The rights will initially trade only with the shares of common stock to which they are attached and generally become exercisable only if a person or group becomes an "Acquiring Person" (as defined in the plan) by accumulating "Beneficial Ownership" (as defined in the plan) of 15% or more of the WPCS outstanding common stock. At such time, each right will entitle the shareholder (other than the Acquiring Person) to purchase WPCS shares of preferred stock or, in some circumstances, shares of the Acquiring Person's common stock, having a value equal to twice the exercise price of the right which is initially $15 per right."
"The rights plan provides that a person or group currently owning 15% or more of WPCS outstanding common stock will not be deemed an Acquiring Person if the person or group does not subsequently accumulate an additional 1% of the WPCS outstanding common stock through open market purchases, expansion of a group or other means. The rights plan requires a committee of independent directors to assess every five years whether the rights plan remains in the best interest of WPCS shareholders. Additional details regarding the rights plan, including a copy of the plan, will be outlined in WPCS filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. These filings will be available on www.sec.gov and WPCS will make available to its shareholders, upon request a Summary of Rights that describes the material terms of the rights plan."
