09:28 EDTTAT&T approves new 300M share repurchase authorization
The board of directors of AT&T authorized the repurchase of up to 300 million shares, representing approximately 6% of AT&T common shares outstanding, with no expiration date. This authorization is in addition to three other 300 million share repurchase authorizations approved by the board of directors in December 2010, July 2012 and March 2013. The company completed repurchases under the 2012 share authorization last year. “The board’s authorization reaffirms our confidence in the strength of the business and our commitment to returning value to our shareholders while investing in our networks and operations,” said Randall Stephenson, AT&T chairman and CEO. Under the March 2013 300 million share authorization, AT&T repurchased about 175 million of its shares through March 28, 2014. Since the company began buying back shares in 2012, AT&T has repurchased 775 million of its shares, or approximately 13% of shares outstanding. The company expects to maintain a net-debt-to-adjusted-EBITDA ratio in the 1.8 range or lower. Future repurchase decisions will be made opportunistically.
