Red Lobster Investors Could Lose $850 Million In Value In Spinoff, Says Activist Hedge Fund

The claim comes in a new presentation by Starboard Value obtained by BuzzFeed and expected to be made public Tuesday morning.



Keith Bedford / Reuters / Reuters


Activist hedge fund Starboard Value is turning up the heat in its battle with Red Lobster owner Darden Restaurants, releasing two detailed presentations calling the company's plans to spin off the seafood restaurant chain the "wrong spinoff of the wrong restaurant chain for the wrong reasons."


In the presentations obtained by BuzzFeed, which total 207 pages and are expected to be made public Tuesday morning, Starboard, the owner of a 5.6% stake in Darden, says the company's shareholders could lose up to $850 million in value if the spinoff goes ahead as planned — something the hedge fund, run by Jeffrey Smith and other activist investors, including 2% owner Barington Capital, are trying to stop. They've called for a special shareholder vote on the matter ahead of Darden's annual meeting, which is slated for September, months after the company's desired closing date for the deal of May 26. Thus far, Darden management has refused to call such a meeting, stating it would prefer to communicate directly with shareholders on the issue.


Only a few weeks ago, Darden posted its latest in a string of weak quarterly earnings. The company's history of poor results with the Olive Garden and Red Lobster brands led Barington to propose a division of the company into two units late last year, one consisting of its Olive Garden and Red Lobster brands and another its faster-growing restaurant chains such as The Capital Grille and LongHorn Steakhouse, as well as the creation of a publicly traded real estate investment trust for the property it owns.


Darden responded to Barington's proposal by saying it would pursue a sale or spinoff of the Red Lobster brand only. Both Barington and Starboard believe that move will rob shareholders of value and that keeping Red Lobster and Olive Garden together will ultimately make them both worth more.


Starboard also claims in its presentation that Darden's real estate is conservatively worth around $4 billion, and, if separated, could add another $1 to $2 billion in additional shareholder value. Starboard says that additional value would be jeopardized if Darden spins off Red Lobster on its own.


Starboard's presentation concludes with a reminder that Darden's entire board is up for reelection mere months after the proposed special shareholder vote. (For its part, Barington last week sent a letter to the independent directors of Darden's board saying they should consider finding a new CEO and appointing an independent chairman.)


"The Special Meeting will provide an alternative forum for shareholders to show the Board that Darden's shareholders will not stand to be silenced on this critical issue," Starboard says in its presentation. "Given their poor track record, management and the Board should not be trusted to rush this critical decision."

8. I haven't had my wisdom teeth taken out. Maybe that has something to do with it?

9. I've heard news stories of people going to the E.R. after their faces swelled up and their headaches were unbearable. Apparently, their wisdom teeth got infected. The infection would spread to their brains. Some even died...

10. OH MY GOD.

11. My cheeks feel a little swollen. Either that, or I've gained a few pounds.

12. I'm pretty sure it's not my wisdom teeth.

4" to 5" Terra Cotta Flower Pots

Available at Amazon

I tried a variety of different sizes and found that clay flowerpots between 4 and 5 inches in diameter work best. The key is matching the pot with a hole saw that is has a diameter about half an inch smaller than the pot.


3/4" Pine Boards

Available at the Home Depot

I reccommend boards that are at least 2 inches wider than that the diameter of the pots.


Rope

Available at the Home Depot

I used 1/4" diameter rope that was intended to be used as a clothesline. I think a thicker rope would add a nice aesthetic to the garden.


Zip Ties

Available at the Home Depot

Zip ties – also called cable ties or tie wraps – come in a variety of different sizes. I tried both large 10" ties and thinner 4" ties. The thinner ties are much easier to work with.

100 Thoughts We've All Had While Shopping At Sephora

Do I need this $40 eyeshadow palette, or do I NEED it?


1. Oops, I'm all out of this one specific product I use every day! Better pop into Sephora real quick.

2. Good lord, it's bright in here.

3. And it smells...good? Weird? A lot.

4. No, ma'am, I don't need any help today.

5. Your bright green eyeshadow sure is daring, though.

6. Actually wait I have no idea where I'm going.

7. I could have sworn that the brand I want was right over there by the entrance.

8. Maybe they've rearranged the store?

9. Or maybe I'm going crazy.

10. Maybe I've never even been here in my life.

11. Maybe all of time and space is a lie.



shopinternationalplaza.com


12. Oh word, there it is.

13. Alllllll the way at the back of the store.

14. I may as well stop and look at some other stuff while I'm on my way.

15. Ooh, this lipstick is so cute!

16. Like I'm not REALLY a lipstick person but maybe this will convert me.

17. I wish there weren't this curly weird hair stuck to the tester.

18. I guess that's why Mother Nature invented rubbing alcohol.

19. Am I even applying this right?

20. Should I stick to the natural lines of my lips?

21. Ehh that looks a little thin.

22. I'll just try going a litttttttle wider.

23. Fuck.

24. Clown City, USA, population: me.

25. Thank god there's makeup remover.

26. That...kind of worked?

27. I can rock this crusty pinkish tinge.

28. Maybe everyone will just think it's lip stain.

29. No, ma'am, seriously, I actually don't need your help, the last time I was here one of your cohorts applied eyeshadow up past my forehead.

30. Onto the next row!

31. Sparkly eyeliner! Sparkly blush!

32. Sparkly hairspray?

33. Who could possibly ever need that many sparkles in their life.

34. JK IT'S ME BUYING ALL OF THIS.
