SCHAFFHAUSEN, Switzerland -- (Business Wire)
Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN) announced today that it has adopted a Rule
10b5-1 plan (the “Plan”) in connection with the $300 million share
repurchase authorization that was approved by the company’s board of
directors on February 15, 2013.
A plan under Rule 10b5-1 allows a company to repurchase its shares at
times when it otherwise might be prevented from doing so under insider
trading laws or because of self-imposed trading blackout periods. A
broker selected by Garmin will have the authority under the terms and
limitations specified in the Plan to repurchase shares on the company’s
behalf in accordance with the terms of the Plan. Because the repurchases
under the Plan are subject to certain pricing parameters, there is no
guarantee as to the exact number of shares that will be repurchased
under the Plan, or that there will be any repurchases pursuant to the
