DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Texas Pacific Land Corporation (NYSE: TPL) (“TPL Corporation” or the “Company”) today sent a letter to stockholders from the Board of Directors (the “Board”) discussing the proposals on the ballot for the Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”) on December 29, 2021.
In the letter, the Board urges stockholders to vote TODAY ‘FOR’ Proposal One, the election of three well-qualified directors – Barbara Duganier, Tyler Glover and Dana McGinnis – each of whom contributes to the Board a unique perspective and diverse, relevant experience. The Board also recommends that stockholders vote ‘FOR’ Proposals Two, Four, Five and Six, ‘FOR’ one year in Proposal Three, and ‘AGAINST’ Proposal Seven regarding the classified structure of the Company’s Board.
Highlights from the letter include:
- A snapshot of relevant experience and qualifications of the three directors up for election;
- Important context regarding the Company’s classified board structure and the Board’s Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee plans to begin the process of evaluating the declassification of the Board in 2022; and
- An overview of the Company’s concerns regarding Gabi Gliksberg, the stockholder behind Proposal Seven, who seems intent on a path of litigation and disruption that cannot possibly benefit the Company, its business or stockholders.
Please review the attached letter to stockholders, which will also be filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and mailed to stockholders ahead of the Annual Meeting. Stockholders who have questions or who need assistance in voting their shares should contact the Company’s proxy solicitor, MacKenzie Partners, at (212) 929-5500 or Toll-Free (800) 322-2885.
