NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MG Capital Management, Ltd. (together with Percy Rockdale LLC, the nominating stockholder, and its affiliates, “MG Capital” or “we”), a significant stockholder of HC2 Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:HCHC) (“HC2” or the “Company”), which collectively with the other participants in its solicitation beneficially owns more than 6% of the Company’s outstanding shares, today issued a new presentation in response to the latest chapter of HC2’s low-road misinformation campaign. We invite stockholders to download and view the full presentation here.
Michael Gorzynski, MG Capital’s founder and managing partner, commented:
“HC2 is at a critical point in its lifecycle as a public company following years of debt-fueled acquisitions, excessive corporate spending, and poor leadership under Mr. Falcone and the Board. The very individuals tasked with stewarding the Company allowed hundreds of millions of dollars in equity market value to erode, while simultaneously compensating themselves exceedingly well and amassing more than $400 million in holding company debt that matures in 2021. In recognition of HC2’s tailspin toward potential bankruptcy, we have taken the extraordinary step of running a consent solicitation to remove the Board and install a world-class group of directors that can bring a Fortune 100 mentality to a boardroom that must become the source of immediate, tangible results in the months to come.
Stockholders now face a clear choice: roll the dice on people that continuously put your capital at grave risk over the past six years or place your trust in a group of individuals with diverse expertise, demonstrated integrity, and strong pedigrees at some of the world’s top companies. Our nominees are quality people with decades of experience creating value for investors. They have spent months analyzing HC2 and coming up with a credible plan to avert financial ruin and deliver an estimated $9 per share in value over time.
While I recognize stockholders will be inundated with information in the coming weeks, the choice that needs to be made about HC2’s future should be solely informed by an assessment of the facts. That is why my fellow nominees and I are releasing a new presentation today. We are committed to continuing to invest our energy, resources, and time to ensure you have the factual information you need to protect your investment in HC2.”
As a reminder, stockholders can learn about how to consent on the GREEN card by visiting www.ABetterHC2.com. The website includes additional information regarding our six director nominees and the plan they intend to implement if they are elected to the Board of Directors.
We urge HC2 stockholders to consent to all three proposals on the GREEN consent card and return it in your postage-paid envelope provided. The consent deadline is May 7, 2020.
