Directors of Brickworks Limited are prohibited from engaging in insider trading and also from encouraging another person (eg, family members or business colleagues) to deal in the shares of the company when we have inside information. This extends to trading in the shares of Brickworks clients when we have inside information relating to that clients’ business.
Directors and Senior Management are permitted to trade in Brickworks shares during authorised share trading windows, which are for a period of six (6) weeks duration each commencing at:
Any person(s) involved in the business affairs of Brickworks Limited who wishes to trade during a trading window must still give consideration to whether that person holds any inside information and if so, the person should not trade in those shares. If insider trading is being conducted within such a ‘window’ then it is still an offence.
In exceptional circumstances, senior management and directors may trade outside these windows, providing they obtain approval from the Managing Director or Chairman respectively prior to trading.
This restriction does not apply to normal fixed monthly share purchases made by the trustee through the Brickworks Employee Share Plans. This policy applies to both Ordinary shares and Reset Preference Shares (PAVERS).
