Exhibit 99.1






Rochelle Park, NJ, August 5, 2019 – ORBCOMM Inc. (NASDAQ: ORBC), a global provider of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, today announced that its Board of Directors has authorized a stock repurchase program, under which ORBCOMM may repurchase up to $25 million of its outstanding common stock. The stock repurchase program has a duration of one year. Repurchases under the stock repurchase program will be funded from ORBCOMM’s existing cash and cash equivalents.


“This repurchase program demonstrates the Board’s confidence in our future and our commitment to delivering shareholder value,” said Marc Eisenberg, ORBCOMM’s Chief Executive Officer. “At present, based on the prospects of our business, we believe that buying back shares represents a good investment for shareholders.”


Under the stock repurchase program, ORBCOMM may purchase shares of its common stock through various means, including open market transactions and privately negotiated transactions. In addition, open market repurchases of common stock may be made pursuant to applicable security laws and regulations, including Rule 10b-18, as well as Rule 10b5-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, which would permit common stock to be repurchased at a time that ORBCOMM might otherwise be precluded from doing so under insider trading laws or self-imposed trading restrictions. The number of shares and the timing of repurchases will be determined by ORBCOMM’s management at its discretion and will depend on a number of factors, including, but not limited to, stock price, trading volume and general market conditions, along with ORBCOMM’s working capital requirements, general business conditions, compliance with terms of ORBCOMM’s outstanding indebtedness, and other factors.  As of June 30, 2019, ORBCOMM had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $54.8 million. ORBCOMM had approximately 79,753,545 shares of common stock outstanding as of June 30, 2019.


There is no guarantee as to the number of shares that will be repurchased under the repurchase program, and the repurchase program may be modified, suspended or discontinued at any time without notice at ORBCOMM’s discretion.
