Share Repurchase Program
On February 7, 2018 and on May 3, 2018, our Board of Directors authorized us to repurchase up to an additional $950 million in shares of our common stock in addition to the $50 million remaining under our September 2015 share repurchase authorization. The share repurchase program will be supported by our free cash flow generation. Repurchases may be made through the open market, including through accelerated share repurchase programs, or in privately negotiated transactions, and repurchases may be commenced or suspended from time to time without prior notice. Shares of common stock acquired through the repurchase program are held in treasury at cost. During the six months ended June 30, 2019, we repurchased 5,540,254 shares of our common stock for approximately $115 million, excluding commissions, under the repurchase program.
