Wynnefield Requests Omega To Exit Human Nutrition Business

Wynnefield Capital, Inc. called on Omega Protein Corporation (NYSE:OME) to exit the human nutrition business and redeploy proceeds into its profitable core business. Wynnefield, said the company's venture into the human nutrition business "has been a wasteful squandering of almost eight dollars a share of shareholder free cash flow and a textbook case of 'diworsification.'" Wynnefield added it is highly skeptical that the company's "seemingly endless review of strategic alternatives will reach this conclusion."
