Arrow Electronics Announces Additional $200M Share Buyback
Arrow Electronics, Inc. (NYSE: ARW) announced today the approval by the
company's Board of Directors of the repurchase of up to an additional
$200 million of common stock through a share repurchase program. The
company has spent approximately $900 million on share repurchases since
the beginning of 2010.
This action will permit the company to continue repurchasing shares of
its common stock as market and business conditions warrant. The program
can be terminated at any time. The company may enter into Rule 10b5-1
plans to facilitate repurchases under the program. A Rule 10b5-1 plan
would generally permit the company to repurchase shares at times when it
might otherwise be prevented from doing so under certain securities laws.
