Note 9. Stockholders' Equity  
Preferred Stock
Pursuant to our amended and restated certificate of incorporation, we are authorized to designate and issue up to 10.0 million shares of preferred stock in one or more classes or series. Our Board of Directors has designated 6.9 million shares as 8.000% Series A Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock ("Series A Preferred Stock") and 8,050 shares as 7.750% Series B Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock ("Series B Preferred Stock"). As of September 30, 2014 we had 3.1 million shares of authorized but unissued shares of preferred stock. Our Board of Directors may designate additional series of authorized preferred stock ranking junior to or in parity with the Series A or Series B Preferred Stock or designate additional shares of the Series A or Series B Preferred Stock and authorize the issuance of such shares.
In April 2012, we completed a public offering in which 6.9 million shares of our Series A Preferred Stock were sold to the underwriters at a price of $24.2125 per share.  Upon completion of the offering we received proceeds, net of offering expenses, of approximately $167 million. Our Series A Preferred Stock has no stated maturity and is not subject to any sinking fund or mandatory redemption. Under certain circumstances upon a change of control, our Series A Preferred Stock is convertible to shares of our common stock. Holders of Series A Preferred Stock have no voting rights, except under limited conditions, and holders are entitled to receive cumulative cash dividends at a rate of 8.000% per annum of the $25.00 per share liquidation preference before holders of our common stock are entitled to receive any dividends. Shares of our Series A Preferred Stock are redeemable at $25.00 per share plus accumulated and unpaid dividends (whether or not declared) exclusively at our option commencing on April 5, 2017, or earlier under certain circumstances intended to preserve our qualification as a REIT for Federal income tax purposes. Dividends are payable quarterly in arrears on the 15th day of each January, April, July and October. As of September 30, 2014, we had declared all required quarterly dividends on the Series A Preferred Stock.
In May 2014, we completed a public offering in which 7.0 million depositary shares were sold to the underwriters at a price of $24.2125 per depositary share for proceeds, net of offering expenses, of approximately $169 million. Each depositary share represents a 1/1,000th interest in a share of our Series B Preferred Stock. Our Series B Preferred Stock has no stated maturity, is not subject to any sinking fund or mandatory redemption and ranks on parity with our Series A Preferred Stock. Under certain circumstances upon a change of control, our Series B Preferred Stock is convertible to shares of our common stock. Holders of depositary shares have no voting rights, except under limited conditions, and are entitled to receive cumulative cash dividends at a rate of 7.750% per annum of the $25.00 per depositary share liquidation preference before holders of our common stock are entitled to receive any dividends. Dividends are payable quarterly in arrears on the 15th day of each January, April, July and October. Depositary shares are redeemable at $25.00 per depositary share plus accumulated and unpaid dividends (whether or not declared) exclusively at our option commencing on May 8, 2019 or earlier under certain circumstances intended to preserve our qualification as a REIT for federal income tax purposes. As of September 30, 2014, we had declared all required quarterly dividends on the Series B Preferred Stock underlying our depositary shares.
Common Stock Repurchase Program
In October 2012, our Board of Directors adopted a program that provides for stock repurchases of up to $500 million of our outstanding shares of common stock through December 31, 2013.  In September 2013, our Board of Directors increased the authorized amount to $1 billion of our outstanding shares of common stock and extended its authorization through December 31, 2014. In January 2014, our Board of Directors increased the authorized amount by an additional $1 billion of our outstanding shares of common stock through December 31, 2014. In October 2014, our Board of Directors extended its authorization through December 31, 2015. Shares of our common stock may be purchased in the open market, including through block purchases, or through privately negotiated transactions, or pursuant to any trading plan that may be adopted in accordance with Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.  The timing, manner, price and amount of any repurchases will be determined at our discretion and the program may be suspended, terminated or modified at any time for any reason.  We intend to only consider repurchasing shares of our common stock when the purchase price is less than our estimate of our current net asset value per common share. Generally, when we repurchase our common stock at a discount to our net asset value, the net asset value of our remaining shares of common stock outstanding increases. In addition, we do not intend to repurchase any shares from directors, officers or other affiliates. The program does not obligate us to acquire any specific number of shares, and all repurchases will be made in accordance with Rule 10b-18, which sets certain restrictions on the method, timing, price and volume of stock repurchases.
We did not repurchase any shares of our common stock during the three months ended September 30, 2014. During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, we repurchased approximately 3.4 million shares of our common stock at an average repurchase price of $22.10 per share, including expenses, totaling $74 million. As of September 30, 2014, the total remaining amount authorized for repurchases of our common stock was $992 million.
