08:50 EDTETHEthan Allen urges stockholders to vote for director nominees
Ethan Allen issued an open letter to stockholders in connection with its upcoming 2015 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, in which it stated in part: "As you may know, Sandell Asset Management ("Sandell"), a stockholder owning approximately 5.5% of Ethan Allen's outstanding shares, is attempting to take control of your Board by replacing six of seven directors. The Sandell slate of nominees lacks important and relevant experience in Ethan Allen's global, vertically integrated business and has no experience in areas critical to the execution of the Company's strategy, including e-commerce...While we are focused on the future, our recent fiscal first quarter 2016 results underscore the strength of our strategy that the Board and management team are implementing and the value it is creating...We urge you not to risk electing Sandell's nominees, who we believe are not additive to the diverse and highly relevant expertise of the Ethan Allen Board that has a demonstrated track record of execution and stockholder value creation...We reiterate that ISS, Glass Lewis and Egan-Jones have all rejected Sandell's attempt to take control of the Board."
