WAKEFIELD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 23, 2021--
Franklin Street Properties Corp. (the “Company”, “FSP”, “our” or “we”) (NYSE American: FSP), a real estate investment trust (REIT), announced today that the Company’s Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to $50 million of its outstanding common shares.
Any purchases made pursuant to the program will be made from time to time in the open market, privately negotiated transactions or other manners as permitted by federal securities laws. The timing, manner, price and amount of any repurchases will be determined by the Company in its discretion and will be subject to economic and market conditions, stock price, applicable legal requirements and other factors. The program may be suspended or discontinued at any time.
George J. Carter, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of FSP, commented as follows:
“We previously announced 2021 disposition guidance in the range of $350 million to $450 million in aggregate gross proceeds. We continue to intend to use those proceeds primarily for debt reduction. However, we believe that our stock price may at times not be fully reflective of the value of our underlying assets. As a result, we may use a portion of proceeds from those asset sales for share repurchases as market conditions warrant.”
