FORT MYERS, Fla., Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of an ongoing commitment to return value to its shareholders, Chico's FAS, Inc. (NYSE: CHS) today announced that its Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to $300 million of the Company's outstanding common stock, effective March 1, 2013. The program replaces the now cancelled November 2011 $200 million program in its entirety, which had $67.6 million remaining.

Repurchases under the program will be made in open market or privately negotiated transactions in compliance with Securities and Exchange Commission Rule 10b-18. The Company intends to fund the repurchase program from cash on hand and retire any shares repurchased. The Company, however, has no obligation to repurchase shares under this authorization, and the timing, actual number and value of shares to be purchased will depend on the performance of Chico's stock price and other market conditions.
