On February 26, 2020, First Midwest Bancorp, Inc. (“First Midwest” or the “Company”) issued a press release announcing that its Board of Directors approved a new stock repurchase program that authorizes the Company to repurchase up to $200 million of its outstanding common stock. Stock repurchases under this program may be made from time to time on the open market, in privately negotiated transactions or through accelerated share repurchase programs, at the discretion of the Company and at prices to be determined by the Company. The program will be in effect until December 31, 2021.
The repurchase program does not obligate the Company to repurchase a specific dollar amount or number of shares, and the program may be extended, modified or discontinued at any time.
The new stock repurchase program replaces the Company’s prior $180 million stock repurchase program, which was scheduled to expire in March 2020 and under which the Company repurchased approximately $44.9 million of its common stock.
The press release, dated February 26, 2020, is attached to this report as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated herein by reference.

This current report on Form 8-K, including the exhibits attached hereto, as well as any oral statements made by or on behalf of First Midwest, may contain certain “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements include those relating to First Midwest’s new stock repurchase program, including the timing and amount of any repurchase under the program. In some cases, forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of words such as “may,” “might,” “will,” “would,” “should,” “could,” “expect,” “plan,” “intend,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “outlook,” “predict,” “project,” “probable,” “potential,” “possible,” “target,” “continue,” “look forward,” or “assume” and words of similar import. Forward-looking statements are not historical facts or guarantees of future performance or outcomes, but instead express only management’s beliefs regarding future results or events, many of which, by their nature, are inherently uncertain and outside of management’s control. It is possible that actual results and events may differ, possibly materially, from the anticipated results or events indicated in these forward-looking statements. First Midwest cautions you not to place undue reliance on these statements. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date made, and First Midwest undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements to reflect new information, events or conditions.
These statements are subject to certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions, including those discussed under the sections entitled “Risk Factors” and “Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in First Midwest's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018, and in First Midwest's subsequent filings made with the Securities and Exchange Commission. These risks and uncertainties are not exhaustive, and other sections of these reports describe additional factors that could adversely impact First Midwest's business and financial performance.
