06:35 EDTARIASarissa Capital seeks retirement of ARIAD CEO, board seats
Sarissa Capital disclosed in a regulatory filing that it has been in negotiations with members of ARIAD's board in an attempt to avoid a potential proxy contest. Sarissa said it indicated its belief that the board undertake measures to effect and facilitate the imminent retirement of Harvey Berger as CEO and that any settlement of a potential proxy contest must include the CEO’s retirement. It added that no settlement has been reached. Sarissa believes the board "as currently constructed is not up to the task of providing the stewardship necessary to optimally navigate" the company. On February 19, Sarissa notified ARIAD that it intends to appear at the company's 2015 annual meeting of stockholders to nominate and seek to elect Richard Mulligan, Ph.D. and Anna Protopapas to the eight member staggered board of directors. Sarissa intends to seek to unseat Harvey Berger, ARIAD's Chairman and CEO, and Wayne Wilson, the lead independent director, with its two nominees. Sarissa added that it is "extremely concerned" with the conduct of certain members of the board, "particularly with respect to compensation, governance and financial matters." The hedge fund said it may ultimately initiate court proceedings to seek to remove one or more directors for cause based on potential breaches of their fiduciary duties. Sarissa Capital has a 6.9% stake in ARIAD.
