We are extremely grateful for the strong support expressed by our fellow shareholders, as well as all three leading proxy advisory services. We hope that today’s vote is enough to ensure that going forward, CoreLogic’s Board acts with the best interests of all shareholders in mind. However, we are committed to remaining significant shareholders and we will not hesitate to use all options available to us to hold the Board accountable if need be.”
