CUSIP No. 36164Y101

The following constitutes Amendment No. 4 to the Schedule 13D filed by the undersigned (“Amendment No. 4”). This Amendment No. 4 amends the Schedule 13D as specifically set forth herein.

Item 2.Identity and Background.

 

Item 2 is hereby amended to add the following:

 

In connection with the withdrawal of Gavin T. Molinelli as a nominee for election to the Issuer’s Board of Directors at the Issuer’s 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”), Mr. Molinelli will no longer be a member of the Section 13(d) group and shall cease to be a Reporting Person immediately after the filing of this Amendment No. 4. The remaining Reporting Persons will continue filing as a group statements on Schedule 13D with respect to their beneficial ownership of securities of the Issuer to the extent required by applicable law. Each of the remaining Reporting Persons is party to the Amended and Restated Joint Filing and Solicitation Agreement, as further described in Item 6 below.

 

Item 4.Purpose of Transaction.

Item 4 is hereby amended to add the following:

On April 2, 2020, Starboard Value LP (together with its affiliates, “Starboard”) filed a definitive proxy statement and accompanying WHITE proxy card with the Securities and Exchange Commission to be used to solicit votes for the election of its slate of highly qualified director candidates at the Annual Meeting.

 

Also on April 2, 2020, Starboard delivered the following letter to the stockholders of the Issuer:

A LETTER TO THE STOCKHOLDERS OF GCP Applied Technologies Inc.

 

 

April 2, 2020

 

 

Dear Fellow Stockholders,

 

We are writing to you today about your investment in GCP Applied Technologies Inc. (“GCP” or the “Company”). Starboard Value LP (together with its affiliates, “Starboard”) currently has a beneficial ownership interest of approximately 9% of the outstanding shares of GCP, making us one of the Company’s largest stockholders. Our interests are directly aligned with yours.

 

We, like you, believe that GCP is a great company with a bright future. We believe that GCP has a truly unique and differentiated portfolio of products and solutions that provide real value in the construction marketplace. However, stockholders have suffered under the leadership of the current Board of Directors (the “Board”). After years of poor oversight and governance by the current Board, GCP has significantly underperformed since the Company’s debut as a public company four years ago. In fact, since its public debut, GCP has repeatedly missed its own financial expectations and shares have gained only 17% of their value as compared to the Company defined peer group, which on average has appreciated by 76%, a difference of over 58%.1

 


1 Reflects dividend adjusted share price returns for each of GCP and its Proxy Peers from 02/04/16 through 02/25/20, which are the dates referenced in Starboard’s definitive proxy statement. Proxy Peers from GCP’s 2019 proxy statement are WMS, AWI, CSL, CBPX, EXP, FOE, ROCK, FUL, IIIN, MLM, MTX, KWR, RPM, SSD, SUM, USCR, VMC, and GRA. Proxy Peer return includes all such Proxy Peers except CPBX, which was sold and delisted on February 3, 2020.

23

CUSIP No. 36164Y101

 

We believe it is time for a fresh start for GCP and its stockholders. Starboard has a long and proven track record of driving needed changes in public companies. We focus our efforts on driving long-term sustainable improvements to significantly improve performance and value creation. We stand for accountability, transparency, and disciplined operational, financial, and strategic focus. We are committed to following through on our promises to you, the owners of the Company.

 

We have assembled a best in class group of highly successful individuals, who we believe would bring the right mix of skills to provide the proper oversight of GCP and help navigate a successful turnaround at the Company. The slate of nominees we have proposed include individuals with decades of experience in the construction products and broader industrial industries, as well as highly successful experience in operations, finance, strategy, and governance. These individuals have a shared goal of changing the trajectory of performance at GCP and driving superior stockholder returns.

 

We recognize the COVID-19 crisis has created a difficult environment for many companies and their respective employees, customers, and partners. GCP is no different and needs strong leadership and oversight during these challenging times. We believe the nominees we have put forth are uniquely capable to help govern the Company through and after this crisis and position it for future success. 

 

In the enclosed definitive proxy materials, you will find detailed biographies of our nominees as well as pertinent information regarding the events leading up to the 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”). Over the coming weeks, we will share additional information, including further details of our plans for GCP and why we believe stockholders should support the election of our highly qualified slate of nominees at the Annual Meeting.

 

We are ready, willing and able to finally drive much needed change at GCP. Our interests are directly aligned with yours, and we ask for your support in bringing much needed change to the GCP Board so that, together, we can finally realize the true value of this Company.

 

We urge our fellow stockholders to sign, date, and return the enclosed WHITE proxy card TODAY.

 

Thank you for your consideration and support.

