1Q 22 Quarterly Report
I am trying to figure out the average price management paid for repurchasing shares in 1Q22. Quarterly report says they purchased 3,901,144 shares for 192 million which means the average price per share was 49.21. But how can this be? The price never dipped below 50 in 1Q22. What am I missing? Search “repurchase” in report to find the relevant numbers.

In the statement of cash flows on page 69, it shows the cost of common share repurchases as $213M, which would work out to about $54.60 per. The $192M figure is described as “net of issuances” on page 25, so maybe there’s some accounting arithmetic around issuances (management share option plan, restricted stock plan, dividend reinvestment plan) that affects this figure. Just a guess. In any case, not a big enough number to worry about.
Q2 buybacks might be more interesting. Prices in the mid-40s offer a big discount to their calculation of plan value and give them an opportunity to make good on their pledge to repurchase the roughly 63M shares they issued last year as part of acquisitions. Subtracting the Q1 buybacks leaves about 59M. They can always say they found more compelling opportunities in a falling market, but let’s see if they put their money where their mouth is with respect to the valuation of their own shares.
