HARBIN, China, Oct. 9 /Xinhua-PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- China Yingxia International, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: CYXI) ("China Yingxia" or "the Company"), a leading provider in the health and nutritional food industry engaged in the development, manufacture and distribution of nutritional food products, dietary supplements, and raw cactus plants in the People's Republic of China ("PRC"), today announced that the Board of Directors of the Company has approved and authorized a share repurchase program for up to $2 million of its common stock.
China Yingxia will repurchase shares on the open market or through privately negotiated transactions through September 30, 2009, in compliance with the rules and regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The final number of shares repurchased and the timing of the purchases will depend on market conditions, share price, applicable legal requirements, and other factors deemed appropriate by the Board of Directors. The repurchase program may be discontinued or expanded by the Board of Directors in the future.
The repurchases will be funded with available cash on hand. As of August 14, 2008, the Company had 44.5 million common shares outstanding and approximately 10.9 million freely traded shares. Any shares repurchased by the Company in this program will reduce the number common shares outstanding.
"Our strong balance sheet provides us with the opportunity to return value to our shareholders through a stock repurchase program without impacting our ability to engage in new investments for future growth. We have recently completed the most capital intensive phase of our growth plan by increasing production capacity. Now we will focus on expanding our franchisee-based distribution network and product offerings," said Ms. Yinxia Jiao, CEO and Chairwoman of China Yingxia. "We expect our cash position to further improve in the near future due to profitable operations, reduction in inventory and collection of receivables toward the end of the year. While our third quarter financial results have not been finalized, initial feedback from our sales department is positive. We remain confident in our competitive position in China's growing health and nutritional foods market," she added.
