News Release: PenderFund Capital Management Ltd Responds to Proposed Acquisition of The Leaf Group
VANCOUVER, B.C. PenderFund Capital Management Ltd. (“Pender”), is a shareholder of The Leaf Group (“Leaf” or the “Company”). Pender’s response to Leaf’s announcement that Graham Holdings is going to buy it for $8.50 per share, is that, while Pender generally supports a sale of Leaf, it believes that the offer of $8.50 materially undervalues the Company.
Pender strongly urges the Company’s Board to reassess its decision on Graham Holdings’ offer and to continue to work to achieve a price that better reflects Leaf’s full and fair value.
