TINTON FALLS, N.J., Jan. 24, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Two River Bancorp (Nasdaq:TRCB), (the "Company"), the parent company of Two River Community Bank, today announced that its Board of Directors approved an extension of the Company's Share Repurchase Program (the "Repurchase Program") from January 24, 2014 to December 31, 2014. In extending the Repurchase Program, the Board also reset the Company's repurchase authority so that it may now spend an additional $2.0 million on the repurchase of stock without any aggregate share limit. Previously, the Repurchase Program was limited to the repurchase of up to 5% of the Company's outstanding shares, in addition to having an aggregate spending limit of $2.2 million. To date, the Company has repurchased approximately 77,112 shares and spent $565,530.
"The extension of our share repurchase program reflects the Company's continued commitment to enhance value for our shareholders," said William D. Moss, President and Chief Executive Officer. "This action reaffirms the confidence we have in the Company's financial strength and our belief that the current market value of the Company's stock is not reflective of the Company's value."
The Repurchase Program will continue after the blackout period ends following the release of the Company's results of operations for the period ended December 31, 2013 and until the earlier of the completion of the repurchase or December 31, 2014.
Under the Repurchase Program, repurchases are made from time to time by the Company in the open market as conditions allow, or in privately negotiated transactions. All or part of the repurchases may be implemented under a Rule 10b5-1 trading plan, which would allow repurchases under pre-set terms at times when the Company might otherwise be prevented from doing so under insider trading laws or because of self-imposed blackout periods. All repurchased shares are held as treasury shares and may be reissued under the Company's 2007 Equity Incentive Plan or for other corporate purposes.
The volume, nature, price and timing of the repurchases are at the sole discretion of management, dependent on market conditions, applicable securities laws, capital and liquidity needs or other factors, and may be suspended or discontinued at any time. The Board of Directors may also suspend, terminate, modify, cancel or extend the Repurchase Program at any time and for any reason.
