Accretive Health Announces Share Buyback Plan

Accretive Health, Inc. (NYSE:AH) today announced its Board of Directors has authorized the repurchase of up to $50 Million of the company’s common stock from time to time in the open market, or in privately negotiated transactions.

Mary Tolan, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Accretive Health, said, “We have a strong conviction in our growth prospects and the fundamental strength of our business model. The company has no debt and we are confident in our ability to generate operating cash flow to support continued growth. We believe that the stock represents an attractive value relative to our future outlook and with this authorization, we have the ability to opportunistically make share repurchases as a component of our capital allocation strategy while continuing to invest in future growth opportunities.”

The timing and amount of any shares repurchased will be determined by the company's management based on its evaluation of market conditions and other factors. Repurchases may also be made under a Rule 10b5-1 plan, which would permit shares to be repurchased when the company might otherwise be precluded from doing so under insider trading laws. The repurchase program may be suspended or discontinued at any time. Any repurchased shares will be available for use in connection with its stock plans and for other corporate purposes.

Accretive Health will fund the share repurchases from cash on hand. As of June 30, 2012, the company had approximately $200.9 million of cash and equivalents and 99.4 million shares of common stock outstanding.
