TAIPEI, Taiwan, Nov. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- GigaMedia Limited (NASDAQ: GIGM) today announced that its Chief Executive Officer Collin Hwang has purchased a total of 858,412 shares of GigaMedia stock at an average price of $0.58 during the period between November 9, 2015 and November 16, 2015. The purchases were made during an open window period and in full compliance with all company and legal guidelines.
Collin Hwang, CEO of the Company, stated " Due to the the rapid changes and instability in global economic condition, we had to re-evaluate our moving forward strategy. On the other hand, we keep the cash in hand and will continue to look for potential investment opportunities which could bring consistent revenue and profits to the Company. At present, our company's net cash value is about US$1.2 per share and around 90% of the cash is in US dollar which is getting strong but we are able to minimize the loss on currency exchange. In addition to the aforementioned, I do believe that our company's current stock price is far more undervalued. And that's why I purchased more our company's shares on the market."
