Smith & Wesson (SWHC) +5.8% AH to $9.84 after announcing a $100M buyback, of which $75M will happen through a $10/share tender offer. At $10, a $100M buyback would be good for repurchasing 16% of outstanding shares. The program replaces the $15M remaining on a $35M buyback announced in December. SWHC is also announcing a debt refinancing - $75M worth of 5.875% notes due 2017 will be issued, and  9.5% notes due 2016 and carrying a principal value of $42.8M will be redeemed. The company expects net proceeds of $25M from the two debt deals.
