While there's no set expiration for the program, the company expects to complete the buyback by the end of the calendar year, if market conditions permit.

The Cleveland-based company has finished a previous $200 million share repurchase program, announced last April, ahead of schedule. During its most recent buyback, American Greetings purchased 8.2 million Class A shares at an average price of $24.38 a share, excluding commissions.
