ConocoPhillips Announces Share Repurchase Program

Thursday, August 11, 2005
ConocoPhillips announced a stock repurchase program to repurchase up to $1 billion of the company's common stock over a period of up to two years. This plan is in addition to the existing $1 billion program announced on February 4, 2005, under which the company has repurchased approximately $950 million of its common stock. Consistent with previous guidance, the company will use the new program as a means of offsetting dilution to existing shareholders from the company's stock-based compensation programs. Acquisitions for the share repurchase program will be made at management's discretion at prevailing prices as permitted by securities laws and other legal requirements, and subject to market conditions and other factors. Purchases may be increased, decreased or discontinued at any time without prior notice. Shares of stock repurchased under the plan will be held as treasury shares.
