Alan Carr, Co-Chairman of the Board of Directors of Verso (the "Board"), stated, "As we announced previously in June 2019, the Company, with the assistance of Houlihan Lokey Capital, Inc., has undertaken a review to identify and evaluate a wide range of potential strategic alternatives. That review is ongoing, and we believe that it is prudent, and in the best interests of our stockholders, to provide sufficient time for that review to conclude before we hold the Annual Meeting."
Gene Davis, Co-Chairman of the Board, added, "Our strategic review, which has been both thorough and comprehensive, has taken longer than we had initially thought it would. That said, we believe we are approaching the end of the process and we currently expect to announce the results thereof prior to the filing of our proxy materials. We would like to thank our stockholders for their support and patience."
