13 .   Stock Purchase Program

 

In March 2007, NS’ Board of Directors amended NS’ share repurchase program and increased the authorized amount of share repurchases from 50 million to 75 million shares and shortened the authorized period from 2015 to 2010.   The timing and volume of purchases is guided by management’s assessment of market conditions and other pertinent facts.   Near-term purchases under the program are expected to be made with internally generated cash; however, future funding sources could include proceeds from the sale of commercial paper notes or the increase of long-term debt.   NS purchased and retired 23.6 million shares and 21.7 million shares of its common stock under this program in 2007 and 2006, respectively, at a cost of $1.2 billion and $964 million, respectively.
