NEW YORK, May 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, CLEAR (NYSE: YOU) announced that CLEAR's Board of Directors has authorized a share repurchase program pursuant to which the Company may purchase up to $100 million of its Class A Common Stock.
"As CLEAR owners, we are intensely focused on economic capital allocation to maximize long-term returns, including opportunistic share repurchases," said Caryn Seidman-Becker, CEO of CLEAR.
