WALTHAM, Mass., Sept. 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Lionbridge today announced that its Board of Directors has authorized management to repurchase, with its discretion, up to $12 million of the Company's common stock.

"Today's announcement regarding our share-repurchase program underscores our financial strength and our commitment to increase shareholder value," said Rory Cowan, chief executive officer. "With a market leadership position in a growing industry, a top tier, recurring customer base and improving business fundamentals, we believe Lionbridge is well positioned to take advantage of market opportunities and increase shareholder value."

The Company's share repurchases will be made on the open market, through block trades or otherwise.
