Exercise of Rights definition

Exercise of Rights. The Rights are not exercisable until the Distribution Date and until the Company has received all required regulatory approvals for the issuance of the Shares. The Rights will expire June 17, 2008 unless such date is extended or unless the Rights are earlier redeemed by the Company or exchanged for Shares, in each case as described below. Rights may not be transferred, directly or indirectly, (i) to any person who is, or, as a result of the transfer would be, the beneficial owner of 15% or more of the Rights (including Rights that are null and void as described below), or (ii) to any affiliate or associate of any such person.
