Capital Stock, Additional Paid-In Capital, Retained Earnings and Non-Controlling Minority Interests
We are authorized to issue two classes of common stock, which are distinguished from each other by their respective voting rights. Class A shares of UPS are entitled to 10 votes per share, whereas class B shares are entitled to one vote per share. Class A shares are primarily held by UPS employees and retirees, as well as trusts and descendants of the Company's founders, and these shares are fully convertible into class B shares at any time. Class B shares are publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") under the symbol "UPS". Class A and B shares both have a $0.01 par value, and as of December 31, 2021, there were 4.6 billion class A shares and 5.6 billion class B shares authorized to be issued. Additionally, there are 200 million preferred shares authorized to be issued, with a par value of $0.01 per share. As of December 31, 2021, no preferred shares had been issued.
The following is a rollforward of our common stock, additional paid-in capital, retained earnings and non-controlling minority interests accounts for the years ended December 31, 2021, 2020 and 2019 (in millions, except per share amounts):
(1) The dividend per share amount is the same for both class A and class B common stock. Dividends include $167, $178 and $147 million for 2021, 2020 and 2019, respectively, that were settled in shares of class A common stock.
In May 2016, the Board of Directors approved a share repurchase authorization of $8.0 billion of class A and class B common stock. For the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, we repurchased a total of 2.1 and 9.1 million shares of class A and class B common stock for $217 million and $1.0 billion, respectively under this program ($224 million and $1.0 billion in repurchases for 2020 and 2019, respectively, are reported on the statements of consolidated cash flows due to the timing of settlements). We did not repurchase any shares under this program during 2021.
In August 2021, the Board of Directors terminated this authorization and approved a new share repurchase authorization of $5.0 billion for class A and class B common stock. We repurchased 2.6 million shares of class B common stock for $500 million under an accelerated stock repurchase transaction pursuant to this authorization during the year ended December 31, 2021. As of December 31, 2021, we had $4.5 billion of this share repurchase authorization available. Unless terminated earlier by the Board of Directors, this program will expire when we have purchased all shares authorized for repurchase under the program.
Share repurchases may be in the form of accelerated share repurchase programs, open market purchases or other methods we deem appropriate. The timing of share repurchases will depend upon market conditions. In order to lower the average cost of acquiring shares in our ongoing share repurchase program, we periodically enter into structured repurchase agreements involving the use of capped call options for the purchase of UPS class B shares. We pay a fixed sum of cash upon execution of each agreement in exchange for the right to receive either a predetermined amount of cash or stock. Upon expiration of each agreement, if the closing market price of our common stock is above the predetermined price, we will have our initial investment returned with a premium in either cash or shares (at our election). If the closing market price of our common stock is at or below the pre-determined price, we will receive the number of shares specified in the agreement. We received net premiums of $21 million during the year ended December 31, 2019 related to entering into and settling capped call options for the purchase of class B shares. We had no capped call options outstanding, nor did we enter into any of these structured repurchase agreements, during the years ended December 31, 2021 or 2020.
Movements in additional paid-in capital in respect of stock award plans comprise accruals for unvested awards, offset by adjustments for awards that vest during the period. The movement year over year was driven by changes in award payouts and by the acceleration of vesting for certain of our awards in 2020.
Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income (Loss)
We recognize activity in AOCI for foreign currency translation adjustments, unrealized holding gains and losses on available-for-sale securities, unrealized gains and losses from derivatives that qualify as hedges of cash flows and unrecognized pension and postretirement benefit costs. The activity in AOCI for the years ended December 31, 2021, 2020 and 2019 is as follows (in millions):
Detail of the gains (losses) reclassified from AOCI to the statements of consolidated income for the years ended December 31, 2021, 2020 and 2019 is as follows (in millions):
Deferred Compensation Obligations and Treasury Stock
We maintain a deferred compensation plan whereby certain employees were previously able to elect to defer the gains on stock option exercises by deferring the shares received upon exercise into a rabbi trust. The shares held in this trust are classified as treasury stock, and the liability to participating employees is classified as Deferred compensation obligations in the shareowners’ equity section of the consolidated balance sheets. The number of shares needed to settle the liability for deferred
compensation obligations is included in the denominator in both the basic and diluted earnings per share calculations. Employees
are generally not able to defer the gains from stock options exercised subsequent to December 31, 2004.
Activity in the deferred compensation program for the years ended December 31, 2021, 2020 and 2019 was as follows (in millions):
The entire disclosure for shareholders' equity comprised of portions attributable to the parent entity and noncontrolling interest, including other comprehensive income. Includes, but is not limited to, balances of common stock, preferred stock, additional paid-in capital, other capital and retained earnings, accumulated balance for each classification of other comprehensive income and amount of comprehensive income.
