Relational Investors LLC And CalSTRS Urge Timken’s Board To Take Action To Separate The Company’s Businesses To Unlock Shareholder Value

Relational and CalSTRS expressed their intent to continue to dialogue with shareholders and the broader investment community about the value creation potential of the separation of Timken’s steel business. Their hope is that investors communicate their views directly with the Company, prompting the Board to act now to effectuate a separation, reserving the opportunity to make a clear public statement of their support through their votes at the annual meeting on the shareholder proposal CalSTRS sponsored, with the support of Relational, as disclosed in their Schedule 13D filed November 28, 2012, as amended February 19, 2013.

Attached is the letter from Relational and CalSTRS to the Timken Board of Directors.
