Sandell issues statement to Ethan Allen shareholders Sandell Asset Management Corp., a large shareholder of Ethan Allen Interiors, has issued the following statement to its fellow shareholders of Ethan Allen: "Sandell reminds Ethan Allen shareholders that they may need to take steps with their custodial banks and brokerage firms to ensure that they have the ability to vote their shares at the upcoming 2015 Annual Meeting. Ethan Allen shareholders should pay particular attention to any shares presently held in swap arrangements or in margin accounts. In order to ensure that Ethan Allen shareholders have the ability to vote their shares, they should consider beginning the process of promptly unwinding any swap accounts to allow sufficient time before the record date. Sandell also reminds Ethan Allen shareholders that any shares in margin accounts that may be loaned by a broker will need to be moved into a cash account in advance of the record date if shareholders want to vote their shares. Also, any prospective purchasers of Ethan Allen shares prior to October 5 are encouraged to pursue settlement of purchases on a 'T+1' basis if shareholders want to vote such shares. The Company's 2015 Annual Meeting is currently scheduled for November 24 and Sandell believes that October 5 is the record date for the Annual Meeting."
