Macy’s May More Than Double Share Repurchases

Friday, 07 Dec 2012 04:43 PM

Macy’s Inc. authorized a $1.5 billion increase in share repurchases which could lead to the retailer more than doubling the dollar amount of stock it has purchased since 2011.

Macy’s, the second-largest U.S. department-store chain, said its board’s decision would bring its total outstanding authorization to $1.86 billon, according to a statement Friday. Since resuming share repurchases in August 2011, Macy’s had acquired $1.49 billion worth of shares as of Oct. 27.

Chief Executive Officer Terry Lundgren said the chain is committed to using its excess cash to enhance shareholder value. Today’s increase reflects the company’s confidence in its ability to deliver sales growth, he said.

The shares rose 1.3 percent to $39.41 at the close in New York. Cincinnati-based Macy’s has climbed 22 percent this year.
