07:04 EDTDALDelta Air Lines to return additional $6B to shareholders through 2017
Delta's board announced a new $5B share repurchase program, to be completed no later than December 31, 2017. In addition, the company's quarterly dividend will increase by 50% to 13.5c per share beginning in the September 2015 quarter. These two programs are expected to return more than $6B to shareholders through 2017. The company also announced that it is on track to complete the remaining $725M of its prior $2 billion share repurchase authorization by June 30. When this authorization is completed, Delta will have returned a total of $3B in dividends and share repurchases since announcing its initial program two years ago. Going forward, the company intends to return at least 50% of free cash flow to shareholders through 2017. The new $5B repurchase authorization and 50% increase to the quarterly dividend approved by Delta's board are expected to return more than $6B to shareholders through 2017. Delta ended the March 2015 quarter with $7.4B of adjusted net debt, a reduction of $2B since the end of 2013 and roughly $10B since the company began its debt reduction efforts in 2009. The company has set a target to achieve and maintain $4B of adjusted net debt by year end 2017. This debt level is expected to result in annual net interest expense of ~$200M, a $1.1B reduction compared to 2009. Since 2009, Delta has increased its pension plan assets by $1.7 billion, net of $5.2 billion in distributions, through a combination of contributions and asset returns. The company plans to maintain its current $1 billion annual funding level through 2020, with a goal of achieving 80% funded status by that date. Delta made a one-time additional $200M contribution in 2015, for a total contribution of $1.2B for the year, to keep the company on track to achieve its 2020 target.
