under what circumstances would the repurchase price be LESS THAN the purchase price?

I think the term is hot collateral which occurs when the specific security is in demand and is scarce to obtain then that situation may occur

it happens when you have to repo in pieces that you need for something else rather than just a cash investment. if you are going to repo a piece of collateral that is in high demand, you actually pay a premium to borrow the piece. That makes your sell back price lower than what you repo'd it in for.
