Del Frisco's Restaurant Group, Inc. Announces Fourth Quarter & Fiscal Year 2013 Results

Stock Repurchase

During the fourth quarter of 2013, the Company repurchased 196,500 shares of common stock for approximately $3.7 million under the $10 million authority provided by our Board of Directors. As previously communicated, this authority for up to $10 million will be utilized for the repurchase of our common stock in order to offset dilution caused by the issuance and exercise of stock options and other equity compensation.
