Item 8.01Other Events


Stock trading plans in accordance with Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, have been adopted or are soon to be adopted by several of the Company’s officers and directors. Under Rule 10b5-1, directors, officers and other employees who are not in possession of material non-public information may adopt a pre-arranged plan or contract for the sale of Company securities under specified conditions and at specified times. Using these 10b5-1 plans, individuals can gradually 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. The Company’s officers and directors plan to sell shares of common stock either from current holdings or through the exercise of stock options under plan specified price and volume limitations over a period beginning May 2014 through and up to June 2015 as follows: Geoffrey D. Osler, Chief Marketing Officer, up to 85,000 shares; Andrew U. Lee, Senior Vice President of Business Development, up to 11,000 shares; and the BD and DBG Living Trust, which is beneficially owned by David B. Goodson, Director, up to 200,000 shares. In total this represents up to 296,000, or 12.8%, of the 2,315,774 shares beneficially owned by all officers and directors as of February 28, 2014 as disclosed in the Company’s Definitive 14A filed on March 18, 2014 with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Shares may be sold under the plans on the open market at prevailing market prices and subject to minimum price thresholds specified in the plans. Transactions under the 10b5-1 plans will be reported to the Securities and Exchange Commission in accordance with applicable securities laws, rules and regulations. The Company 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.
