CORTE MADERA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–RH (NYSE:RH) today announced that its Board of Directors has authorized
a common share repurchase program of up to $700 million.

RH may purchase shares on a discretionary basis from time to time
through open market purchases, privately negotiated transactions or
other means, including through Rule 10b5-1 trading plans or the use of
other techniques such as one or more accelerated stock repurchase
programs including through privately-negotiated arrangements in which a
portion of the share repurchase program is committed in advance through
a financial intermediary and/or in transactions involving hedging or
derivatives. The timing and amount of any transactions will be subject
to the discretion of RH and may be based upon market conditions as well

quarter of fiscal 2017 in the amount of $300 million pursuant to which
it purchased 7.85 million shares.
