Energy Recovery Inc Board Authorizes Stock Repurchase Program Of Up To Five Million Shares Over The Next 12 Months

Energy Recovery Inc (NASDAQ:ERII), a leader in the design and development of energy recovery devices for desalination and other industrial processes, today announced that its board of directors has authorized a stock repurchase program under which up to 5,000,000 shares of its outstanding common stock may be acquired in the open market over the next 12 months at the discretion of management.

The shares may be purchased from time to time at prevailing market prices, through open market or privately negotiated transactions. The actual number of shares that ERI will repurchase will depend on market conditions and other factors, and ERI may discontinue purchases at any time should management determine that additional purchases are not warranted. As of June 30, 2011, ERI had approximately 52.6 million shares outstanding.

“Utilizing our strong balance sheet and unique liquidity position, we believe that this stock repurchase program appropriately complements our long-term strategy to enhance shareholder value,” stated Thomas S. Rooney, chief executive officer of Energy Recovery Inc. “ERI enjoys a net cash position of about $50 million, and in the context of our current stock valuation, this program represents an attractive investment opportunity for the company, particularly when coupled with other strategic investments pending evaluation.”
