Rule 144 Matters
Rule 144 matters are among the issues that executives or directors (also
called affiliates) in public companies sometimes find themselves dealing
with. Corporate executives and directors tend to have restricted stock
or control stock, which allows them to maintain significant ownership
and controlling influence in their companies. Restricted securities and
control securities can only be sold in the public marketplace when certain
criteria under Rule 144 (a Securities and Exchange Commission rule) are
met. Compliance with this rule allows for the shares to be sold without
being registered with the SEC, which would normally be required. Here
are the five conditions that must be met under Rule 144:
- Completion of the prescribed holding period
- Sufficient public information on the issuing company
- Compliance with a trading volume formula, which determines what percentage
or volume of the shares can be sold within a certain period of time (for
- Use of an ordinary brokerage transaction for the sale (for affiliates)
- Submission of a Notice of Proposed Sale to the SEC and completion of the
sale within three months of the notice; notice only required when sale
meets certain criteria (for affiliates)
If you are an executive or director who is planning on selling restricted
or control stock under Rule 144, you can turn to our legal team for legal support!
