Barington Capital Group, L.P. Key Developments

Private Equity and Strategic Buyers Interested In DHI

Ancora Advisors, LLC and Barington Capital Group, L.P. have sent a letter to Peter Ezersky, Chairman of DHI Group, Inc. (NYSE:DHX) stating that sale of the company is the best way to maximize value for shareholders, given the considerable gap between the company's current market price and its private market valuation as well as the operational challenges the company has had under its current management team. They note that they have had discussions with several potential private equity and strategic buyers of DHI who have expressed interest in acquiring the company at a premium to its current market price. Barington and Ancora therefore urge the Board in the letter to engage an investment banking firm to run a sale process for the company in order to unlock the intrinsic value of the company.

The Board of Children's Place Exploring Strategic Alternatives

Macellum Advisors, LP and Barington Capital Group, L.P. recommend that the Board of The Children's Place, Inc. (NasdaqGS:PLCE) should consider strategic alternatives as well as explore a sale of The Children's Place.

Barington Capital Urges OMNOVA To Undertake Startegic Review

Barington Capital Group, L.P. sent a letter to Kevin McMullen, the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of OMNOVA Solutions Inc. (NYSE:OMN), urging the company to undertake a broad strategic review. The letter stated: “The company has approximately $114 million in federal net operating loss carryforwards (NOLs) that could be used to offset the taxable gains related to the sale of U.S. based assets. We therefore recommend that the company retain a financial advisor to undertake a broad strategic review of OMNOVA's portfolio of businesses. We believe that such strategic review should include, among other things, a consideration of the divestiture of the company's Engineered Surfaces business as well as an assessment of potential accretive bolt-on acquisitions that would enhance the company's Performance Chemicals segment.”
