Arconic’s Extensive Efforts to Resolve Proxy Contest:

Three Things to Know

 

 

 

1      The Board has spent an extensive amount of time trying to reach a settlement with Elliott in good faith and have demonstrated our willingness to compromise. We reached agreement on proposed terms twice. Both times, Elliott reneged, repeatedly demanding an ever-expanding Iitany of settlement terms.
2      Elliott’s behavior—demanding an Operations Committee with two of three members designated by Elliott, and designating three of five members of the CEO Search Committee—confirms Elliott is looking for a degree of control and micro-management over Arconic, and critical Board functions and process, far in excess of what we believe is appropriate for a shareholder with a 13.2% stake in our common stock.
3      Arconic will amend its proxy materials and the WHITE proxy card to reflect its revised slate of director nominees at a later date. Shareholders who previously voted on a WHITE proxy card and do not submit a new card will have their prior votes cast for the Board’s nominees other than Mr. Kleinfeld, whose nomination has been withdrawn, subject to any prior instructions the shareholder provided. Arconic postponed its 2017 Annual Meeting of Shareholders from May 16, 2017 to a date toward the end of May 2017, to be announced.
