Audley Proposes New Board Members For Walter Energy

Stocks in this article: WLT

Mr. Clark received an MBA from New York University's Stern School of Business in 1998, and a B.S.B.A. in Finance from Villanova University in 1993.

Mr. Julian Treger (50)

Mr. Julian Treger is one of the most experienced activists in the mining space. Most notably Mr. Treger was the driving force behind the rescue of Western Coal from near bankruptcy in 2007, the restructuring of its management and board, the implementation of its growth plan and its ultimate sale to Walter Energy. He called on Western Coal’s management to engage with potential acquirors to consider a sale of the business in 2010 when the stock was trading in the range of C$4.00 to C$5.00 per share. The company was eventually sold to Walter Energy in 2010 for C$11.50 per share. Mr. Treger also helped uncover significant value at UK Coal, a UK-listed coal miner, in 2006. He has subsequently been active in a number of coal investments in Australia, Canada and South Africa. Through related entities, Mr. Treger also acts as an advisor to the Audley family of funds, which are shareholders in Walter Energy. Prior to starting Audley, he co-founded the Active Value Funds which pioneered activism in Europe.

Mr. Treger received an AB (Hons) from Harvard College in 1984 and a MBA from Harvard Business School in 1988.
