Note 8. Treasury Stock
In August 2017, the Company’s Board of Directors (the Board) approved a share repurchase program (the 2017 Program) pursuant to which the Company could purchase up to $7.0 million of shares of its common stock over the twelve-month period following the establishment of the program. The repurchases under the 2017 Program were made from time to time in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions and were funded from the Company’s working capital. Repurchases were made in compliance with Rule 10b-18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, subject to market conditions, available liquidity, cash flow, applicable legal requirements and other factors. All shares of common stock repurchased under the Company’s 2017 Program were returned to the status of authorized but unissued shares of common stock. On August 7, 2018, the Board approved an extension to the 2017 Program for an additional twelve-month period ending on August 14, 2019.
On September 9, 2019, the Board approved a new share repurchase program pursuant to which the Company may purchase up to $7.0 million of shares of its common stock over the following twelve-months. All shares purchased in the three months ended September 30, 2019 were subject to the new share repurchase program. This newly adopted share repurchase program mirrors all aspects and terms of the 2017 Program as described above.
During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, the Company repurchased 48,000 and 63,000 shares of common stock, respectively, under the share repurchase programs. For the three months ended September 30, 2019, the shares were repurchased at an average price per share of $12.54 per share, for a total cost of $0.6 million. For the nine months ended September 30, 2019, the shares were repurchased at an average price of $12.75 per share, for a total cost of $0.8 million. As of September 30, 2019, the Company repurchased a total of $3.6 million in common stock under the recently expired 2017 Program.
