Stock Repurchases
SEACOR’s Board of Directors previously approved a securities repurchase plan that authorizes the Company to acquire its Securities through open market purchases, privately negotiated transactions or otherwise, depending on market conditions. As of September 30, 2016, the Company’s repurchase authority for the Securities was $64.8 million.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2016, the Company purchased 47,455 shares of Common Stock for treasury for an aggregate purchase price of $2.4 million from its employees to cover their tax withholding obligations upon the lapsing of restrictions on share awards. These shares were purchased in accordance with the terms of the Company’s Share Incentive Plans and not pursuant to the repurchase authorization granted by SEACOR’s Board of Directors.
