MCLEAN, Va., March 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CYREN (NASDAQ: CYRN) today disclosed that several members of its executive team and board of directors have been actively buying CYREN shares in the open market. During the past quarter, several executives, including CEO Lior Samuelson and CFO Michael Myshrall, have purchased over 170,000 additional shares. Management and board members now own over 6.5 million shares, representing 16.8% of outstanding shares, independent of stock options.
CYREN allows employees and board members to trade shares and exercise stock options each quarter during the company's open trading window. As a NASDAQ Foreign Private Issuer, CYREN is not subject to the same filing requirements as NASDAQ domestic issuers, and therefore management is not required to file SEC Insider Form 4 disclosing insider trading information. As a result, insider holdings are only published once per year in the company's Form 20-F annual report.
CYREN's Form 20-F annual report disclosing insider holdings will be filed with the SEC prior to the April 30, 2016 deadline.
