Activist bloggers at http://www.ReformPICONow.com have expressed satisfaction on PICO Holdings' Preliminary Proxy Statement released March 10. The bloggers consider themselves a generally hard to please bunch.
The bloggers state that they will vote for all 5 director candidates: Daniel Silvers, Andrew Cates, Eric Speron, Max Webb and Greg Bylinsky. "Thus far, these men have markedly improved PICO in all respects: corporate governance, asset sales, communication, accountability, expense reduction. Let's not forget, four of the five candidates took bold action in December 2016, removing two self-interested Directors that exercised control."
