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.
