(NYSE: MMI), a leading commercial real estate brokerage firm specializing in investment sales, financing, research and advisory services, announced today that its Board of Directors (the “Board”) has authorized a $70 million stock repurchase program.

Any and all future dividends are subject to review and approval by the Board of Directors.
Hessam Nadji, President and CEO, stated, “We continue to focus on delivering long-term value for investors, balancing strategic investments with a return of capital to shareholders. Our strong balance sheet enables us to remain proactive in pursuing strategic acquisitions and continue investing in technology and other platform enhancements as our top capital allocation strategies. At the same time, we are in a great position to implement our first stock repurchase program in combination with our regular dividend policy and the special dividend paid earlier this year. These programs have the Board’s full support and reflect our continued confidence in the overall long-term outlook of the Company.”
