Form 144 is the notice of an intended sale and is required when an executive officer, director, or other affiliate of a company is selling that company's stock. It must be filed with the SEC when an order is placed with a broker to sell the stock. Form 144 is not required if the number of shares does not exceed 500 and the aggregate sale price does not exceed $10,000. The filing is effective for a maximum of three months.
Alert on mandatory electronic filing: The SEC has adopted rules that require Form 144 to be filed electronically with an online fillable form on the EDGAR system. The requirement to file Form 144 electronically is effective from April 13, 2023. For details, see an FAQ elsewhere on this website.
