On August 20, 2015, Teradata Corporation (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing that the Board of Directors of the Company had authorized the repurchase of up to an additional $500 million of the Company’s shares through August 20, 2018 under its general open market share repurchase program, incremental to the amount still remaining under the current share repurchase program authorization that expires on December 15, 2017.
