"This increase in the authorization to repurchase shares under our buyback program provides additional flexibility to the Company as it continues to evaluate its available, alternative uses of capital in terms of those that will create the highest return for stockholders," said Mark Schwarz, Executive Chairman of Hallmark.

Any purchases under the stock repurchase program may be made from time to time in privately negotiated transactions or in the open market, through block trades or otherwise. The timing of purchases will be dependent upon market conditions and other corporate considerations. These purchases may be commenced or suspended at any time or from time to time without prior notice and the stock repurchase program may be modified, extended or terminated by the Board of Directors at any time. Repurchased shares will be held as treasury stock, and will be available for use in connection with the Company's long term incentive plan or for other corporate purposes, as determined by the Board of Directors.  As of January 24, 2011, the Company had 20,124,169 shares of common stock outstanding.
