CALGARY, June 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ - (TSX: EGL):  Eagle Energy Inc. announced that a second independent corporate governance and proxy advisory firm, Glass Lewis & Co. LLC, agrees with Eagle - the dissidents are NOT better suited to lead Eagle.  They only stand to create greater uncertainty for Eagle's shareholders.

In its recent report, Glass Lewis concluded,

"…direct support for Kingsway's platform stands to generate greater uncertainty for investors at this time, both

  • with respect to the reconstituted board's ability to effectively manage the consequences of Eagle's lending arrangements and

  • the Dissident's stated preference for quick asset sales in an unattractive market."

This is the simple and straightforward Glass Lewis conclusion.  The dissidents will of course ignore that conclusion.  Instead, they will selectively point to Glass Lewis quotes that they think favor them, continuing to mislead Eagle shareholders.

Glass Lewis and Institutional Shareholder Services Inc. (ISS) have now both confirmed what Eagle has said all along:


Eagle

Glass Lewis

The Dissidents' strategy will NOT create long term value.

  • Eagle will not obtain good value by a quick asset sale in the currently depressed market.

  • Eagle will lose any potential upside with its assets.

 




Eagle's loan can be called if there is a change in control.

  • The dissidents have proposed no alternative financing.

 

 

 

 

The dissidents may not share the same investment objectives or value maximizing perspectives of remaining shareholders. 

  • The dissidents themselves are on the buy side of energy assets at this time. Mr. Gundersen already tried to buy one of Eagle's assets at below value.

 

 

 

 

Do NOT vote for the dissident nominees using the dissidents' proxy. Vote ONLY the Yellow Proxy.

Eagle's incumbent Board enjoys strong support from Eagle's shareholders, contrary to what

the dissidents may want shareholders to believe.

Eagle's current board is better suited to lead Eagle forward and merits your continued support.
