BIOLASE Announces Stock Repurchase Program

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 10, 2011) - BIOLASE Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: BLTI), the World's leading dental laser manufacturer and distributor, today announced that its Board of Directors has approved a stock repurchase program of up to 2,000,000 shares of the Company's outstanding common stock.

The stock repurchase program will be effective commencing on the business day following the filing of the Company's quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 with the Securities and Exchange Commission and will expire on the same day 24 months thereafter. Purchases may be made from time to time through a variety of methods, including open market purchases, privately negotiated transactions, and block transactions. The Company has no obligation to repurchase shares under the stock repurchase program, and the timing, actual number, and value of the shares that are repurchased will be at the discretion of the Company's management and will depend upon a number of considerations, including the trading price of the Company's common stock, general market conditions, applicable legal requirements, and other factors. The Company expects to fund the stock repurchase program with existing cash and cash equivalents on hand. Any shares repurchased will be retired and shall resume the status of authorized and unissued shares.

Federico Pignatelli, Chairman and CEO, said, "The management and the Board of Directors believe that the use of BIOLASE's capital has to be based on flexibility and opportunity. I see great value in repurchasing shares when irrational valuations occur."
