Mr. LoGiudice’s biography (arrow added for emphasis)


VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Glance Technologies Inc. (CSE:GET.CN) (OTCQB:GLNNF) (FKT:GJT) (“Glance” or the “Company”) today cautioned shareholders that they should carefully review any biographical information they receive from Penny Green regarding John LoGiudice, one of Ms. Green’s dissident nominees for the Glance Board of Directors.

Glance is developing a Management Information Circular (“MIC”) with a complete response to Ms. Green’s requisition to change Glance’s Board (the “Green Requisition”). Glance intends to file this response, including a description of Glance’s excellent progress and prospects, well in advance of the June 12, 2018 shareholders’ meeting. Pursuant to applicable securities laws, Glance does not intend to solicit proxies for that meeting until the MIC has been filed.

However, Glance does wish to call shareholders’ attention to irregularities in the resume of dissident nominee Mr. LoGiudice. Glance noticed the irregularities based on a comparison of publicly-filed documents against two Green Requisition documents.  In particular, and as described in further detail below:

  • Florida state records do not support the Green Requisition’s assertion of success for Mr. LoGiudice’s 13 startups; and
     
  • Mr. LoGiudice is not listed as President of telecommunications multinational Ericsson in any of that company’s annual reports, contrary to certain assertions contained in the Green Requisition.

The unsupported claim of 13 successful startups

In the Green Requisition news release, dated February 21, 2018, Mr. LoGiudice is proclaimed to have played “senior roles in helping numerous start-up companies reach success.” The news release lists the names of 13 such companies (the “13 Startups”).

First, the list of 13 Startups is inflated: Florida state records show that three of the companies are the same: they just changed names as is evident from the filings below.

More significantly, far from achieving success, all but one were dissolved or became inactive. For further certainty, Glance provides the table below, including an embedded URL link to relevant Florida state records in the Status column.

The claim to have been President of Ericsson

In one portion of a Green Requisition document, Mr. LoGiudice is listed as having been the President of Ericsson from 2009 to 2017. The claim is made in a biographical “Nominee Profile” table that forms part of a document dated February 20, 2018 and filed on SEDAR the following day, on Ms. Green’s behalf and reproduced below on the next page.

Glance reviewed Ericsson’s annual reports and news releases, going back as far as 2008. For President, Glance found the following names, none of which are Mr. LoGiudice’s:

  • January 15, 2017 and ongoing: Börje Ekholm
  • July 25, 2016 – January 15, 2017: Jan Frykhammar
  • January 1, 2010 - July 24, 2016:  Hans Vestberg
  • April 8, 2003 - December 31, 2009: Carl-Henric Svanberg

Questions for Ms. Green and the other dissident nominees

Here are some questions that shareholders should now be asking Ms. Green:

  • Does she believe that she delivered full, true and plain disclosure about Mr. LoGiudice in the Nominee profile and news release regarding the requisition?
  • Did she really believe that all of the 13 Startups associated with Mr. LoGiudice were successful?
  • Did she really believe that Mr. LoGiudice was a former President of Ericsson?
  • What steps did she take to investigate Mr. LoGiudice prior to submitting the requisition and publishing the related news release?
  • Does she now believe that her investigation was adequate?

Here are two questions that shareholders should now be asking Ms. Green’s two other dissident nominees, Spiros Margaris and William Davis III:

  • Do Mr. Margaris and Mr. Davis believe that they took adequate steps to investigate Mr. LoGiudice before agreeing to stand with him as dissident nominees?
  • Do Mr. Margaris and Mr. Davis believe that they took adequate steps to investigate each other and Ms. Green before agreeing to stand as Ms. Green’s dissident nominees?
