Other Events.
On September 4, 2019, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Post Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) approved, effective September 4, 2019 (the “Effective Date”), a $400 million share repurchase authorization and cancelled, effective September 4, 2019, its existing $350 million share repurchase authorization, which was approved by the Board on May 2, 2018 and became effective on May 7, 2018 (the “Existing Authorization”). The Company had repurchased approximately $311 million of shares of common stock under the Existing Authorization as of September 4, 2019. The new authorization will extend for a two-year period beginning on the Effective Date. Repurchases may be made from time to time in the open market, private purchases, through forward, derivative, accelerated repurchase or automatic purchase transactions, or otherwise. The shares would be purchased with cash on hand and cash from operations. Any shares repurchased would be held as treasury stock. The authorization does not, however, obligate the Company to acquire any particular amount of shares, and repurchases may be suspended or terminated at any time at the Company’s discretion. A press release announcing the approval of the share repurchase authorization and the cancellation of the Existing Authorization is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
