Dollar General Corporation announced the completion of $200 million in share repurchases of its common stock in the open market.

"The strength of our balance sheet coupled with our strong cash flow generation makes this an opportune time to return cash to our shareholders. We are committed to optimizing our capital structure, while increasing shareholder value," said Rick Dreiling, Dollar General's chairman and CEO.

These repurchases are part of the existing Board authorized share repurchase program. Year-to-date, Dollar General has repurchased approximately $220 million of its common stock and has approximately $424 million remaining in the existing authorization.

Dollar General has repurchased approximately $1.1 billion, or 23.6 million shares, of its common stock since the inception of its current share repurchase program in December 2011.
