Item 8.01. Other Events.
On December 15, 2021, BayCom Corp (“BayCom”), the parent company for United Business Bank, issued a press release announcing that its Board of Directors (the “Board”) authorized a stock repurchase program for up to 747,000 shares of its common stock, or approximately 7% of its outstanding shares. Under the stock repurchase program, BayCom intends to repurchase shares through open market purchases, privately-negotiated transactions, block purchases or otherwise in accordance with applicable federal securities laws, including Rule 10b-18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”). The repurchase program does not obligate BayCom to purchase any particular number of shares.
The Board also authorized BayCom to enter into written trading plans under Rule 10b5-1 of the Exchange Act. Adopting a trading plan that satisfies the conditions of Rule 10b5-1 allows a company to repurchase its shares at times when it might otherwise be prevented from doing so due to self-imposed trading blackout periods or pursuant to insider trading laws. Under any Rule 10b5-1 trading plan, BayCom’s third-party broker, subject to Securities and Exchange Commission regulations regarding certain price, market, volume and timing constraints, would have authority to purchase BayCom common stock in accordance with the terms of the plan. BayCom may from time to time enter into Rule 10b5-1 trading plans to facilitate the repurchase of its common stock pursuant to its share repurchase program.
BayCom cannot predict when or if it will repurchase any shares of common stock as such stock repurchase program will depend on a number of factors, including constraints specified in any Rule 10b5-1 trading plans, price, general business and market conditions, and alternative investment opportunities. Information regarding share repurchases will be available in BayCom’s periodic reports on Form 10-Q and Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission as required by the applicable rules of the Exchange Act.
This report contains forward-looking information, as that term is defined under the Exchange Act, including information regarding purchases by BayCom of its common stock pursuant to any Rule 10b5-1 trading plans. By their nature, forward-looking information and statements are subject to risks, uncertainties, and contingencies, including changes in price and volume and the volatility of BayCom’s common stock; adverse developments affecting either or both of prices and trading of exchange-traded securities, including securities listed on the Nasdaq Stock Market; and unexpected or otherwise unplanned or alternative requirements with respect to the capital investments of BayCom. BayCom does not undertake to update any forward-looking statements or information, including those contained in this report.
