Item 8.01 Other Events.

On November 23, 2010, Philip D. Barrett, a member of the Board of Directors of TigerLogic Corporation (the “Company”), adopted a pre-arranged trading plan (the “Plan”) designed to comply with Rule 10b5-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and the Company’s policies regarding stock transactions. Rule 10b5-1 permits individuals who are not in possession of material, non-public information at the time the plan is adopted to establish pre-arranged plans to buy or sell company stock. Using these plans, individuals can prudently and gradually diversify their investment portfolios over an extended period of time and avoid concerns about transactions occurring at a time when they might possess material non-public information.

The Plan provides for the sale of up to 36,000 shares of the Company’s common stock held by Mr. Barrett’s family trust in twelve equal installments of 3,000 shares each on the 10th day of each month (or the next trading day thereafter if such date falls on a weekend or a holiday) beginning on January 10, 2011. Unless earlier terminated in accordance with its terms, the Plan will expire on December 10, 2011. Shares will be sold under the Plan on the open market at prevailing market prices. All sales of common stock pursuant to the Plan will be disclosed publicly through Form 144 and Form 4 filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned thereunto duly authorized.
