The Company's capital management objectives are:
On March 18, 2015, the Company’s Board of Directors adopted a dividend distribution policy (the “Policy”), pursuant to which the Company intends to distribute a dividend of up to 33% of the annual distributable profits each year, either by way of a cash dividend, a share buyback program or a combination of both. The distribution of the dividends and the dividend amounts pursuant to the Policy are not guaranteed and are subject to the specific approval of the Company’s Board of Directors, based on various factors they deem appropriate including, among others, the Company’s financial position, the Company’s outstanding liabilities and contractual obligations, prospective acquisitions, the Company’s business plan and the market conditions.
In May 2015, the Company’s Board of Directors approved the repurchase of up to $3,000 thousand (approximately €2,700 thousand) of the Company’s ordinary shares. The authorized repurchases will be made from time to time in the open market on the NYSE American and Tel Aviv Stock Exchange or in privately negotiated transactions. The timing, volume and nature of share repurchases will be at the sole discretion of management and will be dependent on regulatory restrictions, market conditions, the price and availability of the Company’s ordinary shares, applicable securities laws and other factors, including compliance with the terms of the Series A and Series B Debentures. No assurance can be given that any particular amount of ordinary shares will be repurchased. The buyback program does not obligate the Company to acquire a specific number of shares in any period, and it may be modified, suspended, extended or discontinued at any time, without prior notice. As of December 31, 2018, the Company repurchased 172,391 ordinary shares at an aggregate purchase price of $1,477 thousand (approximately €1,332 thousand) in the NYSE American under this buyback program.
