Intel suspends share buybacks, warns of likely coronavirus hit

The suspension of buybacks would not impact dividend payments, Intel said in a filing.

Intel in October 2019 said it would repurchase $20 billion worth of shares over the next 15 to 18 months. The company bought back about $7.6 billion in shares in the fourth and the first quarter.

Intel’s decision follows measures by big companies including AT&T Inc and Boeing (NYSE:BA) Co, which last week announced similar plans, citing coronavirus concerns.
