VMware, Inc. : VMware Announces Authorization of Stock Repurchase Program

11/29/2012 | 09:27am EST

PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/29/12 -- VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW), the global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure, today announced that its Board of Directors has authorized the purchase of up to $250 million of its Class A common stock through the end of 2014. Stock will be purchased from time to time, in the open market or through private transactions, subject to market conditions. The Company expects the equity purchase program to help partially offset dilution from its equity programs.

The new stock repurchase authorization is in addition to the Company's ongoing $600 million stock repurchase program, originally announced February 29, 2012.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements including, among other things, statements regarding the value of shares repurchased through our stock repurchase programs and the duration of such programs. Actual results could differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements as a result of certain risk factors, including but not limited to: (i) fluctuations and volatility in our stock price; (ii) the impact of macroeconomic conditions on customer demand, (iii) changes in our financial condition, (iv) changes in business opportunities and priorities that could cause us to consider alternative uses of cash, and (v) the level of proceeds from employee stock option exercises and our employee stock purchase plan. These forward-looking statements are based on current expectations and are subject to uncertainties and changes in condition, significance, value and effect as well as other risks detailed in documents filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our most recent reports on Form 10-K and Form 10-Q and current reports on Form 8-K that we may file from time to time, which could cause actual results to vary from expectations. VMware assumes no obligation to, and does not currently intend to, update any such forward-looking statements after the date of this release.
