At-the-Market Offering

Under our at-the-market stock offering program (“ATM Offering”), which commenced February 2021, we may offer and sell our common shares, $0.01 par value per share (“Common Shares”), having an aggregate gross sales price of up to $250.0 million (the “Shares”). We may sell the Shares in amounts and at times to be determined by us but we have no obligation to sell any of the Shares. Actual sales, if any, will depend on a variety of factors to be determined by us from time to time, including, among other things, market conditions, the trading price of the Common Shares, capital needs and determinations by us of the appropriate sources of its funding. We currently intend to use the net proceeds from the sale of shares pursuant to the ATM Offering for working capital and general corporate purposes.

The following table sets forth information regarding settlements under our ATM offering program:

Share Repurchase Program
In May 2021, the Company’s Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to $80.0 million of the Company’s outstanding shares through May 31, 2023. This authorization replaced a previous repurchase authorization for approximately $80.0 million that expired in May 2021. On July 1, 2021, a covenant in the Company’s debt agreements (the “repurchase covenant”) prohibiting share repurchases expired. Repurchases may be made from time to time through open market, privately-negotiated, structured or derivative transactions (including accelerated share repurchase transactions), or other methods of acquiring shares. The Company intends to structure open market purchases to occur within pricing and volume requirements of Rule 10b-18. The Company may, from time to time, enter into Rule 10b5-1 plans to facilitate the repurchase of its shares under this authorization. The Company did not repurchase any shares for both the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020. The remaining amount authorized to be repurchased under the program as of June 30, 2021 was approximately $80.0 million. The Company temporarily suspended share repurchases for at least the twelve months starting July 1, 2020 and ending on June 30, 2021 in light of the repurchase covenant.
