On September 23, 2020, the Company increased the maximum dollar amount of shares of its common stock that may be sold through its at-the-market offering (the “ATM Offering”) to $150.0 million from $50.0 million.

 

During the quarter ended September 30, 2020, the Company sold 3,808,979 shares under the ATM Offering for gross aggregate proceeds of approximately $50.9 million. The Company did not sell any shares of its common stock under the ATM Offering beginning September 29, 2020 to date. The remaining aggregate dollar value of shares that may yet be sold by the Company under the ATM Offering is approximately $99.1 million.

 

Share Repurchase Program

 

To date, the Company has repurchased 4,452,049 shares under its Share Repurchase Program for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $27.3 million since inception of the Share Repurchase Program in August 2017. The dollar value of shares that may yet be purchased by the Company under the Share Repurchase Program is approximately $2.7 million.

 

Under the publicly announced Share Repurchase Program and the Modified Dutch Auction Tender Offer completed during the fourth quarter of 2019, to date, the Company has repurchased 5,901,324 shares of its common stock for approximately $37.3 million.

 

Adjustment to Conversion Rate for Convertible Notes

 

As a result of the Company’s $0.25 per share cash dividend announced on September 28, 2020, an adjustment to the conversion rate of the Company’s 4.75% Convertible Senior Notes due 2023 (the “Notes”) has been made.

 

Effective as of October 5, 2020, the conversion price applicable to the Notes has been adjusted to $9.84 per share (101.6664 shares of the Company’s common stock per $1,000 principal amount of Notes) from the most recent conversion price of $10.10 per share (99.0298 shares of the Company’s common stock per $1,000 principal amount of Notes), which had been in effect since August 11, 2020. The adjustment to the conversion rate of the Notes was made pursuant to the supplemental indenture governing the Notes as a result of the Company’s cash dividend of $0.25 per share, payable on October 20, 2020 to the Company’s common stockholders of record as of the close of business on October 5, 2020. The ex-dividend for this dividend date is October 2, 2020.
