Item 8.01 Other Events.

 

Four executive officers and four directors have adopted trading plans pursuant to Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Plans”). The Plans were entered into for a variety of reasons including long-term financial planning, retirement planning, and diversification purposes.

 

Under Rule 10b5-1, directors, officers, and other employees who may be exposed from time to time to material non-public information may adopt a pre-arranged plan or contract at a time when they are not in possession of material non-public information for the sale of company securities under specified conditions and at specified times. Using these 10b5-1 plans, individuals gradually can diversify their investment portfolios, spread stock trades out over an extended period of time to reduce market impact, and avoid concerns about transactions occurring at a time when they might possess material non-public information. A Rule 10b5-1 plan also may allow an insider to exercise, on specific future dates, a stock option that may be nearing expiration, and simultaneously sell some or all of the shares underlying the option to generate the cash needed to pay the exercise price of the option and related income tax obligations. The Plans cover a maximum of 11,997,730 common shares; however, some, none or all of those common shares ultimately may be sold depending on the terms of the individual Plans and the trading price of the Company’s common shares.

 

Transactions under the Plans will be reported to the Securities and Exchange Commission in accordance with applicable securities laws, rules, and regulations. Zomedica Corp. does not undertake to report Rule 10b5-1 plans that may be adopted by any officers or directors in the future, or to report any modifications or termination of any publicly announced trading plan, except to the extent required by law.
