In a letter to the company contained in its latest 13D, Impactive called criticized what it called the company’s “well-below market returns over multiple periods relative to the S&P 500, S&P 400 and its closest peers, significant margin gap versus its closest peers, and egregious spending with seemingly no accountability for returns. Impactive highlights that despite the board delivering significantly submarket returns and collectively own less than 1% of the company, the board has nonetheless increased management’s compensation over the past five years. As such, Impactive seeks to add a shareholder representative to the board to better align pay for performance, refocus on capital allocation and protect and drive long term shareholder value.”
