Clinton Group Provides Update And Voting Instructions On The Wet Seal Consent Solicitation

Stocks in this article: WTSLA

Any investor that needs assistance in getting their voting decision processed may contact Clinton Group's proxy solicitor, Okapi Partners, at +1-212-297-0720 or info@okapipartners.com.

Clinton Group noted that both Glass Lewis and ISS, the two leading proxy advisory firms, have provided support for the Clinton Group's proposals. Glass Lewis wrote that "given the [current Board's] lack of relevant experience and indecisiveness, we remain concerned about the future stewardship of the Company if significant board changes are not made." Glass Lewis supported removing four incumbent directors. ISS wrote that Clinton Group had made "a compelling case for a change."

"We want to be sure that all stockholders have a chance to weigh in on this important matter," said Mr. De Perio. "Wet Seal is an important investment for all of us and all stockholders should be given a chance to have their voice heard."

Any person or firm that owned Wet Seal stock on September 10, 2012 is entitled to vote.
