“Since August 2013, we have repurchased more than $1 billion of our common shares,” said Larry De Shon, Avis Budget Group Chief Executive Officer. “We remain committed to returning a portion of our cash flow to our shareholders through buybacks, while maintaining a prudent capital structure and flexibility to execute on our strategic initiatives.”
