Northrop Grumman Buys 9 Million Shares in Accelerated Share Repurchase

Monday, November 07, 2005
Northrop Grumman Corporation has entered into a $500 million accelerated share repurchase (ASR) agreement with Credit Suisse First Boston (CSFB). Under the agreement, the company repurchased 9,066,183 shares of Northrop Grumman common stock from CSFB at a price per share of $55.15. CSFB plans to purchase an equivalent number of shares in the open market, and Northrop Grumman may receive or be required to remit a price adjustment based upon the volume weighted average price of Northrop Grumman common shares purchased by CSFB. Today's repurchase is part of a $1.5 billion share repurchase program announced by Northrop Grumman on Oct. 25, 2005. The company expects to complete the remaining $1 billion of the share repurchase program over the next 12 to 18 months. Including the ASR agreement, the company has repurchased approximately 41.6 million shares of its common stock for $2.2 billion since it began repurchasing its shares in August 2003.
