Approximately $172 million remains under the current share repurchase authorization as of the end of the third quarter.

"Our third quarter revenue reflected prevailing market uncertainties, while earnings per share and cash flow exceeded expectations," said Steven W. Berglund, Trimble's president and chief executive officer. "Although we anticipate market ambiguities to persist for the remainder of the year, we demonstrated the ability to control costs while continuing the transformation of our business model towards recurring revenue."

  • Non-GAAP recurring revenue
  • Non-GAAP operating income
