Tandy Leather Factory Adopts Stockholder Rights Plan

Stocks in this article: TLF

FORT WORTH, Texas, June 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tandy Leather Factory, Inc. (Nasdaq:TLF) (the "Company") announced today that its Board of Directors has adopted a rights agreement (the "Rights Plan") designed to protect Company stockholders in the event of takeover action that would deny them the full value of their investment.

Pursuant to the Rights Plan, one right will be distributed to stockholders of the Company for each share of Company common stock owned of record by them as of the close of business on June 16, 2013. Initially, these rights will not be exercisable and will trade with the shares of Company common stock. If the rights become exercisable, each right will initially entitle stockholders to buy one one-thousandth of a share of a newly created series of preferred stock at an exercise price of $30.00 per right. The rights will become exercisable only if a person or group becomes an "Acquiring Person" by acquiring beneficial ownership of 20% or more of the Company's outstanding common stock, or commences a tender offer or exchange offer that would result in such person becoming an Acquiring Person. An exception has been included in the Rights Plan in order to ensure that certain owners, including their respective affiliates and associates, are not by virtue of their share ownership automatically deemed to be an Acquiring Person upon adoption of the Rights Plan unless any such owner subsequently acquires additional shares of Company common stock and after giving effect to such acquisition owns 20% or more of the outstanding Company common stock. 

If any person or group becomes an Acquiring Person, each right will entitle its holder to buy, at the exercise price, common stock of the Company having a value of two times the exercise price of the right. Rights held by an Acquiring Person become void. If the Company is acquired in a merger or other business combination after a person or group has become an Acquiring Person, each right will entitle its holder to buy, at the exercise price, shares of the acquiring company having a market value of two times the exercise price of the right. The Board of Directors may redeem the rights for $0.01 per right at any time before any person or group becomes an Acquiring Person. The distribution of the rights is not a taxable event for stockholders of the Company.
