MORTON GROVE, Ill., Nov. 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Lifeway Foods, Inc., (Nasdaq: LWAY), makers of a nutritious, probiotic dairy beverage called Kefir, announced today Lifeway's Board of Directors approved a new share repurchase program of up to 100,000 shares. Under such a program, Lifeway Foods may repurchase up to 100,000 shares of the Company's Common Stock through the open market within a period of one year from the date of the first purchase. The Company will use its available cash resources to fund the stock repurchase program.

Julie Smolyansky, Lifeway's CEO, commented, "We are very pleased that our Board of Directors has approved this share repurchase program. This new 100,000 share approval demonstrates our continuing commitment to growth and enhancing shareholder value. This buyback will be funded through our internal operating cash flows. In December the cost of milk, our largest input cost, decreased to the lowest level in 24 months, and this will only serve to continue to bolster our already strong cash position and balance sheet."
