IEC Electronics issues letter regarding misleading statements by Vintage IEC Electronics issued a letter from CEO and Chairman of the Board, W. Barry Gilbert to stockholders filed with the SEC. Highlights of the text begins: "Starting with our first letter to you in the Vintage proxy contest, we have pointed out omissions, falsehoods and misleading statements by Vintage designed to influence stockholder voting. Vintage has not refuted our statements about their distortions. Perhaps they have determined they are better off not trying to defend the indefensible and continue their program of misrepresenting the truth. Vintage's most recent statement about the proxy advisors is no exception. The facts are that the two leading proxy advisory firms did not support Vintage taking control of the IEC board; a third less well-recognized firm supported the Vintage slate."
