Navistar International Corp. (NYSE:NAV) revealed a stockholder rights initiative with a 15% trigger, a proposal to discourage a possible hostile takeover that appears less than a week following protester investor Mark Rachesky revealed his 13.6% interest in the truck manufacturer.
A rights plan which is also called as a “poison pill” frequently is used to prevent possible hostile takeover bids by providing other stockholders the permission to purchase more shares at a discount if one stockholder purchases a few percentage of the firm’s stock. The proposal is official for one year.
Mr. Rachesky, an earlier protege of billionaire investor Carl Icahn, stated in a securities filing previous week that he judged the shares undervalued and that his company, MHR Fund Management LLC, showed that it might be involved in discussions with Navistar executives regarding the firm’s processes. He provided no suggestions regarding its policy for the investment.
