Consolidated Tomoka Land Co (CTO): Wintergreen Advisers To Vote Against All Directors and Other Proposals

In an open letter attached to a recent filing with the US Securities and Exchange Commission, David WintersWintergreen Advisers expressed its plans to vote against the re-election of all seven board directors of Consolidated-Tomoka Land Co. (NYSEMKT:CTO). The investor added that it also opposes their proposals, which include the ratification of the appointment of Grant Thornton as auditor and the advisory vote to approve executive compensation. On the other hand, the fund would support the hiring of an independent advisor that would be able to find solutions to maximize the company’s shareholder value. Wintergreen also plans to vote against the issuance of new shares of Consolidated-Tomoka Land Co. (NYSEMKT:CTO), saying that this move would dilute the stock.

“To help illustrate what this dilution means for a shareholder of CTO, if this proposal passes and the Company issues the full amount of the requested shares, a shareholder who owns $1,000 worth of stock would be diluted such that the value of the shares immediately after the additional stock is issued, would be $765,” the letter added.

The filing said that Wintergreen owns 1.54 million shares of Consolidated-Tomoka Land Co. (NYSEMKT:CTO), which represent 26.1% of the company’s outstanding stock.
