The plan will go into effect if Alden gains control of more than 10% of Lee’s shares within the next year. The Davenport, Iowa-based company said the plan would allow its other shareholders to buy shares at a 50% discount at the time, or could receive free stock for every share they buy. own.

Alden said last week that it owed more than 6% of Lee’s stock.
