WHEREAS, the Trust Beneficially Owns shares of the Companys Class B Common Stock, par value $0.01 per share (the Class B Common Stock); and
WHEREAS, the Parties desire to set forth certain agreements herein.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual covenants and agreements contained herein, and intending to be legally bound hereby, the Parties hereby agree as follows:
OWNERSHIP AND ACQUISITION OF COVERED VOTING SECURITIES
Section 1.01. Murdoch Family Interests Ownership of Covered Voting Securities.
(a) The Trust agrees that it and its Subsidiaries, if any, shall not, during the term of this Agreement, directly or indirectly, alone or in concert with others, own, acquire, offer to acquire, or agree or enter into any understanding or arrangement to acquire, whether by purchase, tender or exchange offer, merger, through the acquisition of control of another Person, by joining a partnership, syndicate or other group (including any group of Persons that would be treated as a single person under Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act), through a voting agreement, proxy, swap or hedging or other derivative transactions or otherwise, any Covered Voting Securities or any rights (including voting rights) decoupled from the underlying Covered Voting Securities that to the Trusts Knowledge would result in, or following which, the (a) the Murdoch Family Interests and (b) any other Person(s) (i) acting in concert or having any agreement, arrangement or understanding with the Trust or (ii) that is a member of any partnership, syndicate or other group (including any group of Persons that would be treated as a single person under Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act) with the Trust, in the case of each of clauses (i) and (ii), in respect of Covered Voting Securities (any of the Persons described in this clause (b), a Group Member), collectively having Beneficial Ownership of Covered Voting Securities in the aggregate representing more than 44.0% of the voting power of the Company Full Voting Shares outstanding at such time (the Ownership Threshold), or that to the Trusts Knowledge would result in an increase in the Trusts Beneficial Ownership of Class B Common Stock in excess of the Annual Threshold in any twelve (12)-month period.
(b) The foregoing notwithstanding, the Trust may request, on a confidential basis, that the Company approve in advance an action that would otherwise not be permitted pursuant to Section 1.01(a). Any such approval may be provided on behalf of the Company by, and only by, a majority vote of the Independent Directors or a majority vote of the members of a Company Independent Committee (such vote, in either case, Independent Approval), and such approval may be granted or denied in such Independent Directors or Company Independent
- 1 -
Committees sole discretion. No Independent Approval shall be required pursuant to this Agreement to effect any transaction in respect of which the holders of shares of Class A Common Stock are entitled to vote pursuant to Article IV, Section 4(a)(i)(1)(C) of the Companys Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation and as to which the requisite stockholder approval is obtained.
Section 1.02. Company Acquisition of Covered Voting Securities. The Company agrees that it shall not, and shall cause its Subsidiaries not to, directly or indirectly, acquire or agree to acquire by share repurchase, tender or exchange offer or other similar action, Covered Voting Securities if, to the Companys Knowledge, such acquisition or agreement would:
(a) result in the Murdoch Family Interests and Group Members collectively having Beneficial Ownership of Covered Voting Securities in the aggregate representing more than the Ownership Threshold; or
(b) when combined with all other acquisitions of Covered Voting Securities by the Company and the Trust during the twelve (12)-month period immediately prior to the applicable acquisition or agreement, result in the percentage of outstanding shares of Class B Common Stock Beneficially Owned in the aggregate by the Trust to increase by more than 1.75% (calculated in a manner consistent with the rules and regulations of the Commission, the Annual Threshold) in such twelve (12)-month period.
Section 1.03. Cooperation.
(a) To the extent such information is not publicly disclosed, the Company shall promptly inform the Trust, on a confidential basis, regarding any acquisitions by the Company or its Subsidiaries of Class B Common Stock.
(b) To the extent such information is not publicly disclosed, the Trust shall promptly inform the Company, on a confidential basis, regarding any acquisitions or dispositions of Beneficial Ownership of Covered Voting Securities by the Trust, or to the Trusts Knowledge, any Group Member.
(c) In connection with the record date for each meeting of stockholders of the Company during the period that this Agreement is in effect, the Trust will seek to confirm with each Murdoch Individual, in each case as of such record date, (i) the Beneficial Ownership of Covered Voting Securities of such Murdoch Individual and (ii) the Beneficial Ownership of Covered Voting Securities of each Murdoch Covered Person with respect to such Murdoch Individual (clauses (i) and (ii) collectively, the Requested Information). The Trust will report the results of such confirmation (including, if applicable, any failures of a Murdoch Individual to respond) in writing to the Company, together with the Beneficial Ownership of Covered Voting Securities of the Trust and, to the Trusts Knowledge, any Group Member, as of such record date, on the earlier of the (x) tenth (10th) business day following such record date and (y) date that is two (2) business days prior to the applicable meeting of the Companys stockholders.
(d) Upon the written request of the Company, the Trust will from time to time seek to confirm with each Murdoch Individual the Requested Information for such Murdoch Individual and each Murdoch Covered Person as of a date identified by the Company, and
- 2 -
provide the Requested Information to the Company, together with the Beneficial Ownership of the Trust and, to the Trusts Knowledge, any Group Member, as promptly as reasonably practicable following such request, if the Company:
(i) is required by any Governmental Authority to provide updated information with respect to such Requested Information;
(ii) reasonably deems it necessary to determine the Beneficial Ownership of any of the Murdoch Family Interests or any Group Member to ensure that a proposed repurchase of Covered Voting Securities does not result in (x) the Murdoch Family Interests, together with any Group Member, having Beneficial Ownership in excess of the Ownership Threshold or (y) the Trust having Beneficial Ownership in excess of the Annual Threshold; or
(iii) reasonably deems it necessary to determine compliance with Section 1.04.
(e) If the Trust or the Company reasonably believes there may have been a material change in the Beneficial Ownership of any Covered Voting Securities by any Murdoch Individual or any Murdoch Covered Person, the Trust will seek to confirm (on the request of the Company, if applicable) the Requested Information and report the results of such confirmation (including, if applicable, any failures of a Murdoch Individual to respond) in writing to the Company as promptly as reasonably practicable.
(f) The Company and the Trust agree to keep confidential any Requested Information reported to the Company, except as required by Law.
Section 1.04. Treatment of Excess Shares in Specified Circumstances. In the event that, as of the record date for any annual or special meeting of stockholders of the Company, to the Trusts Knowledge the aggregate Beneficial Ownership of Covered Voting Securities by the Murdoch Family Interests exceeds the Ownership Threshold, (such excess number of Covered Voting Securities, the Excess Shares), the Trust will cause such Excess Shares (a) not to be voted on any matter at such meeting of the Companys stockholders to the extent that the sum of (i) the votes of the Covered Voting Securities Beneficially Owned by the Trust on such matter and (ii) the votes of the Covered Securities Beneficially Owned by any other Murdoch Family Interest that are voted for the same outcome on such matter as the votes in clause (i) (to the extent known to the Company or the Trust) would exceed the Ownership Threshold; or (b) to be voted otherwise in the discretion of the Trust (subject to compliance with clause (a)).
Section 1.05. Notice of Distribution of Covered Voting Securities. Not less than four (4) months (or such shorter period as may be authorized by Independent Approval) prior to any distribution by the Trust of Covered Voting Securities of the type described in Section 4.07, the Trust shall provide written notice to the Company (a Distribution Notice), which Distribution Notice shall set forth (a) the Trusts good faith estimate of the anticipated date of such distribution and (b) the Trusts plan to effect such distribution, including, if such distribution is not effected through a dispersed public offering, the identities of the Persons anticipated to
