PGTI Authorizes $30 Million Stock Repurchase Program

VENICE, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–PGT Innovations, Inc. (NYSE: PGTI), a national leader in the premium
window and door category, today announced that its board of directors
has authorized the repurchase of up to $30 million of PGTI’s common

PGTI expects that any stock repurchases will be funded through available
cash. The repurchases may be made in open market or private transactions
from time to time. Repurchases of shares may be made under a Rule 10b5-1
plan, which would permit repurchases when the Company might otherwise be
precluded from doing so under insider trading laws. The Company will
base future repurchase decisions, including the timing of any such
repurchases, on such factors as PGTI’s stock price, general economic and
market conditions, the potential impact on its capital structure, the
expected return on competing uses of capital such as strategic
acquisitions and capital investments, and other corporate
considerations, as determined by management. PGTI gives no assurance as
to the amount of repurchases to be made or the actual purchase prices,
and any repurchase program may be suspended or discontinued at any time.
