Qualcomm May Repurchase up to $5 Billion of Shares

Wednesday, 11 Sep 2013 09:30 PM

Qualcomm says its board has approved a $5 billion stock repurchase program.

The San Diego-based wireless chipmaker said Wednesday that it's replacing a $5 billion program announced on March 5. Since July 24, the company has repurchased about 40.1 million shares of common stock for $2.7 billion. Buying back company stock can help support earnings per share and offset the effect of paying employees in stock.

Qualcomm CEO Paul Jacobs says the company plans to further discuss its capital plans at its analyst day in November.

Qualcomm stock is up 60 cents to $68.69 in after-hours trading. Shares closed Wednesday at $68.09 and are up 10 percent this year.
