$300 Billion Cash Repatriated in Q1, GS Expects Eventual $1Trillion in Buybacks

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act encouraged the repatriation of profits, which had been subject to additional U.S. levies after it was brought home.

In response to the Trump tax cuts, there was a Dramatic Rise in Corporate Cash Brought Home in 2018.

In the first quarter alone, multinational enterprises brought home about $300 billion of the $1 trillion held abroad, according to a recent Federal Reserve study. A good chunk of that repatriated money went to share repurchases — for the top 15 cash holders, some $55 billion was used on buybacks, more than double the $23 billion in the fourth quarter of 2017.
