Wet Seal terminates rights plan; offers two board seats to activist investor

BY Katherine Boccaccio

Foothills Ranch, Calif. — The Wet Seal Inc. said Thursday it has dropped its temporary shareholder rights plan, citing feedback from stakeholders, and has proposed to expand its board to include two nominees of activist investor Clinton Group.

In July, Clinton Group, which owns approximately 7% of Wet Seal, called for a sale of the retailer, expressing dissatisfaction with its performance, and made a play for four seats on the board. In response, the retailer adopted a temporary shareholder rights plan with a 10% trigger.

Wet Seal said its two board members are former Wet Seal CEO Kathy Bronstein and John Goodman. It has offered to add two more directors with retail experience from among Clinton’s proposed slate.
