Life Time Fitness Announces New Share Repurchase Program

Life Time Fitness, Inc. (NYSE: LTM), The Healthy Way of Life Company SM, today announced that its board of directors has authorized a share repurchase program under which the Company may repurchase up to $200 million of its outstanding common stock.

The new program replaces a $60 million share repurchase program that was introduced in August 2011 and expired August 17, 2013. Under the former program, the Company has repurchased approximately 1.1 million shares at a total cost of approximately $50 million.

Repurchases under the new program may be made from time to time through open market or privately negotiated transactions. The timing of such transactions depends on a variety of factors, including market conditions, blackout periods, and the terms of trading plans, if any, established in accordance with Securities and Exchange Commission rules.

“We remain focused on accelerating our growth and delivering solid returns,” said Bahram Akradi, chairman, president and chief executive officer. “At the same time, our strong balance sheet and cash flow allow us to establish this new program. In doing so, we have the flexibility to repurchase shares to offset the impact of new share issuances and purchase additional shares opportunistically should business and market conditions warrant.”

The authorization to repurchase shares terminates when the aggregate repurchase amount totals $200 million or at the close of business on August 16, 2015, whichever comes earlier. The share repurchase program does not obligate the company to repurchase any dollar amount or number of shares of its common stock and the program may be extended, modified, suspended or discontinued at any time.
