07:43 EDTMGMGlass Lewis recommends MGM investors endorse Land & Buildings nominee
Land and Buildings Investment Management announced that Glass, Lewis & Co., an independent proxy voting advisory firm, has recommended that shareholders of MGM Resorts International vote on the GOLD proxy card to elect nominee Matthew Hart, saying: “In light of the company's prevalent shareholder return underperformance and undervaluation relative to peers, as well as lingering concerns with respect to capital allocation, financial discipline, accountability and overall boardroom culture, we believe the Dissident has established a case for change at the board level... In our view, L&B has presented a compelling opportunity for MGM to unlock substantial value through a potential REIT conversion and additional measures which would further de-lever the balance sheet." Jonathan Litt, Founder and CIO of Land and Buildings, said, “The fact that Glass Lewis is endorsing one of our nominees sends a clear message that change is needed in the MGM boardroom in order to deliver value for all shareholders. We are extremely gratified that Glass Lewis has agreed with so many of the points we have brought to light throughout this campaign, and encourage shareholders to follow the Glass Lewis recommendation and vote on the Gold proxy card.”

05:05 EDTPNMPNM Resources signs executed letter agreement with Westmoreland Coal
PNM Resources' New Mexico utility, Public Service Co. of New Mexico, signed an executed letter agreement with Westmoreland Coal for the new coal supply contract for San Juan Generating Station, or SJGS, previously announced on May 1. The combined new coal supply and SJGS ownership restructuring agreements will save customers approximately $300M in fuel costs over the next six years. The company filed the agreement and other documents in response to a New Mexico Public Regulation Commission, or NMPRC, order that requested comments on how the Commission should proceed in light of these agreements. PNM feels strongly the NMPRC has reason to approve the company’s request to add 132 megawatts of capacity in SJGS Unit 4, conditional upon final execution of the ownership and coal contracts by August 31. The filing included a resolution from the owners of the SJGS in support of PNM’s plans and a letter from Keith Alessi, Westmoreland CEO, urging the NMPRC to make a timely decision that enables Westmoreland to move forward with the transition of the mine. In the coming weeks, the NMPRC’s General Counsel will present a draft order for consideration by commissioners for a final vote on PNM’s SJGS Plan settlement agreement.
