"The Board's decision to expand the stock repurchase program reflects its confidence in the long term growth of the company," said Gideon Wertheizer, CEO of CEVA. "We believe that the repurchase of our common stock is a solid strategic decision to add to shareholder value in light of the level of cash on our balance sheet."

The Company intends to use available cash to effect any stock repurchases. As of March 31, 2010, the Company had approximately 21 million shares of common stock outstanding and $107 million of cash and marketable securities.

Under the share repurchase program, one million shares of the Company's common stock may be repurchased from time to time pursuant to Rule 10(b)-18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act") outside of periods when the Company's trading window is closed. Such repurchases may be made in the open market or through privately negotiated transactions depending on market conditions, share price, trading volume and other factors. The repurchase of the other one million shares of the Company's common stock under the share repurchase program will be made pursuant to a plan in accordance with Rule 10b(5)-1 of the Exchange Act to be established prior to the closing of the Company's trading window.

The share repurchase program, including the Rule 10b(5)-1 plan, may be commenced or suspended at any time or from time to time without prior notice.
