Shares of The Beauty Health Co (NASDAQ:) jumped Tuesday after the company announced it has authorized a share repurchase program of up to $200 million.
At the time of writing, its shares are up 12.7% at $11.72 after hitting a high of $12.33 earlier in the session.
Of the $200 million repurchase program, $100 million is for an accelerated repurchase agreement.

“In alignment with the Board of Directors, we believe that BeautyHealth stock is trading at levels that make a repurchase prudent at this time,” commented BeautyHealth President and Chief Executive Officer Andrew Stanleick. “This buyback demonstrates our conviction in the long-term strategy and growth outlook of BeautyHealth. We are committed to creating value for shareholders through disciplined capital allocation, and we remain in a strong cash position to pursue M&A.”
