Our share repurchases were lower this quarter, as we were out of the market for six weeks due to the recapitalization. But, we remain committed to repurchases at the Liberty Interactive Group and the board of directors has increased our repurchase authorization by $1 billion.”

LIBERTY INTERACTIVE GROUP - Liberty Interactive Group’s revenue increased 3% to $2.2 billion in the third quarter, adjusted OIBDA increased 5% to $397 million and operating income decreased 14% to $193 million. The increase in revenue was due to favorable results at QVC and the eCommerce companies. The increase in adjusted OIBDA for the quarter was due to favorable results at QVC, which was offset by unfavorable results at the eCommerce companies.
