Glass Lewis stated : “As to the claim that [Cruiser] nominees Basset and Gottschalk effectively do not want to serve, we believe the board’s stance barely rises to the level of distraction. Both Messrs. Basset and Gottschalk have formally agreed to serve as directors, have actively participated in the current campaign and related engagements and have reportedly invested a considerable amount of personal capital in AVD’s shares. We see no credible cause for investors to share the board’s perspective in this respect” External link

On the governance front, the Company has recently completed a near-complete refresh of the board, with all but one remaining legacy non-executive director transitioning off the board at this annual meeting. Starboard's added pressure may have inspired the board to follow through with the board overhaul this year, but we have a generally favorable view of the six new directors the Company has added since 2019 and we believe the current composition of the board aligns well with Huntsman's business portfolio, strategy and positive trajectory.

Glass Lewis noted : “We note this high-water mark also materially exceeds Shaw’s stand-alone average trailing EBITDA multiple during each of the one-year periods ended March 12, 2019, 2020 and 2021 (i.e. 9.6x, 8.9x and 8.0x, respectively), suggesting investors have little historical cause to anticipate the Company would independently achieve a similar valuation on a durable basis in the near- to medium-term. That conclusion is bolstered by reference to the following: (i) the unaffected closing price of Shaw’s more widely floated Class B shares never topped C$31.67 per share across the Company’s nearly 40-year trading period prior to the announcement; and (ii) based on industry analyst reports available at the time of announcement, Shaw’s Class B shares had a consensus median price target of just C$27.00, moderately above the Company’s pre-announcement price (i.e. $23.90 per share) and well below the C$40.50 per share offer. In short, whether viewed in context with other industry deals or Shaw’s anticipated stand-alone trajectory, the all-cash arrangement available to unaffiliated investors appears to reflect a rather compelling exit value” External link

Glass Lewis noted : “We note this high-water mark also materially exceeds Shaw’s stand-alone average trailing EBITDA multiple during each of the one-year periods ended March 12, 2019, 2020 and 2021 (i.e. 9.6x, 8.9x and 8.0x, respectively), suggesting investors have little historical cause to anticipate the Company would independently achieve a similar valuation on a durable basis in the near- to medium-term. That conclusion is bolstered by reference to the following: (i) the unaffected closing price of Shaw’s more widely floated Class B shares never topped C$31.67 per share across the Company’s nearly 40-year trading period prior to the announcement; and (ii) based on industry analyst reports available at the time of announcement, Shaw’s Class B shares had a consensus median price target of just C$27.00, moderately above the Company’s pre-announcement price (i.e. $23.90 per share) and well below the C$40.50 per share offer. In short, whether viewed in context with other industry deals or Shaw’s anticipated stand-alone trajectory, the all-cash arrangement available to unaffiliated investors appears to reflect a rather compelling exit value” External link
