The Children's Place Retail Stores Sends Letter to Stockholders
SECAUCUS, N.J., June 26, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Children's Place Retail Stores, Inc. (Nasdaq:PLCE) today mailed a letter to stockholders in support of its three highly qualified and independent incumbent directors up for election at the Company's 2009 Annual Meeting of Stockholders on July 31, 2009. The Children's Place urges stockholders to vote FOR the Company's nominees, Sally Frame Kasaks, Malcolm Elvey, and Norman Matthews, on the WHITE proxy card -- and to reject the three hand-picked nominees of former Chairman and CEO Ezra Dabah. Since Mr. Dabah and his father-in-law, Stanley Silverstein, are existing members of the Board, election of Mr. Dabah's three hand-picked nominees would result in five of the nine members of the Company's Board being Mr. Dabah's personal designees.
