Plantronics Announces 1 Million Share Repurchase Program

Friday, January 25, 2008 5:08 am PST


Santa Cruz, CA
"That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."

Plantronics, Inc., (NYSE: PLT) today announced a 1,000,000 share repurchase program. Pursuant to the Stock Repurchase Program, the Company will, from time to time, purchase shares of its common stock, depending upon market conditions, in open market or privately negotiated transactions.

Barbara Scherer, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Plantronics, noted, “Plantronics continues to generate positive cash flow and we believe it is prudent to use a portion of this cash to increase shareholder value through the repurchase of our stock. We believe that our cash balance and future cash flows will provide sufficient liquidity to support another share repurchase program. We purchase shares when we believe it should be strongly accretive to EPS to do so in comparison to alternative investment choices. Our Board of Directors believes that Plantronics stock presents an attractive investment for the Company and its stockholders,” Scherer concluded.
