HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 10, 2018--
Comfort Systems USA, Inc. (NYSE: FIX), a leading provider of
mechanical services including heating, ventilation, air conditioning,
plumbing, piping and controls, today announced that its board of
directors has approved an amendment to the Company’s stock repurchase
program to increase the shares authorized and remaining as available to
purchase back up to 1,000,000 shares by authorizing the Company to
acquire up to 670,916 additional shares of its outstanding common stock.
The Company’s existing stock repurchase program had previously
authorized the repurchase of up to 8,112,493 shares of the Company’s
outstanding common stock.
Through August 9, 2018, the Company repurchased 7,783,409 shares of the
Company’s common stock at an aggregate price of $112,102,830. This

purchased as of August 9, 2018.
The share repurchases will be made from time to time at the Company’s
discretion in the open market or privately negotiated transactions as
permitted by securities laws and other legal requirements, and subject
to market conditions and other factors. The Company expects that the
share repurchases will be financed with available cash. The Company’s
board of directors may modify, suspend, extend, or terminate the program
at any time.
