Furthermore, they expressly communicated to Starboard that, recognizing Starboard’s reported status as a 9.9% shareholder, Depomed was prepared to facilitate Starboard’s delivery of the formal notice to call a special meeting without having to conduct any further solicitation-whether public or private. They never heard from Starboard or its advisors on this point.
