Bio-Reference Laboratories (BRLI) Announces Stock Buy-Back Plan


11/14/2011 8:48:01 AM

ELMWOOD PARK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Bio-Reference Laboratories, Inc. (NASDAQ: BRLI - News) announced today that its board of directors has approved a Stock Repurchase Program authorizing the repurchase of up to 1,000,000 shares of its Common Stock in the over-the-counter market at prevailing market prices through October 31, 2012. The board of directors believes that BRLI’s common stock is currently undervalued and that a Repurchase Program of this nature constitutes an appropriate investment that will benefit BRLI’s stockholders. Company fundamentals have been and continue to remain strong. The company will commence its buyback once it reaches its next open period that will be after the announcement of its fourth quarter earnings in mid December 2011.

Dr. Marc Grodman, President and CEO states, “The company has been under attack from short sellers – who have promoted claims based largely on inaccuracies, half truths and complete fabrications through their own scurrilous blog site – and the latest market activity on the stock is a reflection of that. The company consistently has posted 20% gains in profits and revenue growth year to year and will successfully weather this attack through continued strong results. We have recently announced an extension of our Financing arrangements with PNC Bank through 2016 and we are confident in the future of the Company.”
