M2 EQUITYBITES-September 17, 2014-Humana's board approves USD2bn share repurchase programme


The board of directors of Humana (NYSE:HUM), a healthcare company, said on Tuesday that it has authorised the USD2bn share repurchase plan with an expiration date of 31 December 2016.

The company said it may repurchase the shares from time to time, at prevailing prices in the open market, by block purchases or in privately negotiated transactions.

This new share repurchase plan reportedly replaces the company's prior USD1bn share repurchase authorisation, of which USD782m was outstanding after USD118m of share repurchases to date in the Q3 2014.
