American International Industries, Inc. Announces Update On Stock Repurchase Program
HOUSTON and KEMAH, Texas, Feb. 9, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mr. Daniel Dror, Chairman and CEO of American International Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq:AMIN), announced today that the Company has been actively repurchasing shares of its common stock under the repurchase program previously announced. To date, the Company has purchased approximately 60,000 shares under this plan and will continue to repurchase shares, as the Board of Directors believes that the price of the Company's common stock is not a valid reflection of the underlying value of its shares. The Company is limited in its ability to purchase its own shares, due to regulation of stock repurchase programs under the Federal Securities Laws related to volume, price and timing of purchases, and because the Company's shares are thinly traded.
