According to Unilever’s ‘Share Dealing Code’, dealing in Unilever shares is prohibited for Directors and other Unilever designated insiders during closed periods. A closed period runs from the first day of a quarter until the day of the announcement of the results over the preceding quarter. Generally this covers a period of three to four weeks for each quarter.
Unilever’s Share Dealing Code also stipulates that an insider should obtain prior clearance, even in open periods, from the appropriate Corporate Executive before dealing. If clearance has been provided, dealings should be made as soon as possible and must be completed within the next two business days.
Unilever shares are not held for short-term considerations. Therefore, shares should not be sold within one year of purchase and purchase should not be made within one year of any sale.
Pursuant to Dutch and English law and regulations, share dealings by Directors and members of the Unilever Leadership Executive should be notified to the Netherlands Authority for the Financial Market (AFM) and the London Stock Exchange respectively.
