CALGARY, June 16, 2017 /CNW/ - (TSX: EGL): Eagle Energy Inc. ("Eagle") warns that the dissidents continue to mislead shareholders. It is disappointing that the dissidents feel it is necessary to use such tactics to garner support from Eagle shareholders. They distort information to draw attention away from their flawed plan to take over Eagle. This is not the type of leadership Eagle shareholders should accept.
Contrary to what the dissidents imply in their June 15 press release, Institutional Shareholder Services Inc. ("ISS") does not support the dissidents.
ISS agrees with Eagle – the dissidents' plan provides no new detailed long-term strategic initiatives.
In its report, ISS stated,
"Shareholders are advised to use the management [yellow] proxy card due to the risk that casting votes on the dissident card could result in dissidents' nominees receiving control of the board, which potential outcome does not appear to represent a favourable risk-benefit balance from the company's long-term perspective." (emphasis added)
Eagle's incumbent Board enjoys strong support from Eagle's shareholders, contrary to what the dissidents may want shareholders to believe. Eagle's current board is better suited to lead the company forward and merits your continued support.
