Bristol Myers Squibb (NYSE: BMY) today announced that on December 6, 2023, its Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of an additional $3 billion of the company’s common stock under the company’s multi-year share repurchase program.

With this increase, the company’s total outstanding share repurchase authorization is approximately $5 billion. The program enables management to execute repurchases at its discretion.
