This excerpt taken from the TPTX 8-K filed May 16, 2005.
|The Rights will not be exercisable until:|
|||10 days after the public announcement that a person or group has become an Acquiring Person by obtaining beneficial ownership of 15% or more of our outstanding common stock, or, if earlier,|
|||10 business days (or a later date determined by our Board before any person or group becomes an Acquiring Person) after a person or group begins a tender or exchange offer which, if completed, would result in that person or group becoming an Acquiring Person.|
We refer to the date when the Rights become exercisable as the Distribution Date. Until that date, the common stock certificates will also evidence the Rights, and any transfer of shares of common stock will constitute a transfer of Rights. After that date, the Rights will separate from the 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.
Our Board may reduce the threshold at which a person or group becomes an Acquiring Person from 15% to not less than 10% of the outstanding common stock.
