BFC Financial Corporation Announces Board Approval of Share Repurchase Program

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - September 22, 2009) - BFC Financial Corporation (PINKSHEETS: BFCF) announced today that its board of directors has approved a share repurchase program which authorizes the repurchase of up to 20,000,000 shares of Class A and Class B Common Stock at an aggregate cost of no more than $10 million. This program replaces the $10 million share repurchase program that BFC's board of directors approved in October 2006 which placed a cap on the number of shares which could be repurchased under the program at 1,750,000 shares of Class A Common Stock. BFC previously repurchased 100,000 shares of Class A Common Stock at an aggregate cost of $54,000 under the prior program.
