MIAMI -- (Business Wire)
World Fuel Services Corporation (NYSE:INT) today announced that its
president and chief executive officer, Michael J. Kasbar, has entered
into a pre-arranged, non-discretionary stock trading plan.
Under the newly adopted plan, beginning on February 26, 2013 and ending
on December 31, 2013, Mr. Kasbar may sell up to 81,693 shares of the
Company’s common stock, which represents approximately 7% of his
holdings. In addition, beginning on February 26, 2013 and ending on
March 15, 2013, Mr. Kasbar may convert up to 100,000 stock-settled stock
appreciation rights that expire on March 15, 2013 (“SSARs”) and sell the
shares that he acquires from such exercise and conversion. The number of
shares acquired from the conversion of the SSARs will be equal in value
to the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the conversion
date less the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the date
the SSARs were granted, multiplied by the number of SSARs converted.
The sales are being made for diversification and estate and tax planning
purposes and will be publicly disclosed through Form 4 filings with the
Securities and Exchange Commission. The plan was adopted in accordance
with guidelines specified under Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange
Act of 1934, as amended, and World Fuel Services’ policies regarding
stock transactions. Rule 10b5-1 permits individuals who are not in
possession of material, non-public information at the time the plan is
adopted to establish pre-arranged plans to buy or sell company stock.
These plans allow individuals to achieve prudent and gradual asset
diversification over time.
