THE ADER GROUP'S NOMINEES ARE BEST POSITIONED TO CREATE VALUE FOR ALL IGT SHAREHOLDERS
We are convinced that our highly-qualified, independent, forward-looking nominees are in the best position to look out for your interests:
- Mr. Mathewson offers his fellow shareholders a unique blend of experience and independence. He has garnered decades of industry expertise, including approximately 17 years at IGT – during which time your company's stock price increased by 25,481% on a split-adjusted basis. At the same time, he now also provides the clarity of a broader, more objective perspective, having not served as an IGT employee or director since his retirement in 2003. He is not afraid of stating the hard facts in the boardroom.
- Mr. Silvers brings to the boardroom the benefit of his seventeen years of analytical experience in the casino gaming industry and Nevada market, as well as hands on work with many IGT customers and competitors in the core slot machine and systems business. He also has extensive financial markets experience which we believe is currently underrepresented in the boardroom.
- Mr. Brooks also provides extensive capital markets experience, particularly in investing in distressed companies and debt, and we believe his financially disciplined approach will serve investors well in the boardroom.
We strongly urge you to seize the opportunity our nominees offer for meaningful change in the IGT boardroom. Please vote FOR the Ader slate TODAY – by using the enclosed GOLD proxy card to vote by telephone, by Internet or by signing, dating and returning the GOLD proxy card in the postage-paid envelope provided.
