Item 8.01 Other Events
William C. Mulligan, a member of the Board of Directors of Universal Electronics Inc., has established a new trading plan with an effective date of March 31, 2021, in accordance with Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act. Rule 10b5-1 promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 permits an individual who is not then in possession of material nonpublic information to establish a prearranged plan to buy or sell stock. The rule allows an individual to buy or sell shares of stock at a specific price in the future, regardless of any subsequent material nonpublic information.
Under the plan, Mr. Mulligan intends to sell no more than 5,000 shares of Universal Electronics common stock owned by him from time to time commencing April 8, 2021 and continuing until September 30, 2021, subject to certain specified price limits. These shares were issued to him as part of his compensation as an outside director. This plan will facilitate the orderly sale of common stock for Mr. Mulligan’s personal financial planning purposes with the goal of minimizing any market impact and avoiding any concerns about the timing of the transactions.
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.
