JPMorgan Chase, the biggest U.S. bank by assets, said it will repurchase up to $1.88 billion in common shares through the end of the second quarter.

The repurchase under the bank's 2015 capital plan is in addition to the $6.4 billion of shares authorized for repurchase by the board last year.

The bank has got a non-objection from the board of governors of the Federal Reserve System to increase the amount for the share repurchase.
