As previously disclosed, on November 12, 2013, the Board of Directors authorized an increase in the Company's share repurchase program from $191 million to up to $291 million and extended the program to November 9, 2014. As of May 7, 2014, the Company had purchased approximately 10 million shares of common stock for approximately $193 million. On May 8, 2014, the Board of Directors authorized an increase in the share repurchase program by $100 million (up to $391 million in the aggregate when combined with the November 12, 2013 authorization). The shares are expected to be repurchased from time to time through open market purchases. The program, which does not obligate the Company to repurchase any particular amount of common stock, may be modified or suspended at any time at the Board's discretion. The manner, price, number and timing of such repurchases, if any, will be subject to a variety of factors, including market conditions and the applicable rules and regulations of the SEC.
