Item 8.01 Other Events
The Company announced that its Board of Directors approved a new share repurchase program on October 26, 2020, authorizing the Company to repurchase up to $500 million of its common stock. In addition to this 2020 Share Repurchase Program, $57.1 million of the Company’s common stock remains available for repurchase under the Company’s previously approved 2018 Share Repurchase Program. The Board of Directors authorized the 2020 Share Repurchase Program and reinstated the 2018 Share Repurchase Program after considering the Company's liquidity position and strong cash flows. The press release dated October 29, 2020, and attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1, includes the announcement of the 2020 Share Repurchase Program.
Under the Share Repurchase Programs, the Company may purchase common stock in open market transactions, block or privately negotiated transactions, and may from time to time purchase shares pursuant to a trading plan in accordance with Rule 10b5-1 and Rule 10b-18 under the Exchange Act or by any combination of such methods. The number of shares to be purchased and the timing of the purchases are based on a variety of factors, including, but not limited to, the level of cash balances, credit availability, debt covenant restrictions, general business conditions, regulatory requirements, the market price of the Company's stock and the availability of alternative investment opportunities. No time limit was set for completion of repurchases and the Share Repurchase Programs may be suspended or discontinued at any time.
