AMETEK Announces $1 Billion Share Repurchase Authorization


BERWYN, PA — AMETEK, Inc. (NYSE: AME) announced that its Board of Directors recently approved a $1 billion share repurchase authorization.

The Company states that this authorization replaces an earlier $500 million share repurchase authorization approved by the Board in February 2019, of which approximately $313 million remained available.

“While the primary use of our strong cash flow remains strategic acquisitions, this increased share repurchase authorization provides us with added flexibility to enhance shareholder value through the opportunistic repurchases of our common stock,” commented David A. Zapico, AMETEK Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
