Board Adopts Shareholder Rights Plan

Oshkosh also announced that its Board of Directors has adopted a shareholder rights plan (the “Rights Plan”) and declared a dividend of one right on each outstanding share of the Company’s common stock.

The Rights Plan is intended to enable all shareholders to realize the long-term value of their investment in the Company and to protect them from unfair or coercive takeover tactics. The Rights Plan is intended to deter such tactics and provide the Board of Directors of the Company with sufficient time to consider any and all alternatives to such tactics and does not prevent the Board from considering or accepting an offer for the Company if the Board believes such action is fair, advisable and in the best interests of the Company’s shareholders. The Board of Directors of the Company deemed the adoption of the Rights Plan in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders.
