Buffalo Wild Wings Announces $200 Million Share Buyback

Buffalo Wild Wings Inc. said it has authorized a $200 million share buyback that the company will fund with a combination of cash and debt.

Buffalo Wild Wings said its third-quarter results, announced on Oct. 28, were hurt by labor costs and the timing of sporting events. The company lowered its full-year earnings outlook. Shares of Buffalo Wild Wings are down 18.2% for the past three months compared with a 6% increase for the S&P.
