Extreme Networks Announces New $200M Share Repurchase Program


Extreme Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXTR), a leader in cloud networking, today announced that its Board of Directors has authorized an increase to our share repurchase authorization to $200 million over a three-year period beginning in the company's upcoming fiscal year commencing July 1, 2022.

The new authorization reflects Extreme's commitment to a capital allocation policy that offsets dilution from equity incentive programs to maintain a neutral share count.

Quarter to date, the company has repurchased $20 million worth of shares at an average price of $9.74, leaving a remaining $10 million authorization from the prior plan. The new authorization replaces the previous one from February 2020.

Remi Thomas, Extreme CFO said, "This buyback authorization, which is the largest ever in company history, reflects our confidence in Extreme's ability to execute on our long-term strategy and generate accelerated earnings and cash flow on a go forward basis. It also affords us to opportunistically return capital to shareholders."
