The information in this Item 2.02 and Exhibit 99.1 attached hereto are furnished and shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall such information be deemed incorporated by reference into any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.


Item 8.01Other Events.

On October 27, 2020, the Company’s Board of Directors approved a resolution to increase and extend its share repurchase program by an additional $100 million, raising the aggregate authorization under the program to $500 million. The Company has spent $272.3 million to date under the existing authorization.

The authorization extends the Company’s share repurchase program through December 31, 2022. Share repurchases under the program may be made from time to time, as the Company deems appropriate, based on factors such as market conditions, share price, share availability and other factors. There can be no assurance as to the number of shares the Company will purchase, if any, and the program may be modified, renewed, suspended or terminated by the Company at any time without prior notice.

This Current Report on Form 8-K contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Federal Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including forward-looking statements regarding the share repurchase program. These statements are neither promises nor guarantees and involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those stated or implied by the forward-looking statements, including, without limitation, risks relating to the Company’s ability to implement and make appropriate, timely and beneficial decisions as to when, how and if to purchase shares under the share repurchase program, and other risks described in the Company’s filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
