HOUSTON, April 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Mustang Capital believes that the Furmanite (NYSE: FRM) Board's outrageous last-minute postponement of last week's stockholder meeting, and Chairman Ahn's abrupt retirement, clearly indicate that a complete change in Board composition is long overdue.
John Linnartz, Managing Member of Mustang Capital, stated, "With Bill Ahn's very much welcomed retirement last Friday, we believe it is now critical for stockholders to elect a totally new Board with industry knowledge and a fresh perspective on Furmanite's potential." Mr. Linnartz added, "The Mustang slate is eager to work with the management team to achieve the deserved success of Furmanite and we believe employees, customers and stockholders all will benefit from the positive change."
Mustang nominees Jeff Davis, David Fanta, Peter Haeg and John Linnartz, together, possess the effective balance of strong industry expertise, operational skills and stockholder perspective that will provide enhanced opportunities for all Furmanite team members, drive customer satisfaction and improve stockholder returns.
Mustang's nominees believe that established industrial service companies like Furmanite should have significant opportunities in the current robust industrial manufacturing market. Mr. Linnartz said, "We care deeply about this Company and our own personal reputations, so stockholders can rest assured that we will be relentless in our pursuit of the kind of success that the entire Furmanite family can be proud of."
