PLANO, Texas, Aug. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ViewPoint Financial Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: VPFG) (the "Company"), the holding company for ViewPoint Bank, today announced its intention to repurchase up to 5% of its total common shares outstanding, or approximately 1,741,975 shares, in the open market, based on prevailing market prices, over a period beginning on August 30, 2011, continuing until the earlier of the completion of the repurchase or the next twelve months, depending upon market conditions.
