09:23 EDTCHTR, TWXTime Warner: Charter nominating directors to prsesure board into accepting offer
Time Warner Cable (TWC) issued the following statement in response to receipt of notice that Charter Communications (CHTR) is seeking control of the Time Warner Cable Board by nominating 13 directors for election at the 2014 Annual Meeting of Stockholders. Charter previously made a proposal to acquire Time Warner Cable for $82.54 in cash and 0.372 CHTR share per TWC share, which was unanimously rejected as grossly inadequate by Time Warner Cable’s Board of Directors. Rob Marcus, Time Warner Cable’s Chairman and CEO, said: “It is clear that Charter is nominating a slate of directors for the sole purpose of pressuring our Board into accepting the same lowball offer that it previously considered and unanimously rejected. Our Board remains focused on maximizing shareholder value. We are confident in our strategic plan, which was detailed publicly on January 30, and we are not going to let Charter steal the company.”
