Monolithic Power Systems Announces $100 Million Stock Repurchase Program

SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Monolithic Power Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:MPWR) ("MPS") today announced that its Board of Directors has approved a stock repurchase program that authorizes MPS to repurchase up to $100 million dollars in the aggregate of its common stock over a two-year period, beginning August 9, 2013.

"After a review of MPS' financial position and cash flow projections, our Board concluded that it was in the best interest of our shareholders to engage in this repurchase program," said Michael Hsing, CEO and founder of MPS. "In addition, the repurchase program will help to offset dilution associated with our employee stock plans."

The repurchases will be funded from available working capital. As of June 30, 2013, MPS had cash, cash equivalents and investments of approximately $201 million, and approximately 38.2 million diluted weighted-average shares of common stock outstanding.

Stock repurchases under the program may be made through open market repurchases, privately negotiated transactions or other structures in accordance with applicable state and federal securities laws, at times and in amounts as management deems appropriate. The timing and the amount of any repurchased common stock will be determined by MPS' management based on its evaluation of market conditions, legal requirements, share price, and other factors. Repurchases of common stock may be made under a Rule 10b5-1 plan, which would permit common stock to be repurchased when the Company might otherwise be precluded from doing so under insider trading laws. The repurchase program does not obligate MPS to purchase any particular number of shares and may be suspended, modified, or discontinued at any time without prior notice.
