08:07 EDTCLFCliffs Natural urges vote in favor of seven Cliffs nominees
Cliffs Natural Resources issued an open letter to shareholders in connection with its upcoming 2014 Annual Meeting of Shareholders, stating in part: "Cliffs' July 29 Annual Meeting of Shareholders is right around the corner and you have an important and strategic choice to make regarding the composition of the Cliffs Board and the future direction of your company. Last week, Cliffs announced that we reduced our slate from nine to seven candidates in order to provide shareholders with a clear path to vote consistently with the recommendations of Institutional Shareholder Services and Glass Lewis & Co without inadvertently providing Casablanca Capital with a majority of the Board of Directors as a result of Cliffs' cumulative voting provision... Surrendering a majority of the Board will enable Casablanca to enact what we believe is a value-destructive plan, including a "fire sale" of Cliffs' assets at the bottom of the commodity cycle."

08:15 EDTCLFCliffs Natural announces revised proxy with ISS, Glass Lewis recommendations
Cliffs Natural announced that it has revised its WHITE proxy card to provide shareholders with a clear path to vote consistently with the recommendations of Institutional Shareholder Services, or ISS, and Glass Lewis without inadvertently providing Casablanca Capital with a majority of the board as a result of Cliffs' cumulative voting provision. While both proxy solicitation firms have recommended shareholders support four Casablanca nominees, they have recommended that Cliffs' nominees should remain as the majority of Cliffs' board. As such, Cliffs' board has reduced its slate of directors to be elected at the 2014 Annual Meeting from nine to seven candidates, with Barry J. Eldridge and Stephen M. Johnson no longer standing for re-election. With this change, shareholders can vote the company's WHITE proxy card in order to elect four of Casablanca's nominees and seven of Cliffs' nominees, which is in line with both ISS' and Glass Lewis' recommendations. In addition, Cliffs' board is offering to include Lourenco Goncalves, Joseph Rutkowski, Gabriel Stoliar, and Douglas Taylor on Cliffs' WHITE proxy card, subject to such individuals providing Cliffs with their consent to include their names on Cliffs' proxy card.

07:17 EDTAPOLApollo Education Title IV review not cause for concern, says William Blair
William Blair says Apollo Education's announcement that the Department of Education will conduct a Title IV program review is not a major cause for concern. The firm notes that all U.S. colleges whose students access federal student loans are subject to periodic program reviews of their administration of Title IV funds. William Blair views Apollo's financial aid processing systems and procedures are among the best, if not the best, and keeps an Market Perform rating on the stock.
06:50 EDTAPOLApollo Education Title IV review likely non-event, says Piper Jaffray
After Apollo Education disclosed that the Department of Education will conduct a Title IV program review, Piper Jaffray says such actions are "normal course of business" and not unusual at for-profit institutions. Piper notes that Apollo's last Title IV program review was completed in 2012 with no adverse findings. The firm sees a "high probability" the review will be a non-event and it keeps a Neutral rating on the stock.
