Butterfield $125M Share Repurchase Program

December 3, 2019

In a filing with the Bermuda Stock Exchange, The Bank of Butterfield announced that has approved a new $125 million ordinary share repurchase program.

The filing stated: “The Bank of N.T. Butterfield & Son Limited [Butterfield] today announced that its Board of Directors has approved a new $125 million ordinary share repurchase program [Program] pursuant to which the Bank is authorized to purchase up to 3.5 million ordinary shares of the Bank through February 28, 2021.

Michael Collins, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer said: “Having the flexibility to repurchase shares is an important aspect of our capital management strategy, complementing our quarterly cash dividend payments and maintaining the ability to support organic growth and make strategic acquisitions in our core markets. We see significant value in repurchasing Butterfield shares and appreciate the confidence and support of the Board with this new authorization.”

“The timing and amount of any share repurchases will be determined by Bank management based on its evaluation of market conditions and other factors that include, but are not limited to Butterfield’s share price and the availability of alternative capital investments. Repurchases under the new share repurchase program may be made in the open market or through privately negotiated transactions, including under US SEC Rule 10b5-1 plans, and will be made in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.

“This new Program will come into effect following the completion of the current 2.5 million share repurchase authorization that was announced on December 6, 2018, which currently has approximately 225,000 shares remaining.”
