16:10 EDTTIBXTIBCO holder Praesidium says substantial opportunity to 'unlock value'
Praesidium Investment Management on behalf of its clients, beneficially owns approximately 5.5M shares of TIBCO Software and today sent the following letter to TIBCO's Board of Directors. Praesidium has a long-term, multi-year investment horizon and frequently interacts with management teams and boards of directors to propose constructive strategic ideas. The letter said in part: "We believe that TIBCO has a unique collection of valuable assets and industry leading technology, with products in some of the fastest-growing areas of software, such as data discovery, analytics, and complex event processing. However, we also see a company that is currently falling far short of its significant potential, resulting in what we see as a material disconnect between the high strategic value of TIBCO's technology and the price of TIBCO's stock in the public market. We believe there is a substantial opportunity to unlock value at TIBCO and we look forward to a constructive dialogue with the Board on ways to achieve this. The Board should trust that as fiduciaries of our clients' capital we will do what is necessary to ensure that shareholder value is maximized at TIBCO. "

08:04 EDTTIBXTIBCO holder Praesidium urges company to conduct formal sale process
Praesidium Investment Management, which beneficially owns approximately 5.4M shares of TIBCO Software, announced last night that it sent a letter to TIBCO's Board of Directors, in which it stated in part: "We were happy to read in the Wall Street Journal that TIBCO Software has started to reach out to potential acquirers. We support the Company's exploration of a potential sale as a way to maximize shareholder value. However, the article states that the talks are not part of a formal process and are being spearheaded by TIBCO's CEO, Vivek Ranadive. We strongly believe that a rigorous, formal process is required in order for the Board to make a fully informed decision in good faith regarding whether a sale, a stand-alone strategy or another alternative is in the best interests of the Company's shareholders. In order to avoid conflicts of interest, we think that it is imperative that the Board form a special committee of independent directors and that the special committee engage with an investment bank and legal advisors...We believe the Board has an opportunity to create a significant amount of value for shareholders through a formal and well run sales process. Praesidium, as a large, long-term TIBCO shareholder, would be more than willing to assist the special committee in pursuit of maximizing value for TIBCO shareholders. We intend to provide the Board our analysis and views on who we see as the potential strategic acquirers and how TIBCO's products would fit with each."
