The aggregate purchase price was $193.9 million. The Company repurchased the shares using available cash and borrowings under its senior secured credit facility. The transaction did not impact the Company's remaining repurchase authority.
Annual Dividend
On October 26, 2021, the Company’s Board of Directors approved an annual cash dividend on CDI’s common stock of $0.667 per outstanding share, a 7 percent increase over the prior year. The dividend was paid on January 7, 2022, to shareholders of record as of the close of business on December 3, 2021, with an aggregate cash dividend paid to each stockholder rounded to the nearest whole cent. This marked the eleventh consecutive year that the Company increased the dividend.

We plan to use our operating cash flows, cash on hand, and the proceeds from our anticipated land sales to fund our capital project expenditures.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures
In addition to the results provided in accordance with GAAP, the Company also uses non-GAAP measures, including adjusted net income, adjusted net income from continuing operations, adjusted diluted EPS, EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) and Adjusted EBITDA.
6


The Company uses non-GAAP measures as a key performance measure of the results of operations for purposes of evaluating performance internally. These measures facilitate comparison of operating performance between periods and help investors to better understand the operating results of the Company by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of the Company's core business or operating results. The Company believes the use of these measures enables management and investors to evaluate and compare, from period to period, the Company’s operating performance in a meaningful and consistent manner. The non-GAAP measures are a supplemental measure of our performance that is not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP, and should not be considered as an alternative to, or more meaningful than, net income or diluted EPS (as determined in accordance with GAAP) as a measure of our operating results.
We use Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate segment performance, develop strategy and allocate resources. We utilize the Adjusted EBITDA metric to provide a more accurate measure of our core operating results and enable management and investors to evaluate and compare from period to period our operating performance in a meaningful and consistent manner. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to operating income as an indicator of performance, as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity, or as an alternative to any other measure provided in accordance with GAAP. Our calculation of Adjusted EBITDA may be different from the calculation used by other companies and, therefore, comparability may be limited.
Adjusted net income, adjusted net income from continuing operations, and adjusted diluted EPS exclude discontinued operations net income or loss; net income or loss attributable to noncontrolling interest; changes in fair value for interest rate swaps related to Rivers Des Plaines; recapitalization costs related to the Rivers Des Plaines transaction; transaction expense, which includes acquisition and disposition related charges, Calder racing exit costs, as well as legal, accounting, and other deal-related expense; pre-opening expense; and certain other gains, charges, recoveries, and expenses.
Adjusted EBITDA includes our portion of EBITDA from our equity investments.
Adjusted EBITDA excludes:
Transaction expense, net which includes:
Acquisition, disposition, and land sale related charges; and
Other transaction expense, including legal, accounting, and other deal-related expense.
Stock-based compensation expense;
Rivers Des Plaines' impact on our investments in unconsolidated affiliates from:
The impact of changes in fair value of interest rate swaps; and
Legal reserves and transaction costs.
Asset impairments;
Legal reserves;
Pre-opening expense; and
Other charges, recoveries and expenses
For segment reporting, Adjusted EBITDA includes intercompany revenue and expense totals that are eliminated in the consolidated statements of comprehensive income (loss). See the Reconciliation of Comprehensive Income (Loss) to Adjusted EBITDA included herewith for additional information.
