08:09 EDTATAtlantic Power says offered to share information on sale process with Clinton
On October 16, Clinton Group delivered a letter to the board urging the Company to reinstate the strategic review process based upon Clinton Group's belief that the strategic review process yielded offers for the Company at or above $4.00 per share and a transaction may still be consummated at a price above $4.00 per share. Clinton Group's speculation about the Company's sale or merger process is not consistent with the actual results of that process. The Company is committed to having an open and constructive dialogue with its security holders, and regularly communicates with significant stakeholders either proactively or in response to enquiries. Consistent with that approach, on October 17, the Company spoke with representatives of Clinton Group. The Company offered to share certain information from the sale process, provided that Clinton Group agreed to be bound by confidentiality obligations with respect to such information. Clinton Group declined the Company's request to be bound by confidentiality obligations.In light of the letter and enquiries from investors, the Company wishes to provide the following additional detail to all shareholders concerning the process. The Company did not receive any offers that the Company's Board of Directors believed could be consummated at or above the closing share price of $3.04 on May 1, 2014, being the day prior to press rumors concerning a possible sale or merger of the Company. As such, the Company's Board of Directors reaffirms that, at the present time, the interests of the Company and its stakeholders are best served by continuing to operate as an independent company and executing the Company's business plan, including the objectives of enhancing the value of its existing assets through optimization investments and commercial activities, delevering its balance sheet to improve both its cost of capital and ability to compete for new investments, and utilizing the Company's core competencies to create proprietary investment opportunities. In addition, the Company will continue to assess other potential options, including asset sales or the contribution of assets to a joint venture in order to raise additional capital for growth and/or debt reduction.
