On February 22, 2019, Magellan Health, Inc. issued the following press release:

 

Magellan Health to Consider Director Nominations

 

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — February 22, 2019 — Magellan Health, Inc. (NASDAQ: MGLN) today acknowledged that Starboard Value LP (“Starboard”) has provided notice of its intent to nominate six candidates to stand for election to the Board of Directors at the Company’s 2019 Annual Meeting of Shareholders. Starboard stated that it expects that five of the Company’s nine current Board members will be standing for election at the Annual Meeting, and if that remains the case, Starboard has indicated that it would withdraw one of its six director candidates.  The date of the 2019 Annual Meeting has not yet been announced. Magellan shareholders are not required to take any action at this time.

 

The Company issued the following statement:

 

We value the views of our shareholders, and following Starboard’s recent investment, members of Magellan Health’s Board and management team began a dialogue with Starboard to understand their perspectives. In these conversations, we have made clear our commitment to serving the best interests of the Company and our stakeholders.

 

We take the composition of our Board seriously. As we have evolved and diversified Magellan’s business to create a company with two platforms in healthcare and pharmacy management, we have added new directors with relevant skills and experience to support the changes in our strategic direction. Five new independent directors have been added to the Board in the past five years, representing more than half of the Board’s nine members. Two of these directors joined just last year and are among the directors up for election.

 

As expressed to Starboard, we continue to be open to new directors who bring experience that is additive to the business and to reaching an agreement that serves the best interests of all Magellan Health shareholders.

 

The Magellan Board and management team have been, and remain committed to, acting in the best interest of the Company and all Magellan shareholders, and the Board and its Nominating/Corporate Governance Committee will review and consider Starboard’s proposed director candidates.

 

The Company will present the Board’s recommendation with respect to the election of directors in the Company’s proxy statement, which will be filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and mailed to all shareholders eligible to vote at the 2019 Annual Meeting.

A Message from Barry Smith

 

As you may have seen, one of our shareholders, Starboard Value, recently issued a press release expressing its views regarding our Company and its intent to nominate candidates to be elected to Magellan Health’s Board of Directors. 
 

It is increasingly common for shareholders like Starboard to engage publicly with management teams and boards of directors, and it would be likely for Starboard to make further public remarks in the future.  We have maintained a dialogue with Starboard and welcome their views, as we do with all our shareholders. Accordingly, the Board will consider their director candidates, consistent with our usual processes. The Board and management team are focused on doing what is in the best interest of the Company and all of our stakeholders, including our employees, clients, members and shareholders.
 

I want to emphasize that it remains business as usual at Magellan Health despite the increased attention from the media and others that today’s news may create. With your help and dedication, Magellan Health is improving the lives of millions of individuals and empowering them to lead healthy, vibrant lives. Every day, people rely on Magellan Health to get the care they need, the appropriate medication on time, and support in their daily living.  Let’s stay focused on that and continue the great work you do.
