|Common Stock Repurchase Plan||COMMON STOCK REPURCHASE PLAN
On March 6, 2017, we announced that our board of directors had approved a share repurchase program pursuant to which we were authorized to repurchase up to $50.0 million of our outstanding shares of common stock. From inception of the share repurchase program through May 3, 2019, we repurchased approximately 2.5 million shares for a total cost of $41.0 million, with an average price of $16.23 per share. On May 3, 2019, we announced that our board of directors had authorized an increased share repurchase program for an additional $50.0 million beyond the $41.0 million already repurchased under the prior share repurchase program, effective immediately. Repurchases under the new program could be made through open market, block, and privately negotiated transactions, including Rule 10b5-1 plans, at times and in such amounts as management deemed appropriate, subject to market and business conditions, regulatory requirements and other factors.
On May 17, 2019, we announced the commencement of a modified "Dutch auction" self-tender offer to repurchase up to $50.0 million in cash of shares of our common stock. As a result of the auction, on June 21, 2019 we purchased 4,504,504 shares of common stock at a purchase price of $11.40 per share, for a total cost of $51.3 million, including fees and expenses. After the completion of the tender offer, we have no remaining authorization to purchase further shares.
The entire disclosure for treasury stock, including, but not limited to, average cost per share, description of share repurchase program, shares repurchased, shares held for each class of treasury stock.
