康菲石油2021年股份回购计划正在进行中,总额为15亿美元

下载pdf格式

康菲石油公司(NYSE: COP)今天宣布恢复其股票回购计划,年化水平为15亿美元,与2020年第四季度的回购水平相比增长了50%,当时该计划因Concho交易而暂停。该公司预计将在2021年的所有四个季度中合理地执行该计划。基于该公司当前对2021年商品价格的展望,这种水平的股票回购,加上普通股息,反映了其长期以来的优先选择,即每年向股东返还超过30%的运营现金。

该公司董事长兼首席执行官瑞安•兰斯(Ryan Lance)表示:“虽然现在仍是新年伊始,但大宗商品价格已经走强,我们单凭派息可能不足以实现资本回报。”“我们会密切监察环境,并保留酌情调整股份回购计划的权力。”虽然今天的行动反映了2021年更具建设性的前景,但我们不打算增加之前宣布的55亿美元的运营资本计划。我们相信,这个市场将青睐那些表现出可持续自律、产生强大自由现金流、拥有可预测资本回报记录的公司。在这个行业,康菲公司的价值主张仍然是正确的。”

此外,该公司证实,预计将在3月底前提供某些指导项目的更新。
