With today’s repurchase of more than 1.1 million shares, Spark has now repurchased the full two million shares authorized under the open market program approved by shareholders in November 2006.

“I am always satisfied when we do what we say we are going to do,” stated Adam Berger, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Spark. “As a result of the recent completion of our Scheme of Arrangement, we were able to raise our share repurchase target by more than 100% to two million shares. In only twelve days from the time we announced, on our quarterly earnings call, that we planned to take advantage of some of the additional flexibility our move to the United States afforded us to repurchase the additional shares, we have been able to achieve our goal.”

Spark completed its Scheme of Arrangement on July 9, 2007 to reorganize in the US, which resulted in the lifting of the UK restrictions on its open market share repurchase program.
