Business Wire

RICHMOND, Va. -- February 1, 2013

CarMax, Inc. (NYSE: KMX) today announced that its Board of Directors has
approved a $500 million extension of its existing share repurchase program for
the company's outstanding common stock. This extension is in addition to the
previously announced $300 million repurchase authorization approved by the
Board on October 17, 2012. This $500 million authorization expires on December
31, 2014.

“We are happy to extend our share repurchase program,” said Tom Reedy,
executive vice president and CFO. “The Board’s authorization reflects
confidence in the business and our ability to deliver our stated growth plans,
as well as CarMax's ongoing commitment to shareholder value.”

Purchases under the repurchase program may be made in open market or privately
negotiated transactions and are expected to comply with Securities and
Exchange Commission Rule 10b-18. Purchases will be made from time to time at
CarMax’s discretion and the timing and amount of any share repurchases will be
determined based on share price, market conditions, legal requirements and
other factors. The share repurchase program does not obligate CarMax, Inc. to
acquire any particular amount of common stock, and it may be suspended or
discontinued at any time. Any shares repurchased under the program will be
deemed authorized but unissued shares of common stock.
