Turtle Beach Announces Update on Its Return of Capital Strategy to Shareholders

Increases Share Repurchase Authorization to $55 Million to Honor Continued Commitment to Return Capital to Shareholders

Share Repurchase Authorization Replaces Previously Announced Tender Offer Given Underlying Shares Are Now Trading 11% Above Previously Communicated Top End of Proposed Tender Offer Range

Board of Directors Will Continue to Aggressively Assess Mechanisms to Create Shareholder Value

Leading gaming accessory maker Turtle Beach Corporation (Nasdaq: HEAR) (“Turtle Beach” or the “Company”) announced today its Board of Directors has modified its previously communicated near-term return of capital plan to shareholders, given the overwhelmingly positive reaction to the Company’s recent transformational acquisition of Performance Designed Products (“PDP”) and the strong underlying trading price of the Company’s shares.

With today’s announcement, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) no longer intends to launch the previously announced modified “Dutch auction” Tender Offer (the “Tender Offer”) to purchase up to $30 million of its common stock (the “Common Stock”) at a price per share not less than $13.75 per share and not greater than $15.00 per share. Since the acquisition of PDP and the intent to launch the Tender Offer was announced on March 13, 2024, the average trading price of the Company’s shares has surpassed the highest end of the Tender Offer range indicated, with the most recent closing price of the shares 11-21% above the range, and the Board believes the proposed Tender Offer would only receive limited participation. The Board has determined that launching a tender offer estimated to receive only limited participation would not achieve the Company’s objectives while at the same time creating significant and unneeded costs for the Company that are not in the best interests of investors.

In its continued effort to evaluate capital allocation priorities, the Board has determined that the best course of action to continue to return capital to shareholders is to increase the Company’s share repurchase program by $30 million. Under the revised share repurchase authorization, the Company is authorized to acquire up to a total of $55 million of shares of its common stock, including the $8.4 million already acquired under the program, at its discretion from time to time in the open market, or in block purchases or privately negotiated transactions, subject to compliance with the applicable restrictions in the Company’s debt agreements. The current balance remaining for the repurchase program, including today’s increased authorization, is $46.6 million.

Terry Jimenez, Chairman of the Board, states: “The Board of Directors is excited about the future of the Company and we are encouraged by the positive response of our investors to the significant changes underway at Turtle Beach. On behalf of the Board, we look forward to meaningful value creation opportunities for the Company and its shareholders. Increasing our share repurchase program is confirmation of the confidence the Board has in the Company’s cash generation outlook, expanded earnings power, and continued operational excellence.”

The Company expects to announce further details regarding the stock repurchase authorization in connection with the issuance of its first quarter 2024 earnings in May.

The amount and timing of specific repurchases are subject to market conditions, applicable legal requirements and other factors. Turtle Beach intends to fund the share repurchases using cash from operations or short-term borrowings and may suspend or discontinue repurchases at any time.
