TeleTech Announces Increased Authorization Of $25 Million For Share Repurchases

TeleTech Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTEC), a leading global provider of technology-enabled customer engagement and experience solutions, today announced that its Board of Directors has approved an additional authorization of $25 million for share repurchases.

During 2011, TeleTech’s strong cash flow from operations and positive net cash position enabled the repurchase of 3.4 million shares of common stock for a total cost of approximately $64 million.

“The Board’s support of our ongoing share repurchase program demonstrates its continued confidence in the company’s future growth strategy,” said Kenneth Tuchman, TeleTech chairman and chief executive officer. “TeleTech’s solid cash flow from operations continues to provide the capital necessary to invest in strategies that return value to shareholders, including share repurchases and strategic acquisitions.”

As of December 31, 2011, under the previous authorization approved by the Board, total funding available for share repurchases was approximately $32 million. With today’s announcement of an increased $25 million to the authorization, there was approximately $57 million authorized for future share repurchases as of December 31, 2011.

The stock repurchase authorization does not have an expiration date and the pace of repurchase activity will depend on factors such as levels of cash generation from operations, current stock price and other factors.
