Checkpoint Systems, Inc. Enters into Settlement with American Home Assurance Company and National Union Fire Insurance Company

On June 26, 2015, Checkpoint Systems Inc., together with its subsidiaries and affiliates, entered into a settlement with American Home Assurance Company and National Union Fire Insurance Company of Pittsburgh, Pa. (AIG) relating to the previously disclosed litigation filed by AIG on July 9, 2014. Pursuant to the Settlement, the Company paid approximately $9.0 million to AIG in exchange for full and final resolution of this matter between the parties. Further pursuant to the Settlement, each party will be responsible for a portion of the legal fees, costs, and expenses at issue in the litigation.

Checkpoint Systems, Inc. Appoints New Chairman of the Board

Checkpoint Systems Inc. announced that the Board of Directors has elected Stephen N. David, as Chairman of the Board of Directors, effective June 3, 2015. Mr. David has been a director of Checkpoint since 2012 and succeeds William S. Antle, III who had served as Chairman since 2012 and will continue to serve on Checkpoint’s Board as a non-employee director. Mr. David has been a senior adviser with Boston Consulting Group since 2005, where he provides strategic planning services in sales, marketing and IT to a variety of clients in the consumer products, pharmaceutical and financial services industries. Over the course of Mr. David's career, he has had extensive business development and strategic planning experience in the consumer products industry and technology sector.

CKP Eyes Acquisitions

Checkpoint Systems Inc. (NYSE:CKP) is looking for acquisition opportunities. NS Advisors, LLC currently owns 0.843 million shares of Checkpoint. Shockingly NS Advisors learned on last evenings' earnings call that CKP is pursuing acquisition opportunities that could severely leverage the balance sheet (debt up to 3 times EBITDA according to the CEO). As NS Advisors pointed out in our April 7, 2015 letter, over the past 10 years the company has spent over $660 million of the shareholders money on acquisitions, R&D and cap-ex, yet the company's market-cap has declined by $255 million. Given the board's poor capital allocation record, it is paramount that no acquisitions be made until investors have adequate representation on the board.
