NEWARK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 07/31/14 -- IEC Electronics Corp. (NYSE MKT: IEC) (the "Company") announced today that its Board of Directors (the "Board") has adopted a Tax Benefit Preservation Plan (the "Plan") in an effort to preserve the value of its net operating loss carryforwards ("NOLs") under Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code (the "Code"). The Company's use of its NOLs could be substantially limited if the Company experiences an "ownership change" (as defined in Section 382 of the Code). In light of recent accumulations of a significant percentage of the Company's outstanding common stock, the Plan is intended to protect the Company's NOLs from potentially unfavorable tax treatment.
In connection with the adoption of the Plan, on July 31, 2014, the Board declared a non-taxable dividend of preferred share purchase rights ("Rights") for stockholders of record as of the close of business on August 15, 2014. The Rights become exercisable if any person or group acquires beneficial ownership of 4.99% or more of the Company's common stock or, in the case of any person or group that currently owns 4.99% or more of the common stock, upon the acquisition of additional shares by such person or group after July 31, 2014. The threshold may be amended, and the rights may be redeemed or terminated by the Board at any time prior to being triggered.
The Plan will expire on December 31, 2017, subject to earlier expiration in specific circumstances.
Additional information regarding the Plan, the dividend and the new series of preferred stock is contained in a Form 8-K and in a Registration Statement on Form 8-A that the Company is filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Baker Botts L.L.P. and Harris Beach PLLC are serving as the legal advisors to the Company.
