MEMPHIS, Tenn., Sep 28, 2011 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) --

AutoZone, Inc. (NYSE:AZO), today announced its Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of an additional $750 million of the Company's common stock in connection with its ongoing share repurchase program. Since the inception of the repurchase program in 1998, and including the above amount, AutoZone's Board of Directors has authorized $11.2 billion.

"AutoZone's continued strong financial performance allows us to repurchase our stock while maintaining our investment grade credit ratings," said Bill Giles, Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer, Information Technology and Store Development. "We remain committed to utilizing share repurchases within the bounds of a disciplined capital structure to enhance stockholder returns while maintaining adequate liquidity to execute our plans."

Additionally, Theodore W. Ullyot has decided not to stand for re-election to the Board of Directors at the upcoming Stockholders' Meeting in December due to other business and time commitments. "Mr. Ullyot has been a Board Member since 2006, and we appreciate his sage advice and guidance these last several years. As Ted's other commitments have grown more time consuming, we understand his reasons for leaving our Board; however, we are sorry to have him depart. We wish Ted all the best on his future endeavors," said Bill Rhodes, Chairman, President and CEO.
