Archrock Announces $50 Million Share Repurchase Authorization and Quarterly Cash Dividend

April 28, 2023

HOUSTON, April 28, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Archrock, Inc. (NYSE: AROC) (“Archrock” or the “Company”) today announced that its Board of Directors has authorized a new $50 million share repurchase program (“2023 Share Repurchase Program”).

The Board of Directors has also declared a quarterly dividend of $0.15 per share of common stock, or $0.60 per share on an annualized basis. The first quarter 2023 dividend will be paid on May 16, 2023 to all stockholders of record on May 9, 2023.

“With the rapid tightening in compression market fundamentals and our continued confidence in Archrock’s financial outlook, we are accelerating our plan to increase shareholder returns and supplementing our compelling quarterly dividend with a share repurchase program,” said Brad Childers, Archrock’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “As the path to a leverage ratio of below 4.0 times this year becomes clearer, this authorization provides an additional capital allocation tool and the flexibility to opportunistically act on any broader market dislocation. We believe Archrock is in an enviable position, with significant earnings power and cash flow growth forecasted ahead, and we remain committed to creating and returning value to shareholders.”   

Under the 2023 Share Repurchase Program, shares of the Company’s common stock may be repurchased periodically, including in the open market, privately negotiated transactions, or otherwise in accordance with applicable federal securities laws, at any time until April 27, 2024. The actual timing, manner, number, and value of shares repurchased under the program will be determined by the Company at its discretion.
