Engaged Capital Calls On Volcano To Evaluate Strategic Alternatives
Sep 29 14
Engaged Capital, LLC sent an open letter to Board of Directors of Volcano Corporation (NasdaqGS:VOLC) to immediately appoint shareholder representatives, evaluate strategic alternatives and begin search for Chief Executive Officer. “Shareholders have suffered through a prolonged period of material underperformance due to management’s overly optimistic business plans and its inability to identify and react to changing market conditions. It is time for new leadership. We urge the Board to immediately commence a parallel process to evaluate strategic alternatives and conduct a search for Chief Executive Office candidates with a history of driving profitability and extracting value from medical device assets,” said Glenn W. Welling, Principal and Chief Investment Officer of Engaged Capital. He added: “We have offered on three separate occasions, both orally and in writing, highly-qualified candidates to serve as board members, only to have these private entreaties summarily rejected. Instead of seeking to work constructively with one of VOLC’s largest shareholders, the Board has irrationally positioned the Company for a costly and unnecessary proxy fight. If the Board fails to uphold its fiduciary responsibilities, shareholders will have no choice but to vote to replace Chairman Ron Matricaria, Chief Executive Officer Scott Huennekens and Lesley Howe as directors of the Company at the 2015 annual meeting.”
