Tickers in this article: LITB
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- LightInTheBox  has clawed back some gains after a year of shedding share value. The Chinese e-retailer soared 21.1% to $7.69 during the session, eliminating a portion of the 45.3% in losses suffered prior to Monday's gains.

The company was trading higher on the announcement its board had authorized a repurchase program to secure $20 million of its outstanding American Depositary shares through to Dec. 15, 2014.

"The implementation of our share repurchase program reflects the confidence that our board and management have in LITB's growth prospects and operating fundamentals," said LightInTheBox CEO Alan Guo in a statement. "This repurchase program reflects a commitment by our board to enhance value for our shareholders while retaining adequate flexibility for future growth."
