Item 8.01. Other Events.

Capital Allocation Strategy 

On May 4, 2016, the Company also announced the following two actions under its capital allocation strategy. A copy of the press release announcing these actions is attached to this report as Exhibit 99.2 and incorporated herein by reference. 

Quarterly Cash Dividend 

The Company’s Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.1075 per common share to be paid on June 10, 2016 to all stockholders of record as of the close of business on May 25, 2016. 

Share Repurchase Program 

The Company’s Board of Directors authorized a $750 million increase to the Company’s share repurchase program under which the Company may repurchase shares of its common stock in the open market or through privately negotiated or other transactions, depending on share price, market conditions and other factors. The increase to the share repurchase program is effective immediately and is incremental to the $141 million currently unused in the repurchase program which was initially authorized for $500 million in November 2014. The Company intends to conduct any open market share repurchases in compliance with the safe harbor provisions of Rule 10b-18 of the Exchange Act. The share repurchase program does not obligate the Company to repurchase any dollar amount or number of its shares, and repurchases may be commenced or suspended from time to time without prior notice.
