DALLAS, March 20, 2013
DALLAS, March 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Cambium Learning Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:
ABCD, the "Company"), the leading educational company focused primarily on
serving the needs of at-risk and special student populations, announced that
its board of directors has terminated its Rule10b5-1 plan (the "Plan") with
Robert W. Baird & Company, Inc. under which the Company may repurchase its
shares at times when the Company might otherwise be precluded from doing so
under insider trading laws. The Plan had been established in June 2012
pursuant to, and as part of, the Company's $5 million share repurchase program
approved by its board of directors in May 2012. The Company will continue its
overall share repurchase program, which has been extended for an additional
year to enable the Company to purchase shares of its common stock through July
5, 2014. The Company's board of directors has also approved an increase of
the funds available to the share repurchases to an amount equal to $5 million.
"The Board continues to believe in the value of the Company and holds strong
to its commitment to creating long-term value for our shareholders, said Joe
Walsh, Chairman of Cambium Learning Group. The Board has determined that a
replenishment of cash available for the repurchase program is well invested in
the Company's common stock at current market prices, and we are pleased that
the continued strength of our balance sheet allows us to extend the program."
The Company expects to continue to purchase the shares of common stock from
time to time in private transactions, in accordance with applicable insider
trading and other securities laws and regulations, at negotiated prices.
