Netflix Poison Pill Takeover Defense Ends Today, 2 Years Early

Netflix Inc., the top-performing stock in the Standard & Poor’s 500 index this year, said its poison pill anti-takeover defense expires today, almost two years ahead of schedule.

Investors aren’t required to take any action as a result of the change, the Los Gatos, California-based video-streaming service said today in a statement. The poison pill, designed to make an unfriendly takeover more expensive, was adopted in November 2012 and set to expire three years later.
