Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. announced that its Board of Directors has authorized a new $2.0 billion share repurchase program. The Company expects that the new share repurchase program will commence after the completion of its existing share repurchase program, which, as of May 31, 2014 had approximately $861 million remaining. The Company is currently planning that the new share repurchase program will be completed during fiscal 2016. Since 2004 through the fiscal first quarter of 2014, the Company has returned approximately $6.6 billion to its shareholders through share repurchases.
 
"Our Board authorized this new share repurchase program based upon its continued confidence in our Company's long-term growth potential, financial outlook and cash flow generation. We also believe this is an opportune time, and method, to return value to our shareholders.
 
"In addition to providing value to our shareholders through share repurchase programs, our strong operations should allow us to continue to invest in our infrastructure and maintain our ability to take advantage of opportunities as they may arise," said Steven Temares, Chief Executive Officer and Member of the Board of Directors.
 
The repurchases may be effected in the open market, through accelerated repurchase and other negotiated transactions, including through plans designed to comply with Rule 10b5-1(c) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. It is contemplated that funding for the new program would be from operating cash flow as well as various financing alternatives.
 
The Company also announced that it has filed a registration statement on Form S-3 with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
 
Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. and subsidiaries (the "Company") is a retailer which operates under the names Bed Bath & Beyond, Christmas Tree Shops, Christmas Tree Shops andThat! or andThat!, Harmon or Harmon Face Values, buybuy BABY and World Market, Cost Plus World Market or Cost Plus. Customers can purchase products from the Company either in store, online or through a mobile device.