 

 

 

Best Regards, 

/s/ Peter A. Feld

WHEREAS, certain of the undersigned are stockholders, direct or beneficial, of GCP Applied Technologies Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”);

 

WHEREAS, Starboard Value and Opportunity Master Fund Ltd, a Cayman Islands exempted company (“Starboard V&O Fund”), Starboard Value and Opportunity S LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Starboard S LLC”), Starboard Value and Opportunity C LP, a Delaware limited partnership (“Starboard C LP”), Starboard Value R LP, a Delaware limited partnership, Starboard Value and Opportunity Master Fund L LP, a Cayman Islands exempted limited partnership (“Starboard L Master”), Starboard Value L LP, a Delaware limited partnership, Starboard Value R GP LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, Starboard Value LP, a Delaware limited partnership, Starboard Value GP LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, Starboard Principal Co LP, a Delaware limited partnership, Starboard Principal Co GP LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, Jeffrey C.

NOW, IT IS AGREED, this 2nd day of April 2020 by the parties hereto:

 

1.       In accordance with Rule 13d-1(k)(1)(iii) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), each of the undersigned (collectively, the “Group”) agrees to the joint filing on behalf of each of them of statements on Schedule 13D, and any amendments thereto, with respect to the securities of the Company. Each member of the Group shall be responsible for the accuracy and completeness of his/her/its own disclosure therein, and is not responsible for the accuracy and completeness of the information concerning the other members, unless such member knows or has reason to know that such information is inaccurate.

 

2.       So long as this agreement is in effect, each of Messrs. Brown, Ross and Yanker and Mses. Giesselman and Welty shall provide written notice to Olshan Frome Wolosky LLP (“Olshan”) of (i) any of their purchases or sales of securities of the Company; or (ii) any securities of the Company over which they acquire or dispose of beneficial ownership. Notice shall be given no later than 24 hours after each such transaction.

 

3.       So long as this agreement is in effect, each of Messrs. Brown, Ross and Yanker and Mses. Giesselman and Welty agrees to provide Starboard advance written notice prior to effecting any purchase, sale, acquisition or disposal of any securities of the Company which he or she has, or would have, direct or indirect beneficial ownership so that Starboard has an opportunity to review the potential implications of any such transaction in the securities of the Company and pre-clear any such potential transaction in the securities of the Company by each of Messrs. Brown, Ross and Yanker and Mses. Giesselman and Welty. Each of each of Messrs. Brown, Ross and Yanker and Mses. Giesselman and Welty agrees that he or she shall not undertake or effect any purchase, sale, acquisition or disposal of any securities of the Company without the prior written consent of Starboard.

 

4.       Each of the undersigned agrees to form the Group for the purpose of (i) soliciting proxies or written consents for the election of the persons nominated by the Group to the Board at the Annual Meeting, (ii) taking such other actions as the parties deem advisable, and (iii) taking all other action necessary or advisable to achieve the foregoing; provided, however, that Starboard acknowledges that Mr. Kiefaber and Ms. Ogilvie, as current directors of the Company, have fiduciary obligations to the Company.

 

 

5.       Starboard V&O Fund, Starboard S LLC, Starboard C LP and Starboard L Master shall have the right to pre-approve all expenses incurred in connection with the Group’s activities and agree to pay directly all such pre-approved expenses on a pro rata basis between Starboard V&O Fund, Starboard S LLC, Starboard C LP and Starboard L Master based on the number of Shares in the aggregate beneficially owned by each of Starboard V&O Fund, Starboard S LLC, Starboard C LP and Starboard L Master on the date hereof.

 

6.       Each of the undersigned agrees that any SEC filing, press release or stockholders communication proposed to be made or issued by the Group or any member of the Group in connection with the Group’s activities set forth in Section 4 shall be first approved by Starboard, or its representatives, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld.

 

7.       The relationship of the parties hereto shall be limited to carrying on the business of the Group in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. Such relationship shall be construed and deemed to be for the sole and limited purpose of carrying on such business as described herein. Nothing herein shall be construed to authorize any party to act as an agent for any other party, or to create a joint venture or partnership, or to constitute an indemnification. Nothing herein shall restrict any party’s right to purchase or sell securities of the Company, as he/she/it deems appropriate, in his/her/its sole discretion, provided that all such sales are made in compliance with all applicable securities laws.

 

8.       This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original and all of which, taken together, shall constitute but one and the same instrument, which may be sufficiently evidenced by one counterpart.

 

9.       In the event of any dispute arising out of the provisions of this Agreement or their investment in the Company, the parties hereto consent and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Federal and State Courts in the State of New York.

 

10.       Any party hereto may terminate his/her/its obligations under this Agreement on 24 hours’ written notice to all other parties, with a copy by fax to Steve Wolosky at Olshan, Fax No. (212) 451-2222.

 

11.       Each party acknowledges that Olshan shall act as counsel for both the Group and Starboard and its affiliates relating to their investment in the Company.

 

12.       Each of the undersigned parties hereby agrees that this Agreement shall be filed as an exhibit to a Schedule 13D pursuant to Rule 13d-1(k)(1)(iii) under the Exchange Act.
