COLUMBIA, Md., Feb. 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Global performance improvement solutions provider GP Strategies Corporation (NYSE: GPX) announced its Board of Directors has authorized a $15 million share repurchase program, replacing the existing authorization which has approximately $0.6 million remaining. GP Strategies’ share repurchase program allows management, at its discretion, to repurchase shares from time to time in the open market subject to market conditions and other factors.
Scott Greenberg, Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We believe that the share repurchase program reflects confidence in the Company and our commitment to increasing shareholder value. The buyback program allows the Company flexibility to repurchase shares at its discretion, while maintaining sufficient liquidity to invest in strategic growth initiatives.”
The Company expects to fund share repurchases using cash generated from operations and borrowings under its $65 million credit facility. The repurchases will be made at management’s discretion in accordance with applicable federal securities law. The amount and timing of share repurchases will depend on a variety of factors, including market conditions and prevailing stock prices. The share buyback authorization does not obligate the Company to acquire any specific number of shares in any period, and may be modified, suspended or discontinued at any time at the discretion of the Company’s Board of Directors.
