Annual Shareholder Meeting To Be Held As Scheduled on March 10
DAVENPORT, Iowa, Feb. 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lee Enterprises, Incorporated (NASDAQ: LEE) announced that the Delaware Court of Chancery today denied all of the motions brought by Alden Global Capital LLC (together with its affiliates, “Alden”), which were aimed at delaying the Company’s 2022 Annual Meeting.

“This is now the second court ruling in less than two weeks rejecting Alden’s desperate efforts to destabilize Lee and push its grossly undervalued proposal to purchase the Company. Lee applauds the Court’s latest decision and looks forward to holding its 2022 Annual Meeting on March 10, 2022, as planned.”
Lee urges shareholders to vote FOR all three of Lee’s proposed director nominees – Mary E. Junck, Herbert W. Moloney and Kevin D. Mowbray – at the Company’s 2022 Annual Meeting.
