DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Consolidated-Tomoka Land Co. (NYSE MKT: CTO) (or the “Company”) today announced that Wintergreen Advisors, LLC (“Wintergreen”), has submitted a proposal to be voted upon by the Company’s shareholders at the 2016 annual meeting. The proposal, if approved by CTO’s shareholders, would request that the CTO board of directors hire an independent advisor to evaluate a sale of CTO or the orderly liquidation of its assets. While expressing no views on the subject matter of the proposal at this time, CTO intends to comply with Wintergreen’s request by including the proposal in CTO’s proxy statement for the 2016 annual shareholder meeting.
We welcome the input and perspective of all of our shareholders as we continue to execute our business plan and to pursue our objective of maximizing shareholder value. We appreciate Wintergreen’s continued support through their ownership of a large stake in CTO, and the strong statements of support regarding CTO’s board of directors and management team in Wintergreen’s March 2015 annual Message to Shareholders. We are pleased that the market has recognized the progress we have made in pursuing our strategy, as evidenced by the 90% increase in CTO’s share price over the last four years. We believe that maintaining this strategy will continue to produce positive results.
