DuPont de Nemours Inc. said it has approved a $1.5 billion share-buyback program expiring June 30, 2022.

The company last month said it has resumed share buybacks under the 2019 program and plans to complete its remaining $1 billion in repurchases before the June 1 expiration date.

Separately on Monday, the company said it agreed to buy Laird Performance Materials from private-equity firm Advent International for $2.3 billion.
