(6) Shareholders’ Equity
In July 2022, the Company’s Board of Directors approved a new share repurchase program authorizing the Company to repurchase up to $60 million of outstanding common stock from time to time. The new share repurchase program replaces the previous share repurchase program announced in October 2019, which has been terminated. Share repurchases under both programs were accounted for under the cost method and all repurchased shares were retired and cancelled. The excess of the purchase price over the par value of the shares was recorded as a reduction in additional paid-in capital. During the first thirty-nine weeks of fiscal year 2022, 828,348 shares were repurchased at an aggregate cost of $14.9 million, or an average cost of $17.99 per share. As of September 25, 2022, $54.6 million remained available for future purchases under the new share repurchase program. Share repurchases under both programs were accounted for under the cost method. The excess of the purchase price over the par value of the shares was recorded as a reduction in additional paid-in capital.
