On November 29, 2018, Crimson Wine Group, Ltd. (the “Company”) announced that the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of the Company previously authorized a stock repurchase program pursuant to which the Company may repurchase up to an aggregate of $2,000,000 of shares of the Company’s common stock.
In connection with the stock repurchase program, on November 26, 2018, the Company adopted a stock trading plan in accordance with Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), to repurchase shares of the Company’s common stock (the “10b5-1 Plan”). Under the Company’s 10b5-1 Plan, a broker will purchase up to an aggregate of $2,000,000 of shares of the Company’s common stock at prevailing market prices with a maximum price per share of $9.00, provided that in no event will purchases on any purchase day exceed 25% of the average daily trading volume reported for the Company’s common stock during the four calendar weeks preceding the week in which the relevant purchase is to be effected. All repurchases will be made in compliance with Rule 10b-18 of the Exchange Act.
The 10b5-1 Plan adopted by the Company is intended to comply with Rule 10b5-1 of the Exchange Act and the Company’s Insider Trading and Anti-Tipping Policy, which permit issuers, officers, directors or employees who are not then in possession of material non-public information to enter into a pre-arranged plan for buying or selling the Company’s common stock under specified conditions and at specified times.
On November 29, 2018, the Company also announced that the Board previously authorized a block repurchase of up to an aggregate of 250,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at prevailing market prices with a maximum price per share of $9.00, which is in addition to the $2,000,000 stock repurchase program. Such block repurchase, if any, will be made in compliance with Rule 10b-18 of the Exchange Act and only during open trading windows in accordance with the Company’s Insider Trading and Anti-Tipping Policy.
Any repurchases described in this Current Report on Form 8-K will be funded with available cash. The amount of the Company’s common stock repurchased, if any, will depend on market conditions, including the price of the Company’s common stock.
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.
