then-existing ownership percentage would be grandfathered, but the Rights would become exercisable if at any time after such announcement, the stockholder increases its ownership percentage.
Certain synthetic interests in securities created by derivative positions whether or not such interests are considered to be ownership of the underlying Common Stock or are reportable for purposes of Regulation 13D of the Securities Exchange Act are treated as beneficial ownership of the shares of Common Stock if such positions have an exercise or conversion privilege or a settlement payment or mechanism at a price related to the value of the Common Stock or a value determined in whole or in part with reference to, or derived in whole or in part from, the value of the Common Stock, and that increases in value as the value of the Common Stock increases or that provides to the holder an opportunity, directly or indirectly, to profit or share in any profit derived from any increase in the value of the Common Stock. Swaps dealers unassociated with any control intent or intent to evade the purposes of the Rights Agreement are excepted from such imputed beneficial ownership.
We refer to the date when the Rights become exercisable as the Distribution Date. Until that date, Common Stock certificates will also evidence the Rights, and any transfer of shares of Common Stock will constitute a transfer of the Rights. After that date, the Rights will separate from our Common Stock and be evidenced by book entry credits or by Rights certificates that we will mail to all eligible holders of Common Stock. Any Rights held by an Acquiring Person are void and may not be exercised.
Consequences of a Person or Group Becoming an Acquiring Person.
· Flip In. If a person or group becomes an Acquiring Person, all holders of Rights (other than the Acquiring Person and certain related parties, whose rights automatically become null and void) will have the right to receive, for the Purchase Price, shares of our Common Stock with a market value equal to twice the Purchase Price, based on the market price of our Common Stock prior to such acquisition.
· Flip Over. If our Company is acquired in a merger or similar transaction after the Shares Acquisition Date, all holders of Rights (other than the Acquiring Person and certain related parties, whose rights automatically become null and void) will have the right to receive, for the Purchase Price, shares of the acquiring corporation with a market value equal to twice the Purchase Price, based on the market price of the acquiring corporations stock, prior to such merger.
