Amendments included in such Form 8-K and preliminary proxy statement are incorporated herein by reference and capitalized terms used herein are used as defined in such preliminary proxy statement unless otherwise defined herein.

 

On August 7, 2011, the Charter Amendments were unanimously approved by all of the TDS directors, including all independent directors.  On the same day, the Trustees advised the TDS Board they support and intend to vote in favor of the Charter Amendments on behalf of the Voting Trust.

 

Except as disclosed or incorporated by reference herein, the Voting Trust does not have any current intention, plan or proposal with respect to: (a) the acquisition by any person of additional securities of the Issuer, or the disposition of securities of the Issuer; (b) an extraordinary corporate transaction, such as a merger, reorganization or liquidation, involving the Issuer or any of its subsidiaries; (c) a sale or transfer of a material amount of assets of the Issuer or any of its subsidiaries; (d) any change in the present board of directors or management of the Issuer, including any plans or proposals to change the number or term of directors or to fill any existing vacancies on the board; (e) any material change in the present capitalization or dividend policy of the Issuer; (f) any other material change in the Issuer’s business or corporate structure; (g) changes in the Issuer’s charter, bylaws or instruments corresponding thereto or other actions which may impede the acquisition of control of the Issuer by any person; (h) causing a class of securities of the Issuer to be delisted from a national securities exchange, if any, or cease to be authorized to be quoted in an inter-dealer quotation system of a registered national securities association; (i) a class of equity securities of the Issuer becoming eligible for termination of a registration pursuant to Section 12(g)(4) of the Act; or (j) any action similar to any of those enumerated above.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Trustees retain the right to change their intent, including to acquire additional securities from time to time, or to dispose of all or part of the securities beneficially owned by the Voting Trust in any manner permitted by the terms of the Voting Trust and applicable law.

 

Item 5.    Interest in Securities of the Issuer.

The Special Common Shares have no votes in matters other than the election of such directors except as required by law.  The holders of Series A Common Shares are entitled to elect eight of the twelve directors of the Issuer.  The Series A Common Shares also have ten votes per share in matters other than the election of directors and, accordingly, the Series A Common Shares held by the Voting Trust represent approximately 53.6% of the combined voting power of the Issuer.3   Therefore, the Voting Trust elects a majority of the directors and directs a majority of the combined voting power of the Issuer in matters other than the election of directors.

The Voting Trust holds Special Common Shares and Series A Common Shares and was created to facilitate long-standing relationships among the trust’s certificate holders.  Under the terms of the Voting Trust, the Trustees hold and vote the Special Common Shares and Series A Common Shares held in the trust.

 

The Voting Trust is the direct beneficial owner of Special Common Shares and Series A Common Shares, which are convertible on a share-for-share basis into Special Common Shares (or Common Shares – see
