Servotronics, Inc. Announces Shareholder Rights Plan









ELMA, N.Y., Oct. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Servotronics, Inc. (NYSE MKT-SVT) announced today that its Board of Directors has adopted a Shareholder Rights Plan and declared a dividend distribution of one Preferred Share Purchase Right on each outstanding share of common stock.

The purpose of the Shareholder Rights Plan is to enhance Servotronics' ability to protect the interests of its shareholders from abusive takeover tactics and attempts to acquire shares from some or all of the shareholders at an inadequate price. The Plan is designed to help promote fair and equal treatment of all shareholders and satisfy their long term investment objectives.

The dividend distribution will be made as of the close of business on October 15, 2012, payable to stockholders of record on that date. The Rights will expire on October 15, 2022. The Rights distribution is not taxable to stockholders.

The Rights will be exercisable only if a person or group ("Acquiring Person") acquires 25% or more of Servotronics' common stock (excluding shares held by the Servotronics, Inc. Employee Stock Ownership Trust ["ESOT"]) or announces a tender offer the consummation of which would result in ownership by a person or group of that amount. The ESOT and/or Dr. Nicholas D. Trbovich, Chairman and CEO of the Company, cannot be an Acquiring Person, as defined. Each Right will entitle stockholders to buy one one-hundredth of a share of a new series of junior participating preferred stock at an exercise price of $32.00.

If Servotronics is acquired in a merger or other business combination transaction after a person has acquired 25% or more of the Company's outstanding common stock (excluding shares held by the ESOT), each Right will entitle its holder to purchase, at its then-current exercise price, a number of the acquiring company's common shares having a market value of three times such price. In addition, if a person or group acquires 25% or more of the outstanding Servotronics common stock exclusive of shares held by the ESOT, each Right will entitle its holder (other than such person or members of such group) to purchase, at its then-current exercise price, a number of Servotronics' common shares having a market value of three times such price.
