Item 5.04 Temporary Suspension of Trading Under Registrant's Employee Benefit Plans.
On August 20, 2010, the administrator of the MoneyGram International, Inc. 401(k) Plan (the "Plan") delivered to MoneyGram International, Inc. (the "Company") a notice of a blackout period under the Plan pursuant to Section 101(i)(2)(E) of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended. Consequently, on August 26, 2010, the Company provided notice to its directors and executive officers informing them of a blackout period for the Plan and the trading restrictions that apply to them during the blackout period under Section 306 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Regulation BTR (the "BTR Notice").
The blackout period is necessary in order to implement the change of the Plan’s trustee and record-keeper from T. Rowe Price to Wells Fargo. During the blackout period, participants in the Plan will be unable to direct or diversify their investments, including investments in the Company’s Common Stock, par value $0.01 (the "Common Stock"), or obtain a loan or distribution from the Plan. The blackout period will begin on September 23, 2010 at 4:00 pm EDT and will end on October 11, 2010 at 10:00 am EDT. During the blackout period, directors and executive officers are prohibited from, directly or indirectly, purchasing, selling, or otherwise transferring any Common Stock or other equity or derivative securities of the Company acquired in connection with their service or employment as directors or executive officers of the Company.
During the blackout period and for a period of two years thereafter, stockholders and other interested persons may obtain, without charge, information regarding the blackout period by contacting Corinna Ulrich, VP, Associate General Counsel and Assistant Secretary, at MoneyGram International, Inc., 2828 North Harwood Street, Dallas, Texas, 75201, or by telephone at (214) 999-7551.
A copy of the BTR Notice to directors and executive officers is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
