Third Point's new 13F filing should come this week.
"In connection with their intended proxy solicitation, Third Point LLC and certain of its affiliates intend to file a proxy statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") to solicit stockholders of The Dow Chemical Company (the "Company")."Of course, no official decisions have been made yet in regards to a proxy, according to a source familiar.
In addition to the video, Third Point has launched a new website (value-dow.com). The hedge fund has also hired Raymond J. Milchovich, the former CEO of Foster Wheeler AG, and R. "Steve" Miller, the current chairman of AIG, as advisers. Third Point said that they "each have significant expertise in corporate turnarounds and operational management, skillsets Dow desperately needs to move forward."Meanwhile, the window for nominations to Dow's board opens at the end of this month.
