Temporary Suspension of Trading Under Registrant’s Employee Benefit Plans.
On November 13, 2020, Apartment Investment and Management Company (“Aimco”) received a notice required by Section 101(i)(2)(E) of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 regarding the commencement of a temporary blackout period, described below, under the Aimco 401(k) Retirement Plan (the “401(k) Plan”) resulting from the potential spin-off of Aimco’s interest in the newly created Apartment Income REIT Corp. to the holders of Apartment Investment and Management Company common stock (“Aimco Common Stock”). As a result of the spin-off (if consummated), for each share of Aimco Common Stock held in a participant’s account in the 401(k) Plan (if any), the account will receive one share of Apartment Income REIT Corp. common stock (“AIR Common Stock”). After the spin-off, each such 401(k) Plan account will hold both Aimco Common Stock and AIR Common Stock. The blackout period with respect to the Aimco Common Stock is necessary in order to process the new AIR Common Stock into the 401(k) Plan. Due to the spin-off (if consummated), participants in the 401(k) Plan will be temporarily unable to direct or diversify investments in individual accounts under the 401(k) Plan that hold investments in Aimco Common Stock, or obtain a loan, withdrawal or distribution from such accounts under the 401(k) Plan during the temporary blackout period, which is scheduled to begin at 4:00 p.m., Eastern Time, on December 14, 2020, and is expected to end on December 21, 2020, or sooner, if possible.
Pursuant to Section 306(a) of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, on November 19, 2020, Aimco sent a blackout trading restriction notice to its directors and executive officers informing them that, during the temporary blackout period described above, all of Aimco’s directors and executive officers will be unable to, directly or indirectly, purchase, sell or otherwise acquire or transfer any shares of Aimco Common Stock (including any stock options or derivative securities) if those securities were acquired in connection with employment or service as a director or executive officer of Aimco.
A copy of the blackout trading restriction notice, also referred to as a BTR Notice, is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference. Any inquiries regarding the temporary blackout period may be directed to Lisa Cohn (303) 691-4415, or by emailing email@example.com.
