Initial Public Offering
On April 23, 2018, the Company amended and restated its certificate of incorporation to effectuate a dual class common stock structure consisting of Class A common stock and Class B common stock. As a result, each share of common stock, par value 0.001 per share, was reclassified into 25.2 shares of Class B common stock so that all holders of shares of outstanding common stock became the holders of 41,817,537 shares of Class B common stock, and shares held by the Company in treasury became 3,170,034 Class B treasury shares (the “Reclassification”). The amended and restated certificate of incorporation authorized 400,000,000 shares of Class A common stock and 100,000,000 shares of Class B common stock. All share and per share amounts have been retroactively adjusted for all periods presented to give effect to the 25.2 to 1 split of the common stock as part of the Reclassification (the “Stock Split”).
On May 8, 2018, the Company completed an initial public offering of 11,250,000 shares of Class A common stock at a price of $12.00 per share (the "IPO"). Of these shares, 9,000,000 were sold by the Company, for which the Company received approximately $100.4 million in proceeds, after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions of approximately $7.6 million, and prior to additional total offering expenses of approximately $6.3 million. Of the $6.3 million additional offering expenses, $2.2 million are reflected as capitalized equity issuance costs included within other current assets on the Consolidated Balance Sheet at September 30, 2017. All $6.3 million of equity issuance costs were reclassified to additional paid-in capital during the fiscal year ended September 30, 2018 in connection with the successful completion of the IPO. The remaining 2,250,000 shares were sold by the holders of Class B common stock, which shares upon sale automatically converted into 2,250,000 shares of Class A common stock, thereby reducing the number of issued and outstanding shares of Class B common stock to 42,737,571 and 39,567,537, respectively. The Company did not receive any proceeds from the sale of shares by the holders of Class B common stock.
On May 24, 2018, the underwriters of the IPO partially exercised their over-allotment option to purchase an additional 700,000 shares of Class A common stock at the IPO price of $12.00 per share less the underwriting discount and commissions. Of these shares, 350,000 were sold by the Company, for which the Company received approximately $3.9 million in proceeds after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions of approximately $0.3 million. The remaining 350,000 shares were sold by the holders of Class B common stock, which shares upon sale automatically converted into 350,000 shares of Class A common stock, thereby reducing the number of issued and outstanding shares of Class B common stock to 42,387,571 and 39,217,537, respectively. The Company did not receive any proceeds from the sale of shares by the holders of Class B common stock.
At September 30, 2018 and September 30, 2017, the Company had authorized for issuance 10,000,000 and 1,000,000 shares of preferred stock, par value $0.001, respectively. No preferred shares were issued and outstanding at September 30, 2018 or September 30, 2017.
At September 30, 2017, the Company had authorized for issuance 126,000,000 shares of common stock, par value per share $0.001, of which 44,987,575 and 41,691,541 were issued and outstanding, respectively. At September 30, 2017, the Company held 3,296,034 shares in treasury, at an average cost of $3.64 per share.

As described in Note 15 - Equity-Based Compensation, during the fiscal year ended September 30, 2018, employees holding options under the 2010 Non-Plan Stock Option Agreement exercised all options to purchase 768,984 shares of Class B common stock at an exercise price of $5.70 per share.

On December 21, 2016, the Company’s Board of Directors declared a special dividend to common stockholders of record as of the close of business on December 15, 2016 in the amount of $31.3 million ($0.754 per share).
