Item 8.01. Other Events.
On January 17, 2017, Adobe issued a press release announcing that its Board of Directors has approved a new stock repurchase program granting the Company authority to repurchase up to $2.5 billion in common stock through the end of fiscal 2019. A copy of this press release is furnished and attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
Under our new stock repurchase program, which is designed to return value to our stockholders and minimize dilution from stock issuances, we may repurchase shares in the open market and also enter into structured repurchase agreements with third parties. The new stock repurchase program approved by our Board of Directors is substantially similar to our previous program authorizing the repurchase of up to $2.0 billion in common stock through fiscal 2017.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
