CalPERS Opposes Reelection of Sanmina Board Members PDF Print E-mail

SACRAMENTO – One of the larger institutional shareholders of Sanmina-SCI is opposing the reelection of seven of its directors.
The California Public Employees' Retirement System claims Sanmina-SCI has not resolved issues with regard to its stock performance and the board's corporate governance practices. CalPERS owns 2.1 million of Sanmina’s shares.
The largest holder of Sanmina-SCI stock is AXA, with some 61 million shares as of Sept. 30.
"Sanmina has been unresponsive to our placing the company on our '2007 Focus List' for underperformance," said Russell Read, CalPERS chief investment officer. "Its stock price continues to decline and trail its industry peers. The board's failed acquisition strategy has destroyed a substantial amount of shareowner value."
Votes will be refused for Neil Bonke, Alain Couder, Mario Rosati, Gene Sapp, Wayne Shortridge, Jure Sola and Jacqueline Ward at the company's annual meeting Monday.
Sola is chairman and CEO of Sanmina-SCI. Sapp is the former head of SCI, whose acquisition Sanmina is still grappling with.

Eastern-US: China’s New Competitor?

Parity emerges among EMS Factories from Asia, Mexico and the US.

For the first time in years we see parity in the Eastern US among EMS factories from Asia, Mexico and the US. This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
