Mr. Mulacek also urges institutional shareholders not to rely on the advice of proxy advisory firms such as Institutional Shareholder Services (ISS) in determining how to vote on the revised Exxon proposal, since they got it wrong before. He points out that ISS recommended support of the first Exxon proposal, but when Mr. Mulacek challenged that proposal in the Canadian courts as not being fair, the Court of Appeal for Yukon agreed and, in a "stinging rebuke" of InterOil's board, management and corporate governance process, the high court failed to approve the deal. In view of this record, Mr. Mulacek questions why portfolio managers would rely on ISS and urges them to do their own independent analysis.
Mr. Mulacek also repeats his concern about the lack of input by InterOil shareholders in the certification process that underlies the CRP, which will be managed by Exxon and TOTAL. "InterOil shareholders have no effective advocate for their position in the current XOM Proposal. InterOil shareholders must have the opportunity to interact directly with the certifiers to protect their interests," he said.
