Vanguard Natural Resources announced that its Board of Directors authorized a $10M common unit buyback program. The program was approved for an initial three month period which authorizes the company to make open market purchases pursuant to the SEC guidelines of Rule 10B-18. The company intends to hold the common units to fund the company’s long-term incentive plan as directed by the Compensation Committee. Executive Vice-President & CFO, Richard A.
