BankFinancial Corporation (NASDAQ: BFIN) announced today that its Board of Directors has extended the expiration date of the Company's share repurchase authorization from April 30, 2021 to November 15, 2021, and increased the total number of shares currently authorized for repurchase under the Share Repurchase Program from 6,210,755 shares to 6,460,755 shares, an increase of 250,000 shares. Pursuant to the share repurchase authorization, a total of 288,158 shares of the Company remained authorized for repurchase pursuant to the amended repurchase authorization through April 30, 2021.

The authorization permits shares to be repurchased in open market or negotiated transactions, and pursuant to any trading plan that may be adopted in accordance with Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities and Exchange Commission. The authorization will be utilized at management’s discretion, subject to price, volume and other internal limitations that will be established by the Company’s Board of Directors, and to the limitations set forth in Rule 10b-18 of the Securities and Exchange Commission and other applicable legal requirements. Share repurchases will be funded from specifically-allocated working capital, if and as available.

The authorization does not obligate the Company to purchase any particular number of shares at any given price per share at any time. The implementation of the authorization is contingent upon adequate liquidity to consummate the authorized repurchases at then current market prices, including the proceeds from the potential future declaration of dividends from the Company’s bank subsidiary. Share repurchases may be suspended, terminated or modified at any time for any reason, including market prices for the Company’s stock and other market conditions, the cost of repurchasing shares, the availability of alternative investment opportunities, sufficient liquidity to consummate repurchases, and other factors deemed appropriate. These factors, as well as internal restrictions on trading in the Company's shares during specific time periods, may also affect the timing and amount of share repurchases.
