Tracking stock plan for American Blue Ribbon, other assets facing opposition

The majority owner of Nashville-based restaurant holding company American Blue Ribbon Holdings has run into some headwinds in trying to carve out that business and others not related to its main real estate insurance companies. Fidelity National executives early this year announced their plan to spin their non-core assets — which also includes investments in Ceridian and Remy — into a separate structure with its own tracking stock. On Monday, they issued a lengthy statement restating their case in the face of negative recommendations from proxy advisors ISS and Glass Lewis. Shareholders will have their say next Wednesday.

Former Brookdale CEO leaving company's board

Bill Sheriff, the former CEO of Brookdale Senior Living, has told the senior living company he will not stand for re-election to its board of directors at this year's annual shareholders' meeting. Sheriff led American Retirement Corp. before its 2005 merger with Brookdale and stepped down as CEO of the combined company early last year. Word of his decision to retire from Brookdale's board comes shortly after the company said current CEO Andy Smith had joined the board following the departure of two executives from Fortress Investment Group.

Ben Leedle has a slightly different interpretation of Healthways' North Tide board deal

Healthways CEO Ben Leedle on Tuesday passed on to his employees word of the wellness company's ceasefire with activist investment fund North Tide Capital. Calling the deal to give North Tide three board seats a "positive outcome," he also took time to point out that he — a prime target of North Tide manager Conan Laughlin — and other senior executives will stay in their jobs.

In addition, Leedle described the Strategic Review Committee that will soon be formed as having the goal "to assure that the board and management remain aligned on the company strategy." That's an interesting — and, given Laughlin's calls for big changes, perhaps somewhat optimistic — spin on the language contained in the standstill agreement, which says "the purpose of the Strategic Review Committee shall be to review, evaluate and make recommendations to the Board regarding the Company's business strategy."

Here's a copy of Leedle's email:
