RYE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GAMCO Asset Management Inc. ("GAMCO"), an affiliate of GAMCO Investors, Inc. (NYSE:GBL), announced today that it has made available an investor presentation regarding GAMCO’s proxy contest with respect to the 2015 Annual Meeting of Shareholders of Myers Industries, Inc. (“Myers” or the “Company”) (NYSE:MYE). The 2015 Annual Meeting is scheduled for April 24, 2015 in Akron, OH.
The presentation depicts a “motion picture” of over a decade of inaction and poor oversight by Myers’ Board of Directors with respect to the mergers and acquisitions made by the Company and explains how such failures by the Board have negatively impacted shareholder value.
The presentation also discusses why shareholders should vote the BLUE proxy card in favor of GAMCO’s highly qualified, experienced, independent nominees, who understand the drivers of shareholder value, have the experience to properly allocate capital and realize the importance of asking analytical questions of Myers’ management.
GAMCO Investors, Inc., through its subsidiaries, manages private advisory accounts (GAMCO Asset Management Inc.), mutual funds and closed-end funds (Gabelli Funds, LLC), and partnerships and offshore funds (Gabelli Securities, Inc.). As of December 31, 2014, GAMCO had $ 47.5 billion in assets under management.
