Historical Stock Chart
3 Months : From Nov 2019 to Feb 2020
NEW YORK, Dec. 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The Stilwell Group ("Stilwell"), the largest shareholder of Wheeler Real Estate Investment Trust, Inc. ("Wheeler" or the "Company")(NASDAQ:WHLR, WHLRP, WHLRD), today announced that based on preliminary voting results from Wheeler's Annual Meeting of Shareholders held today, Wheeler shareholders have elected all three of Stilwell's director nominees, Joseph D. Stilwell, Paula J. Poskon and Kerry G. Campbell, to Wheeler's Board of Directors. The results are expected to be certified in the coming days.
Stilwell also announced that it released the following remarks made by Joe Stilwell during today's Annual Meeting:
"When the results are certified in the coming days, the legacy directors will likely have lost by a margin of better than 8-1 – which they richly deserved given their dirty campaign and their incompetence in discharging their duties.
Now that the board is largely cleaned-up, we'll work to clean up management, straighten out the
organization, and rationalize the corporate capital structure. Based on my discussions with the major shareholders, we all want to see this company returned to health and continue as a viable REIT. We're willing to provide the time and support necessary to accomplish this goal.
My Group's nominees now no longer represent The Stilwell Group; they represent the common
shareholders of WHLR. We will work with the other newly elected directors and with Andy Jones to take all appropriate actions with the greatest possible dispatch.
The Stilwell Group
