16:03 EDTPLCEShareholders for Change at Children's Place respond to Children's Place
Shareholders for Change at The Children's Place, a group led by Macellum Advisors GP, and Barington Capital Group, who collectively beneficially own approximately 2.1% of the outstanding shares of Children's Place, has issued the following statement regarding certain false and misleading statements released by the company: We believe the company and its representatives are once again trying to mislead investors. The recent statement that we rejected a settlement from Children's Place is completely false, demonstrating once again in our opinion that the board is not acting in the best interests of Children's Place shareholders. Last night, representatives of Shareholders for Change at The Children's Place participated in good faith to negotiate a potential settlement with two Board members of the company. The two board members suggested that the company would be willing to add our nominee Robert L. Mettler to the board, as well as to begin a process to identify an additional, mutually agreeable independent director to appoint to the board. The board members then stated, however, that it might take up to a year to find such a mutually agreeable candidate and that they were unwilling to speak with our nominee Seth Johnson to determine whether he would be mutually agreeable. After further discussion, the parties agreed to continue the settlement discussions today. Without any further notice, and to our great surprise, the company issued a press release falsely stating that we had rejected their proposal. We believe this statement is a deliberate attempt to mislead shareholders to sway votes just days before the Annual Meeting. We believe such actions are egregious and are the hallmarks of a poorly governed Board desperately clinging to power. We stand by our commitment to continue our discussion with the company to reach a mutually agreeable settlement, but one that is in the best interests of all shareholders of the company, and which addresses the serious issues that we have raised throughout this contest.
