TIBCO Software Announces $300 Million Buyback
TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX) today announced that its Board of Directors has authorized a new share repurchase program pursuant to which the company may repurchase up to $300 million of its outstanding common stock. This program replaces the company's previous $300 million stock repurchase program, under which approximately $27 million was still remaining.
The repurchases under the program will be made in open market or privately negotiated transactions. The manner, timing and amount of any repurchases will be determined by the company based on an evaluation of market conditions, stock price and other factors. The program does not obligate TIBCO to acquire any particular amount of common stock, and it may be modified or suspended at any time at TIBCO's discretion.
