06:43 EDTMDASStarboard says plan would drive MedAssets share price to $37-$46 by end of 2016
Starboard Value on August 3, 2015 disclosed an 8.7% ownership stake in MedAssets making it one of the company's largest shareholders. Starboard also announced that it has delivered a letter to R. Halsey Wise, MedAsset's chairman and CEO, and the board of the company. Starboard looks forward to constructive dialogue with company management and the board regarding the company's business and opportunities to create significant shareholder value. The letter stated, "We understand that you are in the process of a comprehensive strategic review, and we would like you to take into consideration our views and the views of other shareholders as you continue to evaluate alternatives. Based on the extensive research that we have conducted, we believe that MedAssets is deeply undervalued relative to the quality of its assets, and the earnings power of its core business. We believe that there is an opportunity to unlock value by improving capital allocation, streamlining the company's cost structure, and improving corporate governance. In order to unlock this value, we believe that management should take appropriate action... We estimate that pursuing this plan of action could result in a stock price of $37-$46 by the end of 2016... We urge you to expeditiously evaluate your current cost structure and announce a comprehensive cost saving program and long-term margin targets. We expect that as you evaluate MedAssets' historical capital allocation and corporate governance practices, you will adopt policies that are significantly more shareholder-friendly. While you continue to work through the strategic review of MedAssets, we believe it is critical to consider all available strategic alternatives, including a sale of the company."
