Chapman Capital Demands Embarcadero Technologies (EMBT) Director Haroian Resign
Chapman Capital, a 9.3% holder of Embarcadero Technologies Inc. (Nasdaq: EMBT), demanded that Mr. Gary E Haroian immediately resign from the company's board of directors.
Robert Chapman said, "Mr. Haroian has been compensated into the hundred of thousand of dollars while acting out the part of a 'career director' of the board of Embarcadero, Aspen Technology, Inc., Lightbridge, Inc., Network Engines, Inc., and Phase Forward, Inc. In order to reinstate any semblance of obeying his responsibility to the owners of these public companies, Mr. Haroian should resign from whichever boards necessary to allow for this adequate attention and focus on the remaining issuers."
Chapman Capital has recently demanded that the company's Board of Directors maximize shareholder value via a change-of-control transaction. Chapman has determined to seek nominees to replace Class I directors Timothy C.K. Chou and Frank M. Polestra, and Class II directors Michael J. Roberts and Samuel T. Spadafora, should a sale of Embarcadero not be announced by March 30, 2007.
