Read Time2 Minute, 9 Second

Workday, Inc. (NASDAQ: WDAY), a leader in enterprise cloud applications for finance and human resources, today 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.

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.

The company also announced results for the fiscal 2023 third quarter ended October 31, 2022.
