The Manitowoc Company Highlights Commitment To Delivering Shareholder Value Through Execution Of Strategic Imperatives

The Manitowoc Company, Inc. (NYSE: MTW) today acknowledged that Relational Investors LLC has filed a Schedule 13D with the Securities and Exchange Commission reporting that it has acquired beneficial ownership of 8.52% of the company's common stock.

“As an organization, we are committed to acting in the best interest of the company and all of its stakeholders. We have maintained, and will continue to maintain, an open dialogue with all of our shareholders. In fact, we have already had several conversations with Relational Investors. As part of our regular evaluation of the company’s enterprise-wide strategic imperatives to drive long-term shareholder value, we will continue to consider and review Relational Investors’ suggestions,” commented Glen E. Tellock, Manitowoc’s chairman and chief executive officer.

“We have great confidence in the strength of our business and our ability to manage the company in any market environment. The Board of Directors and management team remain committed to building value for all shareholders through the continued execution of our strategy, including margin expansion initiatives which are already delivering results, and the continued evaluation of our capital allocation policy following our substantial deleveraging since the Enodis transaction,” concluded Tellock.

Goldman, Sachs & Co. is serving as financial advisor to The Manitowoc Company, Inc.
