|Item 1.01||Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.|
On February 12, 2021, the Board of Directors of Legacy Education Alliance, Inc. (the “Company”) approved an amendment (the “Amendment”) to the Rights Agreement dated as of February 16, 2017 by and between the Company and Broadridge Corporate Issuer Services, Inc., as Rights Agent, (the “Rights Agreement”) to (i) extend the Final Expiration Date, as defined in the Rights Agreement, to the close of business on February 15, 2023 and (ii) to provide for the construction of the Rights Agreement and all other related documents in a manner consistent with the extension of the Final Expiration Date.
The extension of the Final Expiration Date under the Rights Agreement was entered into to ensure that the Board of Directors would continue to have sufficient time to consider any proposal from a third party that might result in a change in control of the Company, to ensure that all stockholders receive fair and equal treatment in the event of any such a proposal, and to encourage any potential acquirer to negotiate with the Board of Directors. In addition, extending the Rights Agreement will guard against partial tender offers, open market accumulations and other coercive tactics aimed at gaining control of the Company without paying all stockholders a full control premium for their shares. The Rights Agreement was not amended in response to any specific takeover offer.
The foregoing summary of the Amendment does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Amendment, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 4.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
|Item 3.03||Material Modification to Rights of Security Holders.|
Please see the disclosure set forth under Item 1.01, which is incorporated by reference into this Item 3.03.
