Despite the attempted eleventh-hour cancellation by the incumbent Trustees , 60+ people attended, travelling from as far as California, Ohio and Massachusetts and, from abroad, London, Canada, and The Bahamas.
Although the TPL General Agents and incumbent Trustees were not present and delivered intimidating correspondence to Eric Oliver urging him not to attend the previously scheduled meeting, Eric Oliver and shareholders arrived at the meeting location and were routed by building security and personnel of TPL’s counsel to a conference facility in the same building.
Primary Speakers: Eric Oliver (SoftVest, L.P.), representative from DF King (Investor Group’s proxy firm), representative from Gibson Dunn (Investor Group’s legal firm), representative from Sidley Austin (Trust’s legal firm)
