MeetMe Announces $15 Million Share Repurchase Program


MeetMe, Inc. (NASDAQ: MEET), a public market leader for social
discovery, announced today that its board of directors has approved a
one year share repurchase program that enables the company to purchase
up to $15 million of its shares of common stock from time to time in the
open market or through negotiated transactions. Share purchases will be
funded from cash from operations.

“With significant free cash flow being generated through our successful
business model, we believe our stock is undervalued and the repurchase
of our shares is an efficient use of our excess capital and will enhance
shareholder value,” said Geoff Cook, Chief Executive Officer of MeetMe.
“We believe the share repurchase program is supported by our growing
scale and increased profitability. The strength of our balance sheet
gives us the confidence and flexibility to execute this program and the
Skout, Inc. acquisition for the benefit of our shareholders.”

Repurchases under MeetMe’s program will be made in the open market or
through privately negotiated transactions intended to comply with the
Securities and Exchange Commission Rule 10b-18, subject to market
conditions, applicable legal requirements, and other relevant factors.
The share repurchase program does not obligate the Company to acquire
any particular amount of common stock, and it may be suspended at any
time at the Company’s discretion. MeetMe had approximately 54.4 million
shares of common stock outstanding as of August 31, 2016.
