TINTON FALLS, N.J., Dec. 18, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Two River Bancorp (Nasdaq:TRCB), (the "Company"), the parent company of Two River Community Bank ("Two River"), today announced that its Board of Directors has approved a new Share Repurchase Program. Under this new program, the Company may repurchase up to $2.0 million of its common stock from January 1, 2015 to December 31, 2015.
Under its previous Share Repurchase Programs, the Company repurchased approximately 227,612 shares and spent $1,751,249.
William D. Moss, President and CEO, stated, "The Company has a consistent track record of delivering value to our shareholders in terms of stock price appreciation, dividend payments, and share repurchases. Since the initiation of our share repurchase programs, we have purchased nearly $1.8 million of our common stock. The Company's strong capital position, profitability level, and credit quality support these activities, and today's approval of our previously announced 2015 stock buyback program reflects our continued commitment to capital returns."
The new Share Repurchase Program will commence after the release of the Company's results of operations for the period ending December 31, 2014 and until the earlier of the completion of the repurchase or December 31, 2015. Under the 2015 Share Repurchase Program, repurchases will be 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 Share Repurchase Program at any time and for any reason.
