Shutterfly Board Authorizes $100M Share Repurchase Program

Shutterfly, Inc. (NASDAQ:SFLY) today announced that its Board of Directors has approved an increase to its ongoing share repurchase program for an aggregate of up to $100 million. The original share repurchase program was announced in November 2012, and in addition to what has been purchased to date, the Company now expects to utilize an additional $100 million of cash under the expanded program over the next five quarters.

Jeffrey Housenbold, President and CEO, stated: “The Board’s willingness to expand and refresh the repurchase program is a reflection of their confidence in Shutterfly’s business execution, growth and competitiveness. Shutterfly’s strong balance sheet allows us to utilize the expanded share repurchase program, while also maintaining the financial flexibility to operate the business, invest in our future, and pursue attractive strategic growth opportunities. With the Board’s authorization to expand the repurchase plan, we now have availability to repurchase up to $100 million in shares, which we believe represents a prudent and attractive use of our capital, particularly at recent levels.”

Shutterfly intends to finance the share repurchases with cash on hand. The repurchase program authorizes Shutterfly to buy its common stock from time to time through open market, privately negotiated or other transactions, including pursuant to trading plans established in accordance with Rules 10b5-1 and 10b-18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or by a combination of such methods. The share repurchase program is subject to prevailing market conditions and other considerations; does not require Shutterfly to repurchase any dollar amount or number of shares; and may be suspended or discontinued at any time.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is.

An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.
