In a letter delivered to MobileIron’s Board of Directors, White Hat details its views that the proposed price of $7.05 per share falls short of fair value by a number of measures. As a long term investor, White Hat believes MobileIron is a growth story with a bright future, and that public shareholders deserve to participate in its standalone potential, or, at a minimum, receive a change-in-control transaction price that fairly values it.
Attached is White Hat’s letter to the Board.
