Procera Networks activist calls for board to evaluate strategic alternatives Ronald Chez of Merriman Capital sent an open letter to the board of Procera Networks criticizing their lack of execution and failure to deliver on their strategy. Chez said, "I believe it is essential, and consistent with the board's fiduciary duties to Procera shareholders, that the board evaluate all strategic alternatives, including the retention of an investment bank to help guide the process. I have spoken to several shareholders and investment bankers. I intend to actively pursue further discussions with additional shareholders and interested parties. At the earliest possible convenience, I would also like to meet with the board, to discuss the immediate need to change direction." Shares of Procera are up 5.5% to $7.00 following the letter.
