Chevron announces $75 billion stock buyback, dividend boost
Energy giant Chevron
Shares of Chevron were up 3% in extended trading.
The buyback program will become effective on April 1, with no set expiration date, the company said in a press release.
Chevron’s market cap was roughly $350 billion as on Wednesday’s market close, meaning that the buyback would represent more than 20% of the company’s stock at current prices.
This buyback plan follows a $25 billion plan enacted in 2019. The old plan will be terminated at the end of March.
