J.C. Penney lowers poison pill trigger to protect tax carryforwards
Jan 28 (Reuters) - Struggling department store operator J.C. Penney Co Inc said it lowered the threshold for triggering a takeover defense plan to protect about $2 billion in future tax benefits.
The company said it was lowering the trigger on its poison pill to 4.9 percent from 10 percent, as any change in stock ownership of 5 percent or more could "substantially limit" the company's ability to use its net operating loss carryforwards under the tax code.
