Rent-A-Center 16.8% shareholder Engaged Capital nominates Carol McFate to Board

On May 25, 2018, Engaged Capital and certain of its affiliates entered into a letter agreement with Rent-A-Center in connection with that certain Cooperation Agreement between Engaged and the Issuer. In accordance with the Cooperation Agreement, Engaged proposed Carol McFate to be nominated for election to the Board of Directors at the 2018 annual meeting of stockholders and the Board confirmed her qualifications to serve on the Board. In light of the Board's continuing review of strategic and financial alternatives to maximize stockholder value, Engaged elected to waive, pursuant to the Letter Agreement, its right under the Cooperation Agreement to put forth Ms. McFate as a potential director nominee for election at the 2018 Annual Meeting. In exchange for the waiver, at any time prior to the termination of the Cooperation Agreement, Engaged may put forth Ms. McFate as a potential director nominee for election or appointment to the Board.

Rent-A-Center upgraded to Hold after reports of takeover bids at Loop Capital
As previously reported, Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba upgraded Rent-A-Center to Hold from Sell following "widespread media reports" that the company has received multiple takeover bids, including one from turnaround specialist Cerberus. The analyst, who also cited the company's report of its first core U.S. same store sales growth since 2015 in his upgrade, said he continues to have doubts about whether Rent-A-Center will ultimately be sold at a significant premium to its current stock price. Chukumba raised his price target on Rent-A-Center shares to $9 from $6.

Aaron's upgraded to Buy from Hold at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba upgraded Aaron's (AAN) to Buy and raised his price target for the shares to $52 from $45. The analyst remains "impressed" by Progressive's revenue growth and thinks the unit will benefit from Rent-A-Center's (RCII) "ongoing struggles." Further, he thinks Aaron's Q1 earnings miss "was not nearly as bad as it appeared." The analyst views the recent pullback in the shares as a buying opportunity.

Rent-A-Center's core business remains in secular decline, says Loop Capital
Rent-A-Center "continued to disappoint" in Q1, with a marginal sequential improvement in the company's sales trend more than offset by continued profit margin deterioration and "much worse" than expected earnings, Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba tells investors in a post-earnings research note. The analyst does not believe the company's new initiatives to reduce costs and improve working capital change the fact that its core U.S. business remains in secular decline. Chukumba keeps a Hold rating on Rent-A-Center, based solely on the possibility the company may be acquired in the near future. He has a $9 price target on the shares.
