On September 23, 2020, the Company and Computershare Trust Company, N.A., as Rights Agent (the “Rights Agent”), entered into an Amendment No. 7 (the “Amendment”) to the Company’s Rights Agreement, dated as of December 20, 2012, by and between the Company and the Rights Agent (as amended to date, the “Rights Agreement”).  The Amendment accelerates the expiration date of the Rights Agreement from December 31, 2021 to September 23, 2020, such that, as at the close of business on September 23, 2020, the Rights will expire and no longer be outstanding and the Rights Agreement will terminate and be of no further force or effect.
In connection with the expiration of the Rights and termination of the Rights Agreement, the Company filed a Certificate of Elimination with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware on September 23, 2020 (the “Certificate of Elimination”) that, effective upon filing, eliminated from the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation all matters set forth in the Certificate of Designations, Preferences, and Relative Rights and Limitations of Series A Junior Preferred Stock with respect to the Series A Junior Preferred Stock (the “Preferred Stock”), and returned the Preferred Stock to authorized but undesignated shares of the Company’s preferred stock. No shares of Preferred Stock were issued or outstanding at the time of the filing of the Certificate of Elimination.
The foregoing description of the Amendment and Certificate of Elimination is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Amendment and the Certificate of Elimination, a copy of which are attached hereto as Exhibit 4.8 and Exhibit 4.9, respectively, and are incorporated herein by reference.
