Texas Pacific Land Trust comments on recent actions of dissident group

Texas Pacific Land Trust commented on what the recent actions of the dissident group reveal about the group's apparent intentions for the Trust: "On June 24, 2019, the Trustees of TPL announced the formation of a Conversion Exploration Committee to evaluate the conversion of TPL into a C-corporation - one of the dissidents' core campaign demands (and something Trustee nominee General Don Cook has promised throughout his campaign to thoroughly explore). As part of this announcement, the Trustees invited Horizon Kinetics to designate a representative to join the Committee, which would give them an opportunity to participate in deliberations on the future of the Trust. Instead of identifying a representative to join the Committee, the dissident group has now filed in court a motion for declaratory judgment that Trustee David Barry was not validly elected back in January 2017 - based on their sudden claim that the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) made what the dissidents call an "error" two and a half years ago. They are also seeking an injunction to enjoin the Trustees "from taking any action on TPL's behalf," which would effectively render this $6 billion market cap company powerless, ultimately destroying shareholder value by disrupting TPL's operations. Contrary to the dissidents' assertions, David Barry was validly elected in January 2017 by nearly two-thirds of the votes cast. It is now clear that the dissidents have been misleading shareholders about their apparent intentions all along. The dissidents' motion is nothing other than an effort to seize control of not just one, but two of the three Trustee seats. In doing so, the dissidents have laid bare their apparent intention: to undertake a hostile takeover by seizing control of TPL without paying a control premium to all shareholders. What's at risk if the dissident group obtains control of TPL? We believe they would push for a sale of TPL.1 Although Horizon Kinetics' investment in TPL has performed extraordinarily well, many of the fund's remaining investments have been lackluster.2 Horizon Kinetics may want to cash out of some of their TPL position to compensate for other investments. However, with a large stake in a relatively thinly traded stock, Horizon Kinetics cannot sell its position without driving down the price. Even worse, under federal securities laws, Horizon Kinetics is subject to strict volume limitations for sales of TPL stock, which means it could take the fund several years to monetize its position in TPL through sales on the open market.3 That may leave Horizon Kinetics feeling that it has no other choice than to push for a sale of TPL - with no concern as to whether the other shareholders would receive full value. After all, just imagine if we had sold TPL two years ago when it was merely a ~$2 billion company?4 We would have left billions of dollars in shareholder value on the table. On multiple previous occasions, Horizon Kinetics assured the Trustees and management that they were pleased with TPL's performance and that their only issue was the need to modernize the Trust's corporate governance. Their actions since the beginning of this campaign, however, tell a different story. The Trust has made substantial efforts to accommodate the dissidents, but they have refused to take part in any constructive conversation. For example: On April 5, Horizon Kinetics first agreed to consider a compromise candidate but reneged on that promise the following day. On May 8, the Trustees sent a communication labeled "Subject to Settlement Privilege/Confidential" to Horizon Kinetics in an effort to set up a meeting to discuss an amicable resolution. Instead of agreeing to meet, the dissidents published the confidential communication in a remarkable breach of ethical norms. And now, the dissidents have refused to participate in the evaluation of conversion to a C-corp, which has supposedly been one of their core campaign issues. It has now become clear that the dissidents' campaign is actually not really about TPL's corporate structure, "ethical corporate governance" or "transparency." The dissidents don't want any amicable resolution that leaves them without the true prize: control of the Trust. After all, TPL is a prized asset, having outperformed 99% of the NYSE in the past five years leading up to the dissidents' proxy contest. The Trustees will take all necessary actions to protect TPL and its value for all shareholders."
