18:50 EDTGCIGabelli to vote against Journal Media merger, disagrees with ISS recommendation
In a regulatory filing detailing a 15.63% stake in Journal Media Group (JMG), Gabelli noted it has reviewed the report by proxy advisory firm ISS regarding Journal's proposed merger with Gannett (GCI), and intends to vote against the merger plan for those shares over which it has voting authority. Journal Media's "refusal to disclose its real estate asset valuations, beyond the $5.4M 'excess real estate value' for real estate not used in core operations, is what is truly misleading to shareholders," Gabelli claimed.

08:08 EDTGCIJournal Media Group says ISS recommends investors vote for merger with Gannett
Journal Media Group (JMG) announced that Institutional Shareholder Services has recommended that Journal Media Group shareholders vote "FOR" the proposed merger between Journal Media Group and Gannett (GCI). ISS stated in its February 8, 2016 report: "A vote FOR this transaction is warranted given the substantial premium, the strength of the sales process, the fact that no superior offers have emerged despite the reasonable breakup fee, and the apparently material downside risks..." The transaction and other matters will be considered at a special meeting for Journal Media Group shareholders on March 1, 2016, at 10 a.m. at Journal Media Group's headquarters at 333 W. State St., Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Journal Media Group shareholders of record as of the close of business on January 21, 2016, are entitled to vote at the special meeting either in person or by proxy. The parties currently expect to complete the proposed transaction promptly following approval by Journal Media Group shareholders and the expiration or termination of the Hart-Scott-Rodino waiting period.
