ANAHEIM, Calif., Feb. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Multi-Fineline Electronix, Inc. , a leading global provider of high-quality, technologically advanced flexible printed circuit and value-added component assembly solutions to the electronics industry, today announced that Craig Riedel, who is 51 years-old and has served as MFLEX's chief financial officer since November 1992, established a trading plan adopted in accordance with Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the company's insider trading policy.
Mr. Riedel's plan allows for transactions to take place between February 2008 and the end of January 2009. During this period, he will exercise options covering 83,430 shares and sell the resulting shares, during certain specified time periods during plan. The options covering 2,355 of these shares will expire on December 14, 2008, with the remaining options expiring on January 31, 2009. In addition to the options subject to his trading plan, Mr. Riedel holds options covering 85,470 shares, restricted stock units, or RSUs, covering 6,334 shares and owns 3,075 shares of MFLEX stock.
Rule 10b5-1(c) allows individuals to adopt written plans when they are not in possession of any material, nonpublic information to sell shares under pre-arranged terms. The rule allows individuals adopting such plans to sell shares over a specified period of time, even if subsequent material and nonpublic information becomes available to them. Using these plans, officers and directors can gradually diversify their investment portfolios, can spread stock trades out over an extended period of time to reduce any significant market impact and can avoid concerns about whether they had material, nonpublic information when they traded in the company's stock.
