COLUMBIA, Md., Aug. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Global performance improvement solutions provider GP Strategies Corporation (NYSE: GPX) announced today that its Board of Directors has authorized a $5 million share repurchase program. GP Strategies' share repurchase program allows management, at its discretion, to repurchase shares from time to time in the open market subject to market conditions and other factors.
