Reading time ( words)

Cemtrex Inc. has bought back and retired into treasury stock, 201,430 shares of Cemtrex common stock, at an average purchase price of $3.84 per share over the last 30-day period. The company spent $774,415 to purchase the CETX shares, which are now classified as treasury shares. This purchase reflects the company’s confidence in its business outlook and long term growth prospects.

The company's purchase was made under the share repurchase authorization that Cemtrex's board of directors approved in 2016 for the repurchase of up to one million outstanding shares over a 12 month period, depending on market conditions. Cemtrex now has roughly 800,000 shares remaining under this authorization.

Cemtrex Chairman and CEO Saagar Govil commented, "The buyback was consistent with our capital allocation strategy to grow our business and to maximize shareholder value. We believe our shares are extremely under-valued at their present price and that this purchase was a reflection of our firm belief in the long term success of Cemtrex. We feel strongly that this transaction will benefit our shareholders and we may continue to buy back shares if conditions persist."
