Item 1.01.           Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On October 15, 2019, Alaska Communications Systems Group, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), and Computershare Trust Company, N.A., as rights agent (the “Rights Agent”), entered into an amendment (the “Amendment”) to the Company’s Tax Benefits Preservation Plan, dated as of January 8, 2018 (the “Tax Benefits Preservation Plan”).

As a result, the Rights have expired and the Tax Benefits Preservation Plan has terminated.      

 

The foregoing description of the Amendment is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of each of (i) the Tax Benefits Preservation Plan which was attached as Exhibit 4.1 to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on January 9, 2018 and is incorporated herein by reference, and (ii) the Amendment which is filed as Exhibit 4.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.

In connection with termination of the Tax Benefits Preservation Plan and pursuant to Section 151(g) of the Delaware General Corporation Law, the Company intends to cause a Certificate of Elimination (the “Certificate of Elimination”) to be executed and filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware on or about October 17, 2019 to eliminate the 145,000 authorized shares of preferred stock of the Company that were designated as Series A Junior Participating Preferred Stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Series A Preferred Stock”), by a Certificate of Designation (the “Series A Certificate of Designation”) filed with the Office of the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware on January 9, 2018, which certificate established the voting powers, designations, preferences and relative, participating and other rights, and the qualifications, limitations and restrictions of the Series A Preferred Stock.
