Assume you are the CFO of a company that has accumulated a significant amount of cash, well beyond its foreseeable needs. The company’s CEO has asked your opinion about using the cash to repurchase company shares or using the cash to distribute an extraordinary dividend to your shareholders. In a brief memo, explain to the CEO what the pros and cons of each of these are. You may assume your company is a fictitious one and assign to it whatever circumstances you like or you may assume your company is an actual existing corporation. Your memo should include at least two references to published works like books, articles, etc.
