Item 8.01. Other Events.
AppFolio, Inc. (the "Company") has previously disclosed that it may, in the future, enter into arrangements to acquire or invest in markets adjacent to those the Company serves today or in entirely new verticals. Furthermore, the Company has previously disclosed that its Board of Directors (the “Board”) may, from time to time, authorize management to repurchase shares of the Company’s Class A common stock.
On August 31, 2018, as previously disclosed, the Company completed the acquisition of substantially all of the assets of WegoWise, Inc. ("WegoWise"), a provider of cloud-based utility analytics software solutions serving the real estate market. The WegoWise platform empowers building owners and third-party property managers to better manage operating and capital expenditures relating to utilities, and the Company expects that the acquisition will provide enhanced functionality to its real estate customers over time.
On October 31, 2018, the Company announced that the Board has authorized a share repurchase program under which the Company may repurchase up to $30.0 million in shares of its outstanding Class A common stock. Share repurchases under the repurchase program may be made from time to time in open market purchases, privately negotiated transactions or otherwise. The extent to which the Company actually repurchases shares, and the timing of any such repurchases, will depend upon a variety of factors, including the acquisition price of the shares, the Company’s liquidity position, macroeconomic trends and conditions, legal and regulatory requirements, and other considerations.
