Buyback Details: Willis Towers Watson (NASDAQ:WLTW), a leading global advisory, broking and solutions company, announced that its Board of Directors approved a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.60 per ordinary share for the quarter ended December 31, 2017. This represents a 13% increase to the prior quarter's dividend. The dividend is payable on or about April 16, 2018 to shareholders of record at the close of business on March 31, 2018. Additionally, the Willis Towers Watson Board of Directors approved a replenishment of the amount authorized under the share repurchase program. In 2016, the Board had authorized up to $1.2 billion for share repurchases. Approximately $600 million remained under the previous Board authorization at December 31, 2017. Accordingly, the Board authorized up to an additional $400 million under the Share Repurchase Program to be consistent with the previous authorization. The Company is authorized to repurchase shares, by way of redemption, and will consider whether to do so from time to time, based on many factors, including market conditions.
