MCKINNEY, Texas, Jan. 23, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Independent Bank Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:IBTX), the holding company for Independent Bank, today announced that the Board of Directors has authorized the repurchase of up to $30 million of its common stock. The Company plans to repurchase its shares in open market transactions from time to time or through privately negotiated transactions, at the Company's discretion.
Commenting on the announcement David R. Brooks, Chairman and CEO, said, "As we continue to execute our growth strategy, both organically and through strategic acquisitions, we believe the adoption of a stock repurchase program provides us with an additional tool with which to enhance stockholder value. We plan to implement the program at such time and price as repurchases are considered beneficial to the Company and its stockholders."

The repurchase program is authorized to continue through December 31, 2015.
