DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Consolidated-Tomoka Land Co. (NYSE American:CTO) (the “Company” or “CTO”) announced that it had received from Wintergreen Advisers, LLC (“Wintergreen”) a shareholder proposal dated November 13, 2017, and a notice of intent to nominate three candidates for election to CTO’s board of directors (the “Board”) dated November 24, 2017 (collectively the “Wintergreen Materials”). Wintergreen has requested that the shareholder proposal and the director nominations be submitted for consideration by CTO’s shareholders at the Company’s 2018 Annual Meeting of Shareholders (the “2018 Annual Meeting). The shareholder proposal requests that the Board hire an independent adviser to maximize shareholder value by evaluating all options for the Company, including a sale or liquidation of CTO. The three director nominees identified by Wintergreen are David J. Winters, Elizabeth N. Cohernour, and Evan H. Ho. The Company will provide the full text of Wintergreen’s letters to the Company in a public filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Form 8-K. The Company provided the following statement:
“The Board will carefully consider and respond publicly to Wintergreen’s proposal and director nominations. Shareholders who review the Wintergreen Materials should be aware, however, that the Company disputes several statements made by Wintergreen, in its supporting statement included with the notice of intent to nominate the three director candidates, as being factually incorrect.”
