Atlassian Corporation Plc (NASDAQ: TEAM), a leading provider of team
collaboration and productivity software, today announced that Scott
Farquhar and Mike Cannon-Brookes, co-CEOs, co-founders and directors of
Atlassian, each adopted a new stock trading plan in February 2019 in
accordance with guidelines specified under Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities
and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and the policies of Atlassian
regarding stock transactions.
These pre-arranged trading plans were adopted in order to allow Mr.
Farquhar and Mr. Cannon-Brookes to sell a portion of their Atlassian
stock over time as part of their long-term strategies for individual
asset diversification and liquidity. Using these new trading plans, Mr.
Farquhar and Mr. Cannon-Brookes will spread their stock trades out over
a period of a year from the time their current trading plans expire in
June 2019 to reduce market impact on any given day. All sales of shares
under Mr. Farquhar’s and Mr. Cannon-Brookes’ trading plans are subject
to volume limitations, pursuant to Rule 144, which limits the amount of
shares that can be sold in any three-month period.
In the aggregate, Mr. Farquhar and Mr. Cannon-Brookes currently hold
approximately 123.48 million Class B ordinary shares and 470,944 Class A
ordinary shares, which represent approximately 51.06% of Atlassian’s
outstanding Class B and Class A ordinary shares, taken together, and
approximately 90.48% of the voting power. Under the terms of the new
trading plans, Mr. Farquhar and Mr. Cannon-Brookes each intends to sell
up to approximately 2.44 million Class B ordinary shares (with such
shares converting into Class A ordinary shares prior to sale). If Mr.
Farquhar and Mr. Cannon-Brookes complete all the planned sales under
their current and new trading plans, they would continue to collectively
own approximately 118.92 million Class B ordinary shares, which would
represent approximately 48.98% of Atlassian’s outstanding Class B and
Class A ordinary shares, taken together, and approximately 89.81% of the
voting power (assuming no other issuances, repurchases, sales or
conversions of Atlassian’s capital stock occur). Each Class B ordinary
share is entitled to ten votes and each Class A ordinary share is
entitled to one vote.
