ABSTRACT
The article discusses the impact of Rule 10b5-1 of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on the stock trading programs of public company executives. It was said that public company executives are often hampered by corporate trading policies and securities regulations when selling company stock. Executives find it difficult to plan sales because when they are aware of material, nonpublic information, they cannot trade in company stock. Rule 10b5-1 offers executives an opportunity to structure trading programs. The rule permits executives to establish trading plans at a time when they are not aware of material, nonpublic information, under which they can later sell company stock even while aware of material, nonpublic information. Requirements to comply with Rule 10b5-1 was given.
