The board today also authorized $3 billion in additional funds for use in the company’s stock repurchase program. IBM said it will repurchase shares on the open market or in private transactions from time to time, depending on market conditions.

Ginni Rometty, IBM chairman, president and chief executive officer said, "IBM continues to invest in our business for long-term growth, and the company has already invested more than $12 billion in the first three quarters of 2016 to build higher-value offerings. At the same time we remain committed to returning capital to shareholders through both dividends and share repurchase."
