SALT LAKE CITY, Feb. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ClearOne (NASDAQ: CLRO) today
announced that the company's Board of Directors has approved an increase in
the company's stock repurchase program from $3.0 million to $10.0 million of
its outstanding shares of common stock. Under the initial program implemented
May 16, 2012, ClearOne was authorized to repurchase up to $2 million of its
outstanding shares of common stock from time to time over a twelve-month
period. On July 30, 2012, the Board of Directors increased the amount
approved for repurchase from $2.0 million to $3.0 million. The Board approval
on February 20, 2013 increases the amount the company may repurchase from $3.0
million to $10.0 million in open market or privately negotiated transactions
depending on prevailing market conditions and other factors. All purchases
will be executed in accordance with applicable federal securities laws.

"We believe our current stock price does not reflect our intrinsic value and
the growth opportunities available to us. Our comfortable cash balance will
support our decision to invest in ourselves by increasing the volume of the
repurchase program," said Zee Hakimoglu, President, Chief Executive Officer
and Chairman of ClearOne.
