Halliburton (HAL -1.2%) says its cash tender offer to repurchase $3.3B of its stock through a Dutch auction was oversubscribed.

HAL expects to acquire 68M shares at $48.50/share, the top end of the range it set when it announced the tender offer in July and a 1.4% premium over Thursday's close.

The shares represent ~7.4% of HAL's shares outstanding, and ~100.2M of its shares were validly tendered and not withdrawn.
