Sovereign Capital Management Group Issues Stop, Look and Listen Letter to Shareholders

Sovereign Capital Management Group today announced that they issued an open letter urging ATA shareholders to STOP, LOOK and LISTEN before responding to any proposals by the Board of Directors regarding the future of the company.

 
PRLog - Jul. 31, 2012 - SAN DIEGO -- Sovereign Capital Management Group, a San Diego-based leader in property acquisition and management, and manager of the Committee to Protect Apartment Trust of America (“ATA”) Investors, today announced that they issued an open letter urging ATA shareholders to STOP, LOOK and LISTEN before responding to any proposals by the Board of Directors regarding the future of the company.

Mr. Todd Kiehnau, a Sovereign Capital Management Group representative, urges shareholders to carefully review this letter, stating, “Our letter is intended to respond to some misguided accusations from ATA’s Board, and also draw attention to the ATA’s mismanagement, poor financial condition and the potential losses that shareholders may face.”  

An excerpt of the letter to shareholders follows:

The Committee to Protect ATA Investors believes that ATA’S current management is in active negotiations exploring the liquidation of ATA’s assets that we believe will result in substantial losses to the ATA stockholders. We expect that ATA’s Board of Directors will present a liquidation plan and/or a request to extend the listing deadline to the stockholders in the very near future.  Upon presentation of current management’s plan, we encourage the ATA stockholders to STOP, LOOK and LISTEN for a counter-proposal from the committee before taking any action.  The committee believes ATA has great potential that should not be wasted by ongoing mismanagement by ATA’s current management or by any unfavorable liquidation plan.
