Share Repurchase Program

On October 26, 2021, our Board of Directors approved a share repurchase program of $1 billion. On March 25, 2022, our Board of Directors increased the authorization of our share repurchase program from $1 billion to $2 billion. The share repurchase program is supported by our free cash flow generation. Repurchases may be made in 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 three months ended March 31, 2023, we repurchased 3,472,020 shares of our common stock for approximately $101 million, including commissions, under this share repurchase program. From April 1, 2023 through April 25, 2023, we repurchased an additional 588,282 shares of our common stock for approximately $16 million.
