MEDINA, Ohio, Jan. 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- RPM International Inc. (NYSE: RPM) announced today that Thomas C. Sullivan, chairman of the board of directors, will file a Form 4 to report his sale of approximately 500,000 shares of RPM common stock.

Sullivan, 69, is a former officer of the company who received options in 1997 that cover the shares which are the subject of the Form 4.

With the assistance of his independent financial advisors, the transaction will enable Sullivan to both diversify his personal holdings and raise cash for charitable donations.
