In commenting on the repurchase plan, Marc Zandman, VPG’s Chairman of the Board said, “This authorization reflects our commitment to maximize long-term value for our stockholders by strategically allocating our capital.

Under the plan authorized by its Board of Directors, the Company may repurchase shares in open market purchases or through privately negotiated transactions, subject to market and business conditions, legal requirements, and other factors.
