Item 8.01 Other Events
The Company announced that its Board of Directors approved a new share repurchase program on October 25, 2018 authorizing the Company to repurchase up to $500 million of its common stock. The Board of Directors made this determination after considering the Company's liquidity needs and capital resources as well as the estimated current value of the Company's net assets. The press release dated October 25, 2018 and attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 includes the announcement of the share repurchase program.
Under the share repurchase plan, 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 under the new authorization and the program may be suspended or discontinued at any time. The new program replaces any previously authorized share repurchase programs.
