MINNEAPOLIS, April 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Blue Clay Capital Management, LLC (together with its affiliates and other participants in its solicitation, "Blue Clay"), beneficial owners of 1,053,435 shares of common stock of Select Comfort Corporation (NASDAQ: SCSS) ("Select Comfort" or the "Company"), today released a detailed presentation to fellow shareholders in connection with the election of Blue Clay's two highly-qualified nominees, Brian A. Spaly and Adam J. Wright, to the Company's board of directors at the upcoming 2015 Annual Meeting. Shareholders can access Blue Clay's presentation, which has been filed with the SEC, at the following link: https://okapivote.com/selectcomfort
The presentation chronicles Select Comfort's history of:
- Stock price underperformance during the tenure of CEO Shelly Ibach;
- Deterioration of the Company's financial results as a result of persistent execution failures and undisciplined spending;
- Repeated failures to meet stated performance objectives regarding operating margins, earnings per share and new store growth; and
- Capital allocation decisions made by the current Board that have destroyed value for shareholders.
The presentation also demonstrates the current Board's poor corporate governance practices, excessive tenure, interlocking relationships and cronyism, and misalignment with shareholders, and why Blue Clay believes the Board as currently constituted lacks the independence, commitment and forward-thinking that is needed to enhance long-term shareholder value. The presentation further highlights Blue Clay's views that its nominees are far better qualified to drive real change for the benefit of all shareholders and would bring the fresh perspectives and new insight that are desperately needed on the Board.
