Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.

On November 11, 2019, John G. Morikis, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The Sherwin-Williams Company (“Sherwin-Williams”), adopted a pre-arranged stock trading plan (the “Plan”) designed to comply with Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Rule 10b5-1 permits individuals who are not in possession of material, non-public information at the time the plan is adopted to establish a pre-arranged plan to buy or sell company stock. For Mr. Morikis, the Plan will facilitate the orderly exercise of employee stock options and the sale of shares of Sherwin-Williams common stock acquired from such option exercises for personal financial planning purposes, with the goal of minimizing any market impact and avoiding any concerns about transactions occurring at a time when Mr. Morikis may possess material, non-public information. In accordance with Rule 10b5-1, Mr. Morikis will not have subsequent discretion or control over the timing or effectuation of any transactions under the Plan.

Under the terms of the Plan, Mr. Morikis may exercise up to 43,783 employee stock options and sell the shares acquired from such option exercises. The Plan provides for transactions to occur during specified periods through June 11, 2020.

Mr. Morikis continues to be subject to, and currently significantly exceeds, Sherwin-Williams’ stock ownership guidelines, pursuant to which he is required to hold shares of Sherwin-Williams stock equal in value to at least six times his base salary.

Any transactions under the Plan will be disclosed publicly through Form 4 and Form 144 (if applicable) filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.



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.
