Pitney Bowes Announces Second Quarter 2016 Financial Results

GAAP Cash from Operations and Free Cash Flow Results

GAAP cash from operations during the quarter was $95 million while free cash flow was $86 million. Free cash flow was slightly favorable to prior year as favorable working capital and lower capital expenditures were partly offset by lower net income.

During the quarter, the Company used cash for: $35 million in dividends to its common shareholders; $66 million for share repurchases and $12 million for restructuring payments. The Company also received $18 million of cash from investing activities related to the sale of a building in Troy, New York.
