SunLink Health Systems to Renew Its Shareholder Rights Plan
ATLANTA --(Business Wire)--
SunLink Health Systems, Inc. (NYSE MKT:SSY) today announced that its
board of directors adopted a new Shareholder Rights Plan (the "Plan") on
February 10, 2014. The Plan is intended to encourage fair treatment of
shareholders should a take-over bid be made for SunLink Health Systems,
and provide the Board of Directors of SunLink Health Systems (the
"Board") and the shareholders more time to consider any unsolicited
take-over bid. Unless otherwise terminated in accordance with its terms,
the Plan will terminate on February 9, 2021.
The Rights issued under the Plan will become exercisable only when a
person (including any party related to it) acquires or announces its
intention o acquire 20% or more of the outstanding shares of SunLink
Health Systems. Should such acquisition occur, each right will, upon
exercise, entitle a right holder other than the acquiring person or
related persons to purchase shares of SunLink Health Systems at a
substantial discount to the market price at the time. The Plan is
similar to SunLink's previous Shareholder Rights Plan adopted by the
company in 2004 which expired on February 8, 2014.
