Note 13—Share Repurchase Program
On December 3, 2021, the Board of Directors authorized a share repurchase program for up to an aggregate amount of $300 million of the Company’s outstanding shares of common stock over a period of three years. The amount and timing of repurchases depends on a number of factors, including the Company’s financial condition, capital requirements, cash flows, results of operations, future business prospects, and other factors our management may deem relevant. The timing, volume, and nature of repurchases are subject to market conditions, applicable securities laws and other factors and may be amended, suspended, or discontinued at any time. Shares may be repurchased from time to time on the open market, in privately negotiated transactions, or otherwise.
On December 16, 2021, the Company repurchased and retired 7.5 million shares of common stock at a price per share of $20.25. The Company paid $151.9 million ($152.1 million including offering costs) to fund the share repurchase using existing cash on hand. The Company accounted for the share repurchase and retirement under the cost method by deducting its par value from common stock, reducing additional paid-in-capital by $127.5 million using the share price when the stock was originally issued, and the remaining excess cost of $24.4 million increased retained deficit. As of July 2, 2022, $148.1 million remains available for future purchases under the program.
