Forum Report: Dover Motorsports, Inc.


Trustee Response to Offer for Stock

Referring to the recently reported offer of a public investor to buy a block of Dover Motorsports stock from a trust controlled by the company’s chairman, the following reports have been filed relating to the trustee’s response:

The November 17, 2009 letter from the trustee, who is the company’s controlling shareholder as well as the chairman of the company’s board of directors, based a rejection of the offer on explanations that did not appear to be consistent with either the offer letter[1] or the publicly reported conditions relating to the company’s stock.[2]  The fund manager’s November 20 reply letter presented clarifications of the offer and suggested its reconsideration.

Since the trustee’s letter was reported in an SEC filing by the company, rather than by the trustee in his capacity as a shareholder, the company’s management has been asked to address the questions raised by that report. It should be noted that in making this request the Forum is not advocating any participant’s view of issues.  The Forum does, however, advocate the provision of information required for investor decisions.
