Fortune Brands Home & Security (NYSE: FBHS), an industry-leading home and security products company, today announced the Company’s stockholder rights plan expired, in accordance with its terms, on October 3, 2012. Stockholders are not required to take any action as a result of this expiration. The Company adopted the plan in advance of its spin-off from Fortune Brands, Inc. on October 3, 2011.
“In view of the circumstances at the time the company was preparing to become an independent, publicly-traded business, adopting a stockholder rights plan was an appropriate step to protect stockholders,” said Chris Klein, chief executive officer, Fortune Brands Home & Security. “After customary evaluation of our corporate governance practices and policies, and after considering the performance of our business and stock over the past year and other factors, the Board decided to permit the stockholder rights plan to terminate upon the expiration of its initial one-year term.”
