DOVER, Del., Oct. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, Citizens for a Pro-Business Delaware, an advocacy group focused on saving the jobs of 4,000 TransPerfect employees, announced it is submitting a white paper to the Delaware Bar Association's Section of Corporation Law and its Council regarding an amended statute to ensure that a successful, profitable company cannot be so easily split-up and sold.

We are confident we can, and will, find a solution in the weeks and months ahead," Coffey said.
In addition to the white paper, Citizens for a Pro-Business Delaware's multifaceted campaign includes newspaper ads in local papers, canvassing local neighborhoods, lobbying elected officials, running radio ads, posting billboards and more.
