TriMas Announces Increased Share Repurchase Authorization to $75 Million

BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–TriMas (NASDAQ: TRS) today announced that its Board of Directors
increased the Company’s common stock share repurchase authorization to
$75 million. The previous authorization, approved in November 2015,
authorized up to $50 million in share repurchases.

“This increase demonstrates our continued confidence in our ability to
grow and generate strong cash flow, and our commitment to deliver value
to our shareholders,” said Thomas Amato, TriMas president and chief
executive officer. “While maintaining a strong balance sheet, our
capital allocation priorities will be to continue to invest in projects
to grow and continuously improve our businesses, strategic acquisitions
and share repurchases.”

During the fourth quarter, the Company purchased 318,494 shares of its
outstanding common stock for approximately $8.6 million, bringing the
total for the year ended December 31, 2018 to 442,632 shares, or
approximately 1% of shares outstanding. The Company began repurchasing
shares during the second quarter of 2018, and utilized $12.1 million of
the prior $50 million authorization through 2018. The increased share
repurchase authorization includes the value of shares already
repurchased under the previous authorization.

The extent to which TriMas repurchases its shares, and the timing of
such repurchases, will depend upon a variety of factors, including
market conditions, share price, regulatory requirements, other available
uses of capital and other corporate considerations. The program does not
require the purchase of any minimum number of shares and may be
suspended, modified or discontinued at any time without prior notice.
