Item 8.01Other Events.

 

On September 18, 2017 and September 22, 2017, respectively, Clarus Corporation (the “Company”) delivered letters (individually, a “Letter” and collectively, the “Letters”) to each of Kennedy Capital Management, Inc. (“Kennedy”) and Wynnefield Capital, Inc. (“Wynnefield”) approving each of their respective requests to be permitted under the Company’s Rights Agreement dated as of February 12, 2008 to acquire beneficial ownership in excess of 4.9% of the Company’s outstanding shares of common stock. Such approval is conditioned upon, and subject to Kennedy and Wynnefield, respectively: (i) not increasing such beneficial ownership to in excess of 7.5% of the Company’s outstanding shares of common stock; (ii) remaining continuously eligible to report its ownership of the Company’s common stock on Schedule 13G; and (iii) increasing such beneficial ownership to in excess of 4.9% of the Company’s outstanding shares of common stock on or before the twelve month anniversary of the date of the respective Letters.

 

Furthermore, in the event that Kennedy or Wynnefield increases its respective beneficial ownership to in excess of 4.9% of the Company’s outstanding shares of common stock and then subsequently reduces its beneficial ownership to below 4.9%, the approval granted pursuant to their respective Letters shall immediately terminate and the applicable party would need to obtain a new approval from the Company’s Board of Directors before seeking to again increase its beneficial ownership to in excess of 4.9% of the Company’s outstanding shares of common stock.
