Pursuant to this authorization, repurchases may be made from time to time in the open market, including under a Rule 10b5-1 plan, which permits shares to be repurchased when the Company might otherwise be precluded from doing so under insider trading laws in accordance with specific prearranged terms related to timing, price, and volume (among others), without further direction from the Company.

The share repurchase program will terminate on the earlier of November 29, 2022 or when the maximum dollar amount has been expended.
