“Our capital allocation framework emphasizes generating returns on invested capital above our cost of capital, and our share repurchase programs are an important part of that framework,” said Rich Cornetta, ChannelAdvisor’s chief financial officer. “Based on our historical and anticipated free cash flow yield, we felt that our recent share price represented a compelling opportunity, and that executing our buyback was a tax-efficient way to return some of our surplus capital to shareholders. We are debt-free with a strong balance sheet, and our new repurchase authorization is intended to ensure that we continue to have this tool in our capital allocation toolbox going forward.”
