Garmin® Adopts Rule 10b5-1 Plan in Conjunction with Share Repurchase Program
Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN) announced today that it has adopted a Rule 10b5-1 plan (the “Plan”) in connection with the $300 million share repurchase authorization that was approved by the company’s board of directors on February 13, 2015.
A plan under Rule 10b5-1 allows a company to repurchase its shares at times when it otherwise might be prevented from doing so under insider trading laws or because of self-imposed trading blackout periods. A broker selected by Garmin will have the authority under the terms and limitations specified in the Plan to repurchase shares on the company’s behalf in accordance with the terms of the Plan. Because the repurchases under the Plan are subject to certain pricing parameters, there is no guarantee as to the exact number of shares that will be repurchased under the Plan, or that there will be any repurchases pursuant to the Plan.
