Medifast, Inc. (the “Company”) previously announced the intention to repurchase shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), pursuant to a program adopted in September 2014 (the “Repurchase Program”). As of June 14, 2018, there were approximately 850,000 shares of Common Stock available for repurchase under the Repurchase Program. The Company, in accordance with, and as a part of, the Repurchase Program implemented a Rule 10b5-1 repurchase plan (the “Original 10b5-1 Plan”) to facilitate repurchases of Common Stock under the Repurchase Program. The Original 10b5-1 Plan terminated on June 13, 2018 and the Company has adopted a new Rule 10b5-1 repurchase plan (the “New 10b5-1 Plan”) to facilitate its repurchases of Common Stock under the Repurchase Program. The New 10b5-1 Plan has been adopted in accordance with guidelines specified by Rule 10b5-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and the Company’s Insider Trading Policy, and all repurchases will be made in accordance with Rule 10b-18 of the Exchange Act.
The information presented in Item 7.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Exchange Act, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, unless the Company specifically states that the information is to be considered “filed” under the Exchange Act or specifically incorporates it by reference into a filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act.
