BUFFALO, N.Y., Jan. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CTG (Nasdaq: CTGX), an international information technology (IT) solutions and services company, today announced that it extended a stock repurchase plan under Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "Company 10b5-1 Plan") to facilitate the repurchase of its common stock. The Company has approximately 550,000 shares available for repurchase as of December 31, 2009, under its outstanding repurchase authorizations.
"We are again extending our 10b5-1 plan as it gives us the ability to repurchase shares during our self-imposed blackout periods prior to the announcement of quarterly results," said CTG Chairman and Chief Executive Officer James R. Boldt.
The plan is effective from January 7, 2010, until the day following the Company's release of its 2009 fourth quarter and full year financial results. CTG's 10b5-1 plan allows for the repurchase of shares during the time following the close of a quarter and the announcement of quarterly financial results when the Company's stock repurchase policy does not allow for the direct purchase of shares by the Company. Repurchases are subject to SEC regulations as well as certain price, market, volume, and timing constraints specified in the plan. The plan does not require that any shares be purchased.
