Deep Down Announces Share Repurchase Program

December 23, 2019 GMT

HOUSTON, Dec. 23, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Deep Down, Inc. (OTCQB: DPDW), a specialist in deep-water oil and gas production equipment and services, today announced that its Board of Directors has authorized the repurchase of up to 500,000 shares of the Company’s common stock. The repurchase program will be funded from cash on hand and cash provided by operating activities.

Charles Njuguna, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated “We believe Deep Down is undervalued given the improving prospects for the business and our proven expertise, services and technological solutions.

The repurchase program will expire on December 20, 2020.
