08:51 EDTDDTrian says 'appears Trian nominees not elected to DuPont board'
Trian Fund Management, L.P., one of the largest stockholders of E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company, which beneficially owns approximately 24.6 million DuPont shares, said it appears that the Trian nominees were not elected to the DuPont Board at todayís Annual Meeting of Stockholders. Trian issued the following statement: "Trianís involvement in DuPont over the past two years has created substantial value for all stockholders. We are proud of the quality of our analysis and the role we have played as a positive change agent at DuPont. Since we first invested in mid-2013, DuPont has upgraded its Board of Directors, authorized a $5 billion share buyback, begun a long-overdue cost cutting initiative, improved the design of its executive compensation program, and announced the separation of Chemours with a $4 billion return of capital. We donít believe these actions would have happened without our involvement. The vote was close. We greatly appreciate the support we received from the vast majority of institutional stockholders and mutual funds as well as the leading proxy advisory firms, who all recognize the need for change at DuPont. DuPontís Board and management team have staked their reputations on executing the Companyís current strategy. Our efforts have created appropriate pressure to prove this strategy can actually deliver high quality and consistent earnings growth. Regardless of the voting results, we believe that going forward, DuPont stockholders will be less tolerant of continued missed earnings guidance, extraordinary charges, value-destructive acquisitions and divestitures, executive compensation that is not aligned with performance, and operating metrics such as revenue growth and margins that fail to meet DuPontís own targets. We will continue to closely monitor DuPontís performance.Ē
