According to a newly-amended 13D filing with the US SEC, Charles-de-Vaulx International Value Advisers has signed a Support Agreement with Devry Education Group Inc. (NYSE:DV), upon which Michael W. Malafronte, the managing partner of the fund, was appointed to the company’s board as International Value Advisers’ designee. Mr. Malafronte shall be included in the company’s slate of nominees for election as directors at the 2016 annual meeting unless he resigns from the position earlier. If International Value Advisers, which currently holds 12.22 million shares that amass 19.5% of the total outstanding stock, lower their stake below 10%, or if the fund violates any part of the agreement and don’t fix it within 10 business days, Mr. Malafronte must resign from his position. In addition, during the standstill period, International Value Advisers shall not acquire that many voting securities to amass the ownership of more than 19.9% of the outstanding voting securities.
