BILL (NYSE: BILL), a leader in financial automation software for small and midsize businesses (SMBs), today announced that its Board of Directors approved a share repurchase program with authorization to purchase up to $300 million of BILL’s common stock.
“The share repurchase program demonstrates our confidence in the strength of our business and our ability to capture the large market opportunity ahead of us,” said John Rettig, BILL CFO. “With our strong balance sheet and cash flow generation, we are well positioned to invest for our future growth prospects while also returning capital to shareholders and minimizing dilution.”
BILL may repurchase shares of its common stock from time to time through open market purchases, in privately negotiated transactions, or by other means, including through the use of trading plans intended to qualify under Rule 10b5-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, in accordance with applicable securities laws and other restrictions. The timing and total amount of stock repurchases will depend upon business, economic and market conditions, corporate and regulatory requirements, prevailing stock prices, and other considerations. The share repurchase program will have a term of 12 months, may be suspended or discontinued at any time, and does not obligate the company to acquire any amount of common stock.
The Company has provided additional information about the share repurchase in the Form 8-K filed on February 2, 2023 with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
