180 Degree Capital Corp. (NASDAQ: TURN) (“180 Degree Capital”) today noted the announcement by comScore, Inc. (“SCOR”) that SCOR’s Nominating Committee and Board of Directors will support the addition of 180 Degree Capital’s nominee, Matthew F. McLaughlin to SCOR’s Board of Directors at its upcoming 2024 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”).

“We commend SCOR’s Board for reaching this conclusion and avoiding the need for a competitive proxy contest,” said Kevin M. Rendino, Chief Executive Officer of 180 Degree Capital. “We nominated Matt because we believe his successful tenure as Chief Operating Officer of DoubleVerify Holdings, Inc. (“DV”) and deep experience in the digital advertising market will bring a much-needed skill set to SCOR’s Board along with improved corporate governance as a strong voice for SCOR’s common stockholders. We believe SCOR’s upcoming Annual Meeting will mark an important step forward toward value creation for SCOR’s long-suffering common stockholders with the addition of Jon Carpenter and Matt to SCOR’s Board. We hope that SCOR’s Board can now focus and reach resolution on outstanding impediments to value creation including SCOR’s capital structure, the company’s data license contract with its preferred stockholder, Charter Communications, and supporting management’s efforts to run SCOR’s business in a more efficient, profitable manner than it has in its history.”

“It is clear the addition of Matt to SCOR’s Board is only a first step on the path toward value creation for all of SCOR’s stakeholders,” added Daniel B. Wolfe, President of 180 Degree Capital. “We look forward to the details of how Matt’s addition will be implemented, be it through expanding number of members of the Board or through a current member not standing for re-election. We also hope the Board will support declassifying itself and put our proposal for doing so up for ratification by stockholders at the upcoming Annual Meeting. As we have stated from the beginning of our public communications on SCOR, we believe the company has unique data assets and offerings that have been significantly undervalued by the public markets because of the inability of SCOR’s Board to make decisions for the benefit of its common stockholders. The addition of Matt and Jon to SCOR’s Board shows that such decisions are possible. Now it is time to make progress on the other impediments to value creation, and we stand as common stockholders that will continue to fight for such progress.”
