Inuvo Announces Stock Repurchase Program

LITTLE ROCK, AR -- (Marketwired) -- 12/12/16 -- Inuvo, Inc. (NYSE MKT: INUV), an advertising technology and digital publishing company, today announced that on December 9, 2016 its Board of Directors authorized a stock repurchase program, under which the Company may repurchase up to $500,000 of its outstanding common stock. The stock repurchase program is effective immediately and will expire on November 30, 2017.

Mr. Richard Howe, Chief Executive Officer of Inuvo, commented, "The Board and senior management strongly believe that Inuvo's current valuation, given its financial performance, growth opportunities and long-term strategy, is not being reflected in the market. Our stock repurchase program demonstrates the confidence we have in our operations and we believe represents a good use of capital for our shareholders."

Under the stock repurchase program, Inuvo may repurchase shares in the open market in accordance with all applicable securities laws and regulations, including Rule 10b-18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The extent to which Inuvo repurchases its shares, and the timing of such repurchases, will depend upon a variety of factors, including market conditions, regulatory requirements and other corporate considerations, as determined by Inuvo's management team. The stock repurchase program may be suspended at any time.
