AVR Status

Following its $31.50 per share tender offer to acquire 89% of Schuff stock and subsequent open market purchases to secure 90.6% ownership in December 2014, HC2 Holdings, Inc., stated its intent to proceed with a short-form merger "as soon as practicable.”

Upon HC2's notice of merger, the Forum will support demands for appraisal of DBM (f/k/a Schuff) stock for which Participants have reserved AVR Management.



Project Status

The Shareholder Forum agreed to support appraisal rights for Participants who had reserved Appraised Value Rights ("AVR") Management of their investments in DBM Global Incorporated (f/k/a Schuff International Inc.) by October 1, 2014. Additional reservations of AVR Management may be considered.

HC2 Holdings, Inc. (HCHC) is expected to proceed with a buyout of DBM/Schuff minority shareholders at any time, based on its November 3, 2014, SEC Form 8-K (Exhibit 99.5) statement that "On October 29, 2014, we entered into an open-market transaction to increase our ownership of Schuff to 90.6%, and we intend to execute a short-form merger as soon as practicable. Such short-form merger will increase our ownership of Schuff shares to 100%."
