Scion Capital Reaffirms Opposition to Gold Fields' Offer for Bolivar Gold - "ISS Canada agreed with Scion Capital's position that Bolivar's process and procedures in evaluating this offer were flawed, that the use of GMP and Sprott Securities was not necessarily appropriate, and that the golden parachute payments to Bolivar officers were excessive," said Michael J. Burry, Scion Capital's President. "However, the ISS Canada valuation analysis, on which they appear to base their recommendation, is fatally flawed. We don't believe ISS Canada should necessarily be providing investment advice and question whether they have the analytical staff to accurately evaluate the valuation issues with respect to Bolivar. Perhaps ISS Canada, formerly Fairvest, should stick to the core competency in corporate governance that earned its reputation in the first place. It is unclear to us how ISS Canada can on the one hand say this offer is not unfair to securityholders, but on the other hand criticize and question the process by which this offer came about." More
