Equity [Abstract]  
The Company's Board of Directors authorized a securities repurchase program for the Company to buy up to the remaining amount of its 7.00% Convertible Notes prior to maturity on June 15, 2020 and up to $5.0 million of its common stock and 7.375% Series A Preferred Stock, which commenced March 21, 2020. Purchases were made through the program until it expired on August 20, 2020.
As of September 30, 2020, the Company has a total of 5,010,814 depository shares outstanding, or approximately 50,108 whole shares of its 7.375% Series A Preferred Stock. On March 30, 2020, the Company repurchased 8,913 depository shares of Series A Preferred Stock for approximately $162 thousand in cash.
See Note 13 ("Subsequent Events") for further information regarding the declaration of a dividend on the 7.375% Series A Preferred Stock.
As of September 30, 2020, the Company has 13,651,521 of common shares issued and outstanding. See Note 13 ("Subsequent Events") for further information regarding the declaration of a dividend on the common stock.
On October 30, 2018, the Company filed a shelf registration statement with the SEC, pursuant to which it registered 1,000,000 shares of common stock for issuance under its dividend reinvestment plan. As of September 30, 2020, the Company has issued 22,003 shares of common stock under its dividend reinvestment plan pursuant to the shelf, resulting in remaining availability (subject to the current limitation discussed below) of approximately 977,997 shares of common stock.
On November 9, 2018, the Company had a new shelf registration statement declared effective by the SEC replacing the Company's previously filed shelf registration statement, pursuant to which it may publicly offer additional debt or equity securities with an aggregate offering price of up to $600.0 million. As described elsewhere in this Report, EGC and Cox Oil have refused to provide the financial statement information concerning EGC required to be filed by the Company pursuant to SEC Regulation S-X. At least until it is able to file these EGC financial statements, the Company does not expect to be able to use this shelf registration statement, or the shelf registration statement filed for its dividend reinvestment plan, to sell its securities. As previously disclosed in the Company's Current Report on Form 8-K filed on April 24, 2019, the Company has suspended its dividend reinvestment plan.
The Company has engaged in dialogue with the staff of the SEC in an effort to shorten the period during which it does not use its registration statements. The Company does not expect this period to be shortened until the EGC financial statement information has been received and filed.
