DAVENPORT, Iowa, Feb. 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lee Enterprises, Incorporated (NASDAQ: LEE) today issued the following statement in response to the recent lawsuit filed by Alden Global Capital LLC (together with its affiliates, “Alden”) in the Delaware Court of Chancery:

“We are disappointed, but not surprised, that Alden continues to pursue increasingly desperate measures in an attempt to destabilize Lee and advance its grossly undervalued hostile proposal to purchase the Company. We are applying the clear and plain language of our bylaws, which is not new, and our position that plurality voting applies at this meeting (because of Alden’s actions) has been abundantly clear in our disclosures for over a month now. Alden asked us last week to amend our bylaws to change the clear meaning of them in the middle of an election. The Board properly determined not to do so.”

Lee’s Board urges shareholders to protect their investment by voting FORALL the Board’s nominees using the WHITE proxy card. All shareholders at the close of business on January 12, 2022 are entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting.

More information related to Lee’s 2022 annual meeting can be found at investors.lee.net/2022-annual-meeting.

If you have any questions or require any assistance in voting your shares, please contact Lee’s proxy solicitor:
