U.S. Global Investors Increases Share Buyback Program
U.S. Global Investors, Inc. (NASDAQ: GROW) (the “Company”), a registered investment advisory firm with longstanding experience in global markets and specialized sectors, is pleased to announce that it has increased the limit to its annual share buyback program 82%, from $2.75 million to $5 million.
As before, the Company strategically repurchases stock on down days using an algorithm. The decision to increase the amount is to complement two increases to the Company’s monthly dividend, one in February 2021 and another in October 2021. The dividend payout is up 50% from a year ago. The maximum amount of capital committed to buy back stocks is up over 80% to $5 million for the calendar year.
“The increase to the buyback program reflects the Board of Directors’ continued confidence in the Company’s financial strategy. The directors believe the Company is undervalued relative to other asset managers based on a number of fundamental factors, including return on assets and return on equity. The Board believes it is prudent to have increased dividends and stock buybacks while reserving some capital to be able to launch new smart-beta products such as the U.S. Global Sea to Sky Cargo ETF (SEA). In addition, the Company is debt free,” says Frank Holmes, Company CEO and Chief Investment Officer.
