Reading time ( words)

KLA Corporation announced that it has entered into accelerated share repurchase agreements (ASRs) with Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC and Citibank N.A. to repurchase $3.0 billion of KLA's common stock. The ASRs were entered into pursuant to KLA's previously announced share repurchase programs, under which approximately $3.233 billion of share repurchase authorization will remain.

Under the ASRs, KLA will make payments in an aggregate amount of $3.0 billion to the Financial Institutions and will receive initial deliveries of approximately 6,549,000 shares of KLA's common stock in the aggregate from the Financial Institutions, with any remaining shares expected to be delivered upon the final settlement under the ASRs, which is scheduled to occur in KLA's second fiscal quarter ending December 31, 2022, subject to earlier termination under certain limited circumstances, as set forth in the ASRs. The final number of shares to be repurchased will be based on the volume-weighted average price of KLA's common stock during the terms of the ASRs less a discount and subject to adjustments pursuant to the terms and conditions of the ASRs.
