Program Authorizes up to $500 Million of Shares of Class A Common Stock to be Repurchased

Workday, a leader in enterprise cloud applications for finance and human resources, announced that its Board of Directors approved a new share repurchase program with authorization to purchase up to $500 million of shares of its Class A common stock.

“Our investment philosophy remains centered around driving innovation to support long-term profitable growth,” said Barbara Larson, chief financial officer, Workday. “Our scale, combined with the strength of our business model and significant cash flow generation, enables us to continue investing for the long term, while also opportunistically buying back stock through a repurchase program. This program is a direct reflection of our belief that our shares are undervalued, and a demonstration of our confidence in the business and the long-term opportunity ahead.”

The new share repurchase program is designed to reduce the impact of future share dilution from employee stock issuances. Workday may repurchase shares of Class A common stock from time to time through open market purchases, in privately negotiated transactions, or by other means, including through the use of trading plans intended to qualify under Rule 10b5-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, in accordance with applicable securities laws and other restrictions. The timing and total amount of stock repurchases will depend upon business, economic and market conditions, corporate and regulatory requirements, prevailing stock prices, and other considerations. The share repurchase program will have a term of 18 months, may be suspended or discontinued at any time, and does not obligate the company to acquire any amount of Class A common stock.
