Stockholder Rights Plan
On April 16, 2023, our Board of Directors (the “Board”) declared a dividend of one preferred share purchase right (“Right”) for each outstanding share of the Company’s common stock to the stockholders of record as of the close of business on April 28, 2023, and adopted a limited duration stockholder rights plan, effective immediately, as set forth in the Rights Agreement, dated as of April 16, 2023 (the “Rights Agreement”), by and between the Company and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, as rights agent. The Rights will expire on April 17, 2024 (“Final Expiration Date”) unless the rights are earlier redeemed or exchanged by the Company.
In general terms, the Rights Agreement works by imposing a significant penalty upon any person or group that acquires beneficial ownership of 12.5% (20% in the case of certain passive institutional investors) or more of the outstanding shares of Company’s common stock without the approval of our Board. The rights plan will reduce the likelihood that any entity, person or group gains control of Heliogen through open market accumulation without paying all stockholders an appropriate control premium or without providing our Board sufficient time to make informed judgments and take actions that are in the best interests of all stockholders.
