Abraxis BioScience Announces $100 Million Share Repurchase Program

Los Angeles, CA | Posted on April 20th, 2009

"The company's authorization of a share repurchase program reflects our continued confidence in the future of the business," said Patrick Soon-Shiong, M.D., chairman and chief executive officer of Abraxis BioScience. "We believe our shares are undervalued and that our strong financial position makes the purchase of our own shares a sound investment at this time."

Share repurchases, if any, will be funded by internal cash resources and will be made through open market purchases. The timing, volume and nature of share repurchases are subject to market prices and conditions, applicable securities laws and other factors, and are at the discretion of company management. Share repurchases may be commenced, suspended or discontinued at any time without prior notice.
