Starboard Value Asks Darden To Delay Plans For Spin Off Or Sale Of Red Lobster
Jan 21 14
Starboard Value LP has urged Darden Restaurants, Inc. (NYSE:DRI) to delay the spinoff of its Red Lobster, Inc. The calls for change from two investors holding almost 8% of Darden shares has put intense pressure on Clarence Otis, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Darden Restaurants. Jeffrey Smith, Managing Member of Starboard Value, wrote in a letter to Clarence, "The proposed Red Lobster separation is not just a sub-optimal outcome, but one that may prove to be value destructive - potentially even worse for shareholders than the status quo." In his letter to Darden on January 21, 2014, Smith called Darden's Red Lobster proposal, "a hurried, reactive attempt, in the face of shareholder pressure to do the bare minimum to appease shareholders." Smith called on Darden to consider other options to boost share value, including slashing operating costs, improving restaurant results and divesting real estate. A spokesman for Darden did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Starboard Urges Compuware To Evaluate Strategic Altenatives
Nov 14 13
Starboard Value LP is urging Compuware Corporation (NasdaqGS:CPWR) to maximize value through sale, restructuring plan. Starboard has delivered a letter to Compuware's President and CEO, Bob Paul, and Board of Directors. Starboard stated: "We appreciate you taking the time to speak with us last week, and also previously meeting with us at our offices in New York. We are encouraged by the commitment management has made to reduce operating expenses and return cash to shareholders...We are also encouraged by the public statements that you have made regarding Compuware’s ongoing efforts to explore strategic alternatives. However, as we stated on the call, we believe that this process has gone on for too long without any conclusion. It has been almost a year since Elliott Management offered to acquire the company for $11.00 per share. While the company has made some progress on its restructuring and value creation initiatives, investors are still left to wonder how Compuware’s long-term strategy will look. Additionally, we believe the length of time that the company has spent exploring strategic alternatives, without any conclusion to the process, has created a significant overhang on the stock price...It is time for Compuware to either sell itself now for an acceptable premium or execute and expand upon its previously announced standalone value creation plan."
