In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...

Ader Group Files Preliminary Proxy Statement Seeking To Restore IGT's Focus On Casino Industry
- Nominates Three Independent, Highly-Qualified Individuals With Significant Relevant Experience -

NEW YORK, Jan. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Jason N. Ader of Ader Investment Management LP ("AIM") publicly announced that AIM has filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission a preliminary proxy statement to elect three independent nominees to the IGT Board of Directors. 

The Ader Group intends to nominate a "short slate" of three directors with relevant experience, including significant casino gaming industry experience and knowledge of financial markets.  The slate will include IGT's Former Chairman and CEO Charles N. Mathewson, AIM's Daniel B. Silvers, and Raymond J. Brooks, Jr., principal of R.J. Brooks Cos. and former CEO of ACA Financial Guaranty Corp. 

By obtaining a significant minority of IGT's board, the Ader Group seeks to refocus IGT on a business model which it believes led to IGT's historic success. The Ader Group seeks to restore shareholder value by re-focusing IGT on its core slot machine and systems business. 

"We believe IGT is deeply undervalued as a result of (i) a lack of focus on the core slot machine and systems business that we believe generated IGT's historic success, (ii) a lack of casino gaming industry experience in management ranks, and (iii) the results of poor capital allocation decisions highlighted by a series of costly non-strategic acquisitions.  We are convinced our slate will make a major improvement in this company," said Ader.

Ader further noted that the company's stock price, which declined by 16.2 percent in 2012, "speaks for itself." 

"We believe investors are confounded by IGT's strategic direction and that IGT's valuation has suffered as a result. We are further convinced that IGT has abdicated its competitive advantage in its core business through its recent strategy.  We expect that this new slate will add experience and depth," said Ader.

Ader's selection of nominees – which do not include Ader himself – make clear that this proxy contest is solely about improving shareholder value. 

"This shareholder election is not about any agenda other than refocusing IGT on its historically successful core business to improve shareholder value. While IGT may choose to try and distract shareholders from the key issues, our goal is solely to maximize value to IGT's shareholders," said Ader.
