Note 14. Share Repurchases
In February 2010, the Board of Directors authorized a share repurchase program (the "February 2010 authorization") whereby the Company may repurchase up to an aggregate of $10.0 million of its outstanding Class A Common Stock. In August 2011, the Board of Directors authorized an additional share repurchase program whereby the Company may repurchase up to an aggregate of $20.0 million of its outstanding Class A Common Stock. During the three and six months ended September 30, 2011, 0.9 million shares and 2.6 million shares were repurchased under the February 2010 authorization with a weighted-average per share purchase price of $2.71 and $3.21, respectively. Repurchases in the six months ended September 30, 2011 include the May 31, 2011 purchase of 1,000,000 shares of its Class A Common Stock, including 618,664 shares that were converted from the Company's Class B Common Stock. These shares were purchased from a voting trust, dated February 23, 1994 (the "Voting Trust"), of which Robert C. Penny III and Robert W. Foskett currently serve as co-trustees, as well as from beneficiaries of the Voting Trust and beneficiaries of other trusts associated with certain members of Mr. Penny's family. The Company paid a total of $3.4 million or approximately $3.43 per share, which represented the volume weighted-average price of the Company's Class A Common Stock for the three daily trading sessions on May 23, 24 and 25, 2011, as reported on the NASDAQ Global Select Market. Messrs. Penny and Foskett currently serve as directors of the Company. During the three and six months ended September 30, 2010, approximately 110,000 shares and 356,000 shares were repurchased under the February 2010 authorization with a weighted-average per share purchase price of $1.69 and $1.56, respectively. There was approximately $21.0 million remaining for additional share repurchases under the two authorized programs as of September 30, 2011.
Additionally, in the first quarter of fiscal year 2012, the Company repurchased 113,734 shares from certain executives that were surrendered to satisfy the minimum statutory tax withholding obligations on the vesting of restricted stock units and performance-based restricted stock units.
