Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O), the world’s largest e-commerce company, said on Wednesday its board authorized a $5 billion share buyback program.

The buyback replaces the $2 billion repurchase program approved in 2010. The company had $763 million remaining under the previous plan.

The company’s shares rose 1.5 percent to $498 in after-hours trading.
