NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / August 16, 2022 / Zedge, Inc. (NYSE AMERICAN:ZDGE), a leader in building marketplaces and games around digital content that enable self-expression, today announced that its Board of Directors authorized a share repurchase program permitting the Company to purchase up to an aggregate of 1.5 million shares of Class B common stock.

'The board and management team believe that our stock price is undervalued and doesn't properly reflect our performance or fundamentals,' said Jonathan Reich, CEO of Zedge. 'We are executing on several outstanding growth opportunities and think now is the right time to put our strong balance sheet to work by investing in our own company. The long-term potential for both the Zedge app and GuruShots is tremendous, and we plan to share more details on our plans for and insights into this opportunity in the coming months.'

Zedge had approximately 14.86 million shares outstanding (on a diluted basis) as of April 30, 2022.

Purchases under the program will be made from time to time, as permitted by federal securities laws and through, at the Company's discretion, open market purchases, privately negotiated transactions, or other manners. The timing, manner, price and amount of any repurchases will be determined by the Company and will be subject to economic and market conditions, stock price, applicable legal requirements and other factors. In furtherance of the buyback, the Company has entered into a 'Rule 10b5-1 plan' to allow for purchases during the current period.
