Landec Corporation Executive Officer Adopts Rule 10b5-1 Trading Plan

Landec Corporation (Nasdaq:LNDC), a developer and marketer of technology-based polymer products for food, agricultural and licensed partner applications, today announced that its Chairman and CEO, Gary Steele, age 62, has adopted a pre-arranged stock trading plan to sell a portion of his Landec common stock over time as part of an individual long-term strategy for asset diversification and tax planning. The stock trading plan was adopted in accordance with guidelines specified under Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Landec’s policies regarding stock transactions.

Rule 10b5-1 allows corporate officers and directors to adopt written, pre-arranged stock trading plans. Using these plans, insiders can gradually diversify their investment portfolios, can spread stock trades out over an extended period of time to reduce any market impact and can avoid concerns about whether they had material, non-public information when they sold their stock.

Under Mr. Steele’s Rule 10b5-1 Plan, he may sell up to 170,859 shares of currently owned Landec common stock, representing less than 1% of Landec’s outstanding stock, subject to certain monthly sale limitations and market price thresholds set forth in the Plan. The Plan terminates once the share limit is reached or July 31, 2012, whichever is sooner.

The transactions under the Plan will be disclosed publicly through Form 144 and Form 4 filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
