Aggregate 144 Market Volume

In February, the total reported value of Form 144s jumped 276% from January. This significant month-over-month increase in value is reflected in a 42% rise in the total number of shares registered to sell, as well as a 91% increase in forms filed. While February is typically a heavier month for Form 144 filings, this dramatic increase in value is primarily due to a few large filings. When last month's numbers are compared to February 2023, the value of Form 144s jumped 169%. This year-over-year increase was accompanied by a 322% rise in value pursuant to Rule 10b5-1 and a 75% increase in shares sold under a plan. The surge in Form 144 activity across the board in February has resulted in the largest monthly 144 value reported in the history of this publication.
