this new repurchase program. Purchases may be made in open-market
transactions, block transactions on or off an exchange, or in privately
PC Connection’s board had previously authorized a share repurchase
program under which the remaining authorized amount is approximately
$2.8 million. The Company intends to complete this repurchase program
before repurchasing shares under the new program.
The timing and amount of any shares repurchased will be determined by
the company's management based on its evaluation of market conditions

Any repurchased shares will be available for use in connection with PC
Connection’s stock plans and for other corporate purposes.
Payment for shares repurchased under the programs will be funded using
