Jerry Ivy Reports on ISS Recommendation Against Election of Nominee Directors
of On Track Innovations (OTIV)
NEW YORK, Oct. 31, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Institutional Shareholder Services
(ISS) announced on October 30^th that it now recommends a vote AGAINST the
three director nominees of On Track Innovations.
In the report, ISS noted: "A vote against these elections [of nominees Yossi
Peled, Meir Nissensohn and Ora Setter] is warranted given the company's
continued poor financial and stock performance over the past several years, as
well as concerns about compensation and corporate governance."
Jerry Ivy stated:"We are grateful for receiving ISS support. ISS'
recommendation validates our concerns with OTIV's Board's shortcomings and
continued failure to protect shareholder value. It is time for shareholders to
take an active role in protecting their investment and I hope that they will
help this cause by voting AGAINST election of the three management nominees.""
The ISS report concludes: "The current board has not shown the ability to turn
the company around, and shareholders are justified in their
disappointment.Given the compelling argument presented by the dissidents
[Jerry Ivy and his nominees] that boardroom change is needed, and the failure
of the board to present a convincing counter argument, a vote against the
proposed slate of directors is warranted."
In order to bring about change, Ivy urges SHAREHOLDERS TO VOTE "AGAINST" the
three director nominees. Ivy noted that he had submitted notice to OTI
requesting a shareholder meeting to consider the election of his slate of
directors.Voting "AGAINST" will permit shareholders to consider that slate at
a future date.
