Polycom Announces $400 Million Return Of Capital Program

The Company expects to utilize the remaining approximately $150 million of the new $400 million share repurchase authorization for open market share repurchases or privately negotiated transactions. Polycom has repurchased $84 million of common stock in the first and second quarters of 2013. All buybacks are expected to be completed within one year.

This $400 million share repurchase authorization will supersede any remaining outstanding share repurchase authorization as of the commencement of the tender offer. The Company’s remaining repurchase authorization was $89 million as of June 30, 2013. The repurchases will be made in compliance with, and at such times as permitted by, federal securities law. As of June 30, 2013, the Company had approximately $694 million of cash and investments.

The tender offer described in this release has not yet commenced. This press release is for informational purposes only and is not an offer to buy or the solicitation of an offer to sell any shares of common stock. The solicitation and offer to buy common stock will only be made pursuant to the offer to purchase and the other tender offer documents, which are expected to be distributed to stockholders on or about September 13, 2013. A free copy of the tender offer documents that will be filed by Polycom with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) may be obtained when filed from the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov or from Polycom’s website at www.polycom.com. In addition, stockholders will be able to obtain a free copy of the tender offer documents, when available, from the information agent named in the offer to purchase. Stockholders are urged to read these materials, when available, carefully prior to making any decision with respect to the offer.
