MCLEAN, Va., Feb. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Capital One Financial Corporation (NYSE: COF) today announced that the company's Board of Directors has authorized the repurchase of up to an additional $300 million of shares of common stock through the end of the second quarter of 2016. This amount is in addition to the $3.125 billion of share repurchases authorized by the board last year. The company notified the Federal Reserve of its intention to engage in additional share repurchases in excess of the amount included in its 2015 capital plan, and the Federal Reserve did not object. While the company expects to complete the total authorized amount of repurchases in the authorized period, the timing and exact amount of any Capital One common stock repurchases will depend on various factors, including market conditions, opportunities for growth, and the company's capital position and amount of retained earnings.
