The Form 4 indicates they sold 750,000 shares at a weighted average price of $74.2795 on January 18th, and another 464,000 shares at weighted price of $74.0791 on January 19th.  Perhaps this transaction was possibly made to keep them below the 10% ownership threshold, though that's purely speculation on our part.
