Celanese announces $1.5B share repurchase authorization

Celanese Corporation announced that its board of directors has approved a new $1.5B share repurchase authorization. The new share repurchase authorization represents approximately 11% of the company's shares outstanding. The timing of the buybacks will be partially based on the closing of the recently announced proposed tow joint venture with Blackstone. The company has deployed $300M in the first half of 2017 and is on pace to meet its $500M share buyback commitment for 2017 which would exhaust the existing $1B repurchase authorization put in place in 2015.
