ITEM 8.01. OTHER EVENTS.

On November 30, 2023, our board of directors authorized an extension of our existing stock repurchase program pursuant to which we may purchase up to $10.0 million worth of shares of our outstanding common stock. Share repurchases under the program will be made from time to time in the open market or privately negotiated transactions pursuant to trading plans intended to comply with Rule 10b5-1 under the Exchange Act, which would permit repurchases to occur during periods when we might otherwise be precluded from making purchases under insider trading laws or company policy. The timing, amount and extent to which we repurchase shares will depend on a number of factors, including the market price of our common stick and general market and economic conditions. Our board of directors extended the stock repurchase program through December 31, 2025, provided that our board of directors may suspend or discontinue the repurchase program at any time.

ITEM 9.01. FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AND EXHIBITS.
