Innodata Isogen also announced that its board of directors has authorized the repurchase of up to $2.1 million of its common stock in open market or private transactions. The timing and nature of repurchases are subject to market and business conditions and applicable securities laws. Depending on market conditions and other factors, these repurchases may be commenced or suspended from time to time without prior notice. The repurchase authorization replaces a $2.0 million authorization made in May 2008 under which the company bought approximately 606,000 shares for approximately $1.9 million.

“At every level, our organization has been focused on recovering from the operating issues that impacted us earlier in 2010,” said Jack Abuhoff, Chairman and CEO of Innodata Isogen. “We continue to see that publishers and other enterprise customers have a real need for the kinds of editorial and production services that Innodata Isogen is known for, and I remain confident that we are taking the necessary steps to resume growth and address our market opportunity over time.

“Our board’s decision to authorize the share repurchase program underscores their confidence in our market opportunity and long-term strategy. At the same time, we continue to benefit from a strong balance sheet that will support continued investment in our business.”
