On September 24, 2009, Pulte Homes, Inc. (Pulte) entered into a second amendment (the Rights Amendment) to the Section 382 Rights Agreement between Pulte and Computershare Trust Company, N.A., as rights agent, dated as of March 5, 2009, as amended as of April 7, 2009 (as amended, the Rights Plan).
The Rights Amendment revised the definitions of beneficial owner, beneficial ownership and beneficially own such that a person will be deemed a beneficial owner of, and will be deemed to have beneficial ownership and will be deemed to beneficially own any securities which such person directly owns, or would be deemed to constructively own, pursuant to Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, and the Treasury Regulations promulgated thereunder.
The Rights Amendment also made a number of revisions to the expiration date of the rights. The final expiration date was changed from March 16, 2019 to June 1, 2013. In addition, the Rights Amendment deleted the provision that the rights would expire when the board of directors of Pulte determined that the Rights Plan was no longer in the best interests of Pulte and replaced it with the provision that the rights will expire on June 1, 2010, if the shareholders of Pulte do not approve the Rights Plan at the 2010 Annual Meeting of Shareholders by the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the voting power of the outstanding common shares of Pulte entitled to vote, and voting together without regard to class, and that are present, or represented by proxy and voted on the proposal to approve the Rights Plan.
The foregoing summary of the Rights Amendment is qualified in its entirety by the terms and conditions of the Rights Amendment, which is filed as Exhibit 4.1 to this report and is incorporated herein by reference.
