Intuit Extends Stock Repurchase Program
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – Aug. 19, 2010 – Intuit Inc.'s (Nasdaq: INTU) board of directors has approved a new $2 billion stock repurchase program, which is authorized through August 2013.
The company's previous repurchase program concluded in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2010, which ended on July 31. Intuit repurchased $150 million in shares in the fourth quarter, bringing total purchases to $900 million during the fiscal year.
"We always seek to deploy the cash we generate to the highest-yield opportunities," said Neil Williams, Intuit's chief financial officer. "Our first priorities are growth investments in products, marketing and infrastructure. We then consider strategic acquisitions and partnerships. Beyond that, we will return cash to shareholders through stock repurchases. We do not expect to use the entire authorization in fiscal 2011. The three-year window gives us the flexibility to maintain an active stock repurchase program while also investing for growth."
