FRANKLIN, Tenn., Feb. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Community Healthcare Trust Incorporated (NYSE: CHCT) today announced that its Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President Timothy Wallace entered into a 10b5-1 plan to acquire shares of the Company's common stock consistent with certain timing, volume and price limitations.

The trading plan was entered into on February 29, 2016 and will become effective April 4, 2016. Under the plan, Mr. Wallace will be able to purchase up to the lesser of $4,000,000 or 200,000 shares of the Company's common stock, subject to price and trading limitations.

Rule 10b5-1 permits corporate officers, directors and others to adopt written, pre-arranged stock trading plans when they are not in possession of material, non-public information. Using these plans, insiders may gradually acquire stock over a period of time regardless of any material, non-public information they may receive after adopting a plan. In accordance with Rule 10b5-1, Mr. Wallace will have no discretion over purchases under the plan. Because the purchases under the plan are subject to certain market pricing parameters and trading limitations, there is no guarantee as to the exact number of shares that will be purchased under the plan, or that there will be any purchases pursuant to the plan. Details of the transactions will be publicly available through Form 4 filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
