SALEM, NH / ACCESSWIRE / August 25, 2020 / ProPhotonix Limited (London Stock Exchange - AIM:PPIX, OTC:STKR), a leading technology designer and manufacturer of LED illumination systems and laser diode modules, today announces the extension of the existing Shareholder Rights Plan.

The Board of Directors of ProPhotonix have unanimously approved extension of the Company's Rights Plan (the "Plan") until August 28, 2023. The Plan is designed to ensure that all shareholders of the Company realize the long‐term value of their investment in the Company; that they receive fair and equal treatment in the event of a potential takeover of the Company; that they are protected in the event of any of a two‐tier or partial tender offer, open market accumulations and other tactics designed to gain control of the Company without the payment of a fair price by an offeror; and to enhance the Board of Directors' ability to negotiate with a prospective acquirer. The Board determined that extension of the Plan is in the best interest of the Company's shareholders.

The Plan and the extension of the Plan were adopted in accordance with Delaware law. As set out on the Company's website, the Company is not subject to the City Code on Takeovers and Mergers.
