NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Elliott Management Corporation (“Elliott”), which manages funds that collectively beneficially own a 13.2% economic interest in Arconic Inc. (NYSE:ARNC) (“Arconic” or the “Company”), today released the following statement:
On Monday, April 17, Arconic explained that Klaus Kleinfeld’s mutually agreed-upon resignation was the consequence of a letter he had sent directly to a senior officer of Elliott Management. Having made it clear to the public that there had been such a letter and that it was sufficiently serious to cause Mr. Kleinfeld’s resignation, Arconic created a public frenzy for further information, and now various parties are disclosing portions of the letter. So Elliott believes it has no choice but to release Mr. Kleinfeld’s complete letter and our private responses first to the letter and then to Arconic’s public announcement of the letter on April 17.
