Preliminary Proxy Deficiency
Ladies and Gentlemen:
The attached text from the March 8, 2013 preliminary proxy (emphasis added) shows that the board of directors is essentially introducing advisory proposals under proposals 4 and 5.
These proposals require 80% and 70% respectively of the voting power of the company. The company has made no disclosure that its commitment to these proposals is great enough to do a special solicitation. And the company cannot even get a 70%-vote for executive pay (exhibit attached). The handwriting is on the wall.
This is to request that the Staff require the company to refrain from publishing its fraudulent advisory proposals.
