Intel Announces $15 Billion Increase to Stock Repurchase Authorization

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 15, 2018 – Intel Corporation today announced that its board of directors has approved a $15.0 billion increase in its authorized stock repurchase program. The company had $4.7 billion remaining under its existing repurchase authorization as of Sept. 29, 2018.

Under this authorization, Intel is not required to purchase shares, but may choose to do so in the open market or through private transactions at times and amounts determined by the company based on its evaluation of market conditions and other factors.

Intel’s capital allocation strategy remains unchanged. Intel focuses on building value by first investing in itself and growing its capabilities. The company then looks to supplement and strengthen its capabilities through acquisition and strategic investments. Finally, Intel provides the return realized by these investments to its shareholders through its dividend program and opportunistic stock repurchases.

From 1990 through the third-quarter of 2018, Intel has returned approximately $177 billion to stockholders through dividends and stock repurchases.
