Beacon Announces Additional $225 Million Accelerated Share Repurchase Program

May 10, 2024

Beacon (Nasdaq: BECN) announced today that it has entered into an accelerated share repurchase agreement (“ASR”) with Citibank N.A to repurchase $225 million of Beacon’s common stock.

“Creating shareholder value is central to today’s announcement to continue share repurchases under our previously announced and authorized program,” said Julian Francis, President & CEO of Beacon. “We continue to pursue our balanced capital allocation plan investing in growth and returns to shareholders. Our Ambition 2025 plan has demonstrated our ability to do both and, at the same time, deliver on margin improvement and cash flow. This ASR further emphasizes our confidence in the resiliency of our business model and our team’s strong execution.”

Under the ASR, Beacon will make a pre-payment of $225 million to Citibank, N.A and will initially receive a prorated quantity of Beacon’s common stock. The final number of shares to be repurchased will be based on the daily volume-weighted average price of Beacon’s common stock during the term of the ASR, less a discount and subject to adjustments pursuant to the terms of the ASR. The final settlement of the ASR is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2024.
