In a recent transaction, Neurocrine (NASDAQ:NBIX) Biosciences Inc. (NASDAQ:NBIX) director Sharp (OTC:SHCAY) Shalini sold a total of 1,106 shares of the company's stock, netting over $156,000. The sales took place at weighted average prices ranging from $140.81 to $142.33 per share, according to a new SEC filing.

The transactions were executed under a pre-arranged 10b5-1 trading plan, which allows company insiders to set up a trading schedule in advance to sell stocks at a predetermined time. This plan was adopted on November 27, 2023, and as per company policy, the director is not allowed to amend or modify the plan after its adoption.

The sales were part of a broader move that included the exercise of options to acquire the same number of shares at no cost. These options were granted to Shalini on May 17, 2023, and had fully vested at the time of the transaction.

The SEC filing also noted that every Restricted Stock Unit (RSU) represents a contingent right to receive one share of Neurocrine Biosciences common stock. These RSUs were granted and vested on the same day, indicating a strategic exercise and sale of shares by the director.

Investors and shareholders of Neurocrine Biosciences may request additional details from the company regarding the specific number of shares sold at each price point within the range.

Following these transactions, the director's ownership in the company has been adjusted to reflect the recent sales and exercised options. The document was signed by Darin Lippoldt, Attorney-in-Fact, on May 21, 2024.
