On January 31, 2017, Joseph F. Puishys, Chief Executive Officer of Apogee Enterprises, Inc. (Apogee), entered into a trading plan in accordance with Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act, under which he intends to exercise 100,000 stock options and sell the underlying shares of Apogee common stock, subject to specified price limits, beginning May 1, 2017 and continuing from time to time through May 1, 2018.
Mr. Puishys continues to be one of Apogees 35 largest shareholders. He holds 172,171 shares of Apogee common stock, well in excess of Apogees stock holding guideline of five times his base salary. This process will facilitate orderly exercise of his stock options and sale of common stock to minimize any market impact and avoid any concerns about the timing of the transactions.
Rule 10b5-1 permits individuals who are not then in possession of material non-public information to establish pre-arranged plans to trade stock. The rule allows individuals to buy or sell shares of stock at a specific price in the future, regardless of any subsequent material non-public information.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
