Veritiv Increases Stock Repurchase Program by $50 Million, Expanding the Total to $100 Million


ATLANTA, May 24, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Veritiv Corporation (NYSE: VRTV), a full-service provider of business-to-business distribution solutions and services, announced today its Board of Directors has approved an increase in the size of the Company's existing stock repurchase program from $50 million to $100 million. After accounting for shares repurchased to date, the Company currently has approximately $71 million remaining under the expanded program.

"Our continued earnings momentum and strong balance sheet allow us to increase our stock repurchase program," said Sal Abbate, Chief Executive Officer. "Having already repurchased nearly $29 million of shares this year, management and our Board of Directors believe the timing is right to expand the program. We continue to believe the repurchase of our stock is the best use of capital at this time."

Under the increased repurchase authorization, the Company may, from time to time, purchase shares of its common stock through open market purchases, privately negotiated transactions, accelerated repurchase programs, tender offers or otherwise, including Rule 10b5-1 trading plans, in accordance with applicable securities laws and regulations. The timing and method of any repurchases, which will depend on a variety of factors, including market conditions, are subject to results of operations, financial conditions, cash requirements and other factors. This increased repurchase authorization does not obligate the Company to purchase a specific number of shares or to make purchases by a specific date, and may be suspended, terminated, increased or decreased by the Board of Directors at any time.
