On February 7, 2023, the Board of CBIZ, Inc. (the “Company”) authorized the continuation of the Company’s Share Repurchase Program, which has been renewed annually for the past nineteen years.

As of December 31, 2022, CBIZ had 50,180,154 shares of common stock outstanding.

CBIZ anticipates that it will obtain all of the funds necessary to purchase shares under the repurchase program, and to pay related fees and expenses, from operating cash flow and by borrowing under its credit facility. This authorization allows such purchases to the extent permitted under the Company’s current or any future credit facility, without further amendment.
