Netflix to repurchase $100 million stocks

MUMBAI: Netflix has announced that its Board of Directors has authorized a stock repurchase program that enables the company to purchase up to $100 million of its common stock through the end of 2008. 

Stock repurchases under this program may be made through open market transactions and, from time to time, privately negotiated transactions with third parties, and in such amounts as management deems appropriate.  

The timing and actual number of shares repurchased will depend on a variety of factors including price, corporate and regulatory requirements, alternative investment opportunities and other market conditions. Repurchased shares would be returned to the status of authorized but un-issued shares of common stock.
