As a result, the Board of Directors has determined to commence a process to explore, review and evaluate a range of potential strategic alternatives available to the Company, including the unsolicited acquisition proposal, and intends to retain a financial advisor shortly to assist in this process.
“Our Board of Directors is committed to enhancing value for all of our stakeholders, and this review is an important and timely next step in the growth and evolution of the Company,” said Darrell J. Mays, Chairman of the Board of Directors. Xavier Williams, Chief Executive Officer of the Company, added, “While we conduct this review, we will remain focused on executing our business plan and continuing to deliver value for our customers.”
The Company’s Board of Directors has not set a timetable for this process nor has it made any decisions related to strategic alternatives, including the unsolicited proposal, at this time. No assurance can be given that the Company’s exploration of strategic alternatives, including the unsolicited proposal, will result in any change in strategy, any discussions regarding a transaction or a transaction being entered into or consummated, or if a transaction is undertaken, as to its terms, structure or timing. The Company does not expect to make further public comment regarding these matters unless and until the Board has approved a specific transaction or alternative or otherwise concludes its review of strategic alternatives.
