NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Volt Information Sciences, Inc. (NYSE-MKT:VISI) today announced that its Board of Directors has authorized a new repurchase program of up to 1,500,000 shares of the Company's common stock, replacing a prior program. Under the program, which will begin on January 19, 2015, shares will be repurchased at management's discretion through open market or private transactions.
“Our new share repurchase program underscores our continued commitment to building shareholder value. While we remain focused on investing capital internally to fund growth of our business, we will also make share repurchases as we strongly believe in the Company and its future and believe that Volt’s share price does not fully reflect the Company’s underlying value,” said Ron Kochman, President and Chief Executive Officer.
Share repurchases under the program will be subject to specified parameters and certain price and volume restraints and any repurchased shares will be held in treasury. The exact number and timing of share repurchases will depend upon market conditions and other factors.
