Also on December 15, 2015, DeVry Group issued a press release announcing that its Board of Directors (the “Board”) had authorized a ninth share repurchase program, which allows DeVry Group to buy back up to $100 million of its common stock through December 31, 2017. This new repurchase program will commence on January 1, 2016. The timing and amount of any repurchase will be determined by management based on its evaluation of market conditions and other factors. These repurchases may be made through the open market, including block purchases, or in privately negotiated transactions, or otherwise. The buyback will be funded through available cash balances and/or borrowings, and may be suspended or discontinued at any time.  A copy of the press release is included as Exhibit 99.2 to this Form 8-K.
