Wal-Mart board approves another $15 billion in stock buybacks

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark., June 7 (Reuters) - Wal-Mart Stores Inc said on Friday its board approved a new $15 billion stock repurchase program, the first in two years.

As of June 6, Wal-Mart, the world’s largest retailer, had about $712 million remaining under a $15 billion program announced in June 2011.

The repurchase plan was announced by Chief Financial Officer Charles Holley at Wal-Mart’s annual meeting. The company did not announce a repurchase program at the 2012 meeting. At that time it still had $9.7 billion remaining under the 2011 plan.
