, including through the use of trading plans intended to comply with Rule 10b5-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The timing and total amount of stock repurchases will depend upon business, economic and market conditions, corporate and regulatory requirements, prevailing stock prices, and other considerations. The authorization expires on December 12, 2023, and may be suspended or discontinued at any time and does not obligate the company to acquire any amount of common stock.
