Universal Electronics Inc. (UEI), (NASDAQ: UEIC) announced Paul Arling, chairman and chief executive officer, has established a trading plan in accordance with Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act. Rule 10b5-1 permits individuals who are not then in possession of material nonpublic information to establish prearranged plans to buy or sell stock. The rule allows individuals to buy or sell shares of stock at a specific price in the future, regardless of any subsequent material nonpublic information.
Under the plan, Arling intends to exercise up to 80,000 employee stock options, which are set to expire in January 2015, and to immediately sell the underlying shares of UEI common stock beginning immediately and continuing from time to time until the expiration date of the options, subject to the market price of our common stock. This process will facilitate the orderly exercise of employee stock options and the sale of common stock for personal financial planning purposes with the goal of minimizing any market impact and avoiding any concerns about the timing of the transactions.
