BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Michigan, February 28, 2019 – TriMas (NASDAQ: TRS) today announced that its Board of Directors increased the Company’s common stock share repurchase authorization to $75 million. The previous authorization, approved in November 2015, authorized up to $50 million in share repurchases.

“This increase demonstrates our continued confidence in our ability to grow and generate strong cash flow, and our commitment to deliver value to our shareholders,” said Thomas Amato, TriMas president and chief executive officer. “While maintaining a strong balance sheet, our capital allocation priorities will be to continue to invest in projects to grow and continuously improve our businesses, strategic acquisitions and share repurchases.”

During the fourth quarter, the Company purchased 318,494 shares of its outstanding common stock for approximately $8.6 million, bringing the total for the year ended December 31, 2018 to 442,632 shares, or approximately 1% of shares outstanding. The Company began repurchasing shares during the second quarter of 2018, and utilized $12.1 million of the prior $50 million authorization through 2018. The increased share repurchase authorization includes the value of shares already repurchased under the previous authorization.

The extent to which TriMas repurchases its shares, and the timing of such repurchases, will depend upon a variety of factors, including market conditions, share price, regulatory requirements, other available uses of capital and other corporate considerations. The program does not require the purchase of any minimum number of shares and may be suspended, modified or discontinued at any time without prior notice.
