The company urges shareholders to vote for all Tegna nominees and highlights its “successful transformation, track record of value creation and accomplished board of directors.”

Tegna Inc. today sent a letter to shareholders extoling the company’s “highly qualified, engaged and diverse Board and its outstanding track record of shareholder value creation.”

Tegna has also filed a new investor presentation with the Securities and Exchange Commission detailing Tegna’s strategic transformation, track record of value creation and fit-for-purpose board to oversee the continued execution of Tegna’s strategy.

The letter and presentation also outline the board’s serious concerns about Standard General’s proxy fight and its nominees to the Tegna board of directors. Its concerns include:

  • “Standard General’s track record (including at Media GeneralAmerican ApparelRadio Shackand Twin River Holdings) and significant investments in and influence over Standard Media Group and Mediaco Holding, two emerging competitors in the broadcasting industry.
  • “Standard General’s behavior during this proxy fight, including blatant disregard for the facts about Tegna and demonstrably false statements about Tegna’s margins, retransmission rates, deal multiples, debt covenants, engagement with potential buyers, and many other topics.
  • “The risks to Tegna shareholders of replacing any of Tegna’s Board members with Standard General’s nominees, especially at this time of national crisis.”
