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 primarily 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 NYSE under the symbol “UPS”. Class A and B shares both have a $0.01 par value, and as of March 31, 2023, 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 March 31, 2023, 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 three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022 (in millions, except per share amounts):
We repurchased 4.1 and 1.2 million shares of class B common stock for $750 and $260 million during the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022, respectively. Repurchases of $751 and $254 million, respectively, are reported on the statements of consolidated cash flows due to the timing of settlements. These repurchases were completed as follows:
•In August 2021, the Board of Directors authorized the company to repurchase up to $5.0 billion of class A and class B common stock (the "2021 Authorization"). For the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022, we repurchased 0.5 and 1.2 million shares of class B common stock for $82 and $260 million, respectively, under this authorization.
•In January 2023, the Board of Directors terminated the 2021 Authorization and approved a new share repurchase authorization for $5.0 billion of class A and class B common stock (the "2023 Authorization"). For the three months ended March 31, 2023, we repurchased 3.6 million shares for $668 million under the 2023 Authorization. As of March 31, 2023, we had $4.3 billion available under this repurchase authorization.
We anticipate our share repurchases will total approximately $3.0 billion in 2023.
Future 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. Unless terminated earlier by the Board of Directors, this program will expire when we have purchased all shares authorized for repurchase under the program.
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.
Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income (Loss)
We recognize activity in other comprehensive income 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 accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022 was 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 within Shareowners’ Equity in 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 no longer able to defer the gains from stock options exercised subsequent to December 31, 2004.
Activity in the deferred compensation program for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022 was as follows (in millions):
