Item 8.01. Other Events.
On February 25, 2021 the Company's board of directors approved an extension of the duration of the Company's previously announced ordinary share repurchase program (the “Repurchase Program”) through March 1, 2022. The Repurchase Program was previously set to expire on March 1, 2021.
Pursuant to the Repurchase Program, the Company may repurchase a limited number of its ordinary shares, not to exceed $150 million in aggregate (the “Authorized Shares”) including shares repurchased prior to the extension of the Repurchase Program.

Repurchases under the Repurchase Program will be administered through an independent broker in accordance with guidelines specified under Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Repurchases will be subject to SEC regulations as well as certain price, market volume and timing constraints specified in the plan. As a result of these constraints, execution of the plan may not result in all or any of the remaining Authorized Shares being repurchased by the Company.
