On September 4, 2018, Andrew M. Johnson, Executive Vice President, Chief Legal Officer and Secretary of 3D Systems Corporation (the “Company”), adopted a pre-arranged stock trading plan to sell up to 50,400 shares of the Company’s common stock over a 12- month period ending in October 2019. The transactions under the plan will be disclosed publicly through Form 144 and Form 4 filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
The plan was adopted in accordance with Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and the Company’s policies regarding stock transactions. Rule 10b5-1 permits officers, directors and stockholders to adopt pre-arranged stock trading plans when they are not in possession of material, non-public information. Using these plans, insiders may gradually diversify their investment portfolios and spread stock trades over a period of time regardless of any material, non-public information they may receive after adopting their plans. In accordance with Rule 10b5-1, Mr. Johnson will have no direction over the sales of his shares of the Company’s common stock pursuant to the plan.
The Company does not undertake any obligation to report Rule 10b5-1 trading plans that may be adopted by any of its officers, directors or stockholders in the future, or to report any modifications or terminations of any publicly announced plan, except to the extent required by law.
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.
