HOUSTON, May 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Deep Down, Inc. (OTCQX: DPDW) ("Deep Down" or the "Company"), an oilfield services company specializing in complex deepwater and ultra-deepwater oil production distribution system support services, today announced its Board of Directors has authorized the repurchase of up to $1 million in shares of the Company's common stock. The repurchase program will be funded from cash on hand and cash provided by operating activities.
Ronald E. Smith, Chief Executive Officer, stated "We believe the Company is undervalued as a result of the current industry condition.
