Rockwood Board Of Directors Authorize New Share Repurchase Of Up To $500 Million

Rockwood Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ROC) today announced that its Board of Directors has authorized a new share repurchase program of up to $500 million to be completed over two years. This program is in addition to the $400 million share repurchase program recently completed in the third quarter 2013.

Seifi Ghasemi, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “As is consistent with our guiding principle to deliver continued long term shareholder value and a disciplined approach to redeploying our excess cash on hand, we are pleased to announce this new $500 million share repurchase authorization, which in addition to our quarterly cash dividends, continues our commitment for an ongoing return of capital to shareholders.”

Repurchases under the program may be made through one or more open market transactions, unsolicited or solicited privately negotiated transactions, accelerated share repurchase programs or other derivative transactions, self tender offers, or through any combination of the foregoing, or in such other manner as determined by the Company. The timing of the repurchases and the actual amount repurchased will depend on a variety of factors, including the market price of the Company's shares, general market and economic conditions, and other factors. The share repurchase program may be extended, suspended or discontinued at any time without notice.
