EXCO Resources, Inc. (NYSE: XCO) (“EXCO”) today announced that its Board of Directors has authorized the reinstatement of its share repurchase program that will enable EXCO to purchase up to a total of $200,000,000 of its shares of common stock. EXCO had previously suspended its repurchase program in connection with the former proposal from our Chairman and Chief Executive Officer to purchase all of our outstanding common stock and the special committee’s review of strategic alternatives. Given the termination of the strategic review process, EXCO’s Board of Directors deemed it appropriate to reinstate the program. Prior to the suspension of the program, EXCO had repurchased $7.5 million of its shares of common stock. As a result, $192.5 million remains available for future share repurchases.

Any repurchases would be made in the open market, in privately negotiated transactions or in structured share repurchase programs, and may be made from time to time or in one or more larger repurchases. The program will be conducted in compliance with the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Rule 10b-18 and applicable legal requirements and shall be subject to market conditions and other factors. The program does not obligate EXCO to acquire any common stock, or any particular amount of common stock, and the program may be modified or suspended at any time at EXCO’s discretion. The repurchases would be funded from available cash or borrowings under existing debt facilities.

EXCO Resources, Inc. is an oil and natural gas exploration, exploitation, development and production company headquartered in Dallas, Texas with principal operations in East Texas, North Louisiana, Appalachia and West Texas.
