Four Independent Proxy Advisory Firms Unanimously Agree On
Serious Deficiencies in Target’s Corporate Governance Practices
     NEW YORK, May 22 — The Nominees for Shareholder Choice noted today that the four leading U.S. proxy advisory services have issued reports in connection with the on-going proxy contest at Target that are unanimous in calling for change to address shortcomings on Target’s board.
     While Target has recently challenged what it must consider inconvenient truths outlined by the leading proxy advisory service, RiskMetrics, the company has ignored the broader deficiencies in its corporate governance practices identified by the four proxy advisory services. In light of recent events, the arguments for change and fresh perspectives on the board have become only more compelling.
     The Nominees for Shareholder Choice noted the following points from the four proxy advisory service reports:
    On the need for fresh perspectives: “[G]iven the atypical strategies of the company with respect to credit cards and real estate, the board would benefit from new blood with the specific skill sets and incentives to ensure that the company is able to quickly capitalize on future opportunities.”
    In recommending AGAINST the board reduction proposal: “By rejecting a decrease in the size of the board, Target shareholders will ensure that at least one dissident nominee is elected to the board. Based on the qualifications and skill sets of the dissident nominees, we believe that the incremental addition of any one of the dissidents to the board likely would add value.”
    On lack of relevant experience of incumbent nominees: “[I]ncumbent nominees Trujillo and Tamke, while individually highly accomplished, have each been on the board for at least a decade, and appear to provide the least relevant experience for Target out of the group of incumbent directors.”
     PROXY Governance
    On lack of board expertise in credit cards: “[T]he enduring strategic question, though, is not whether to sell or keep the [credit card] business but how to mitigate the substantial risk and capital intensity of a non-core business. To the extent the dissidents, rather than the board, were driving that question in 2007 and 2008, the dissident argument that director experience could be better aligned with strategic challenges seems credible.”



    On the strength of the Nominees for Shareholder Choice: “The real strength in the dissident campaign, however, lies in the nominees, whose professional experience is directly relevant to certain strategic challenges the company faces (particularly outside its core retailing operations) yet which seem to be under-represented in the board as currently composed.”
     Glass Lewis
    On the compensation committee’s failure to implement effective executive compensation: “Director [James] Johnson served as chairman of the compensation committee in fiscal year 2007 and 2008, during which time the Company paid more compensation to its top executives but performed worse than its peers. The compensation committee has the responsibility of reviewing all aspects of the compensation program of the Company’s executive officers. It appears to us that Mr. Johnson, as chairman of the committee, has not effectively served shareholders in this regard.”
    On incumbent director Anne Mulcahy: “Director Mulcahy currently serves on the Company’s board while also serving as chairman and CEO of Xerox Corporation, a publicly held company, and two other public company boards... In our view, the time commitment required by this number of board memberships may preclude Ms. Mulcahy from fulfilling her responsibilities to the Company’s shareholders, as well as the shareholders of Xerox Corporation.”
    On recommending “WITHHOLD” for two incumbent nominees: Egan-Jones recommended shareholders withhold their votes for incumbent nominees Richard Kovacevich and George Tamke, both current members of Target’s Audit and Nominating Committees, nothing that “[w]e believe that key Board committees should be comprised solely of Independent outside directors for sound governance practice.”
    On Target’s insular election process: “What [Target] terms an election of directors is, in reality, a ratification of a single slate. The slate is chosen by incumbent directors and management. Such a voting process fails to provide shareholders with meaningful choices, when true elections have been found throughout the non-corporate world (e.g., Federal, state and local governments, and educational institutions) to produce successful results.”
    On Target’s staggered board: “Staggered terms for directors increase the difficulty for shareholders of making fundamental changes to the composition and behavior of a board. We prefer that the entire board of a company be elected annually to provide appropriate responsiveness to shareholders.”
     The Nominees for Shareholder Choice believe that the proxy advisory services have provided a balanced picture that Target’s board has misleadingly excerpted to distort the facts.
     The Nominees for Shareholder Choice noted that all four firms have identified deficiencies in Target’s board that can and should be addressed in the current election.
