The Children’s Place to Webcast Review of First Quarter 2017 Financial Results
The Children’s Place Expands Capital Return Program

INCREASES AUTHORIZED STOCK REPURCHASES BY $250 MILLION ANNOUNCES A 100% INCREASE IN ITS QUARTERLY DIVIDEND SECAUCUS, N.J., March 08, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Children’s Place, Inc. (NASDAQ:PLCE), the largest pure-play children’s specialty apparel retailer in North America, today announced that its Board of Directors has approved a new $250 million share repurchase program and has increased the Company’s quarterly dividend to $0.40 per share from $0.20 per share. Jane Elfers, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Since 2009, we have returned over $790 million to shareholders through share repurchases and dividends. The significant increase in our quarterly dividend brings our annual dividend yield more in line with that of our specialty peers. This dividend increase and the new share repurchase authorization reflect our confidence in our ability to execute on our strategic initiatives and our continuing commitment to return excess capital to shareholders." The Board declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.40 per share to be paid May 1, 2017 to shareholders of record at the close of business on April 10, 2017. Future declarations of quarterly dividends and the establishment of future record and payment dates are subject to approval by the Company’s Board of Directors based on a number of factors, including business and market conditions, the Company’s future financial performance and other investment priorities. The share repurchase authorization announced today permits the Company to repurchase shares in the open market at current market prices at the time of purchase or in privately negotiated transactions. The timing and actual number of shares repurchased under the program will depend on a variety of factors including price, corporate and regulatory requirements, and other market and business conditions, and the Company may suspend or discontinue the program at any time, and may thereafter reinstitute purchases, all without prior announcement.
