T&K Toka nominates Kota Isogai for election to its Board of Directors as Dalton Investments’ Representative

– JAPAN,  Miyoshi –  T&K Toka, a manufacturer of ink and synthetic resin for printing, painting, and adhesives, sent an invitation to join its Board of Directors to Dalton Investments LLC‘s senior analyst, Kota Isogai. He will be nominated for the upcoming election to the Board of Directors at the Company’s upcoming annual general meeting in June.

Dalton’s clients currently own more than twenty percent of T&K Toka. The Company recommended the appointment of Kota Isogai as an Independent Director in order to enhance the alignment of interests between the Board, management, and shareholders. Mr. Isogai intends to focus his efforts on working with his fellow directors to improve the Company’s capital allocation.

“We believe that shareholder representation on the Boards of Dalton’s portfolio companies will improve the corporate allocation of capital and enhance value for all shareholders,” stated Mr. Isogai. “Japan’s corporate governance initiative has greatly improved the opportunity for large shareholders to voice their recommendations and Dalton has a successful history of constructive, private engagement with management and, if necessary, through shareholder resolutions to be voted on by all shareholders.”

Mr. Isogai joined Dalton after graduating with his Master’s degree in Business Administration from New York University’s Stern School of Business in 2015, where he was a student of Dalton’s Founder, James B. Rosenwald, III in his class, “Global Value Investing.” Prior to joining Dalton, Mr. Isogai worked in valuation and modeling at PricewaterhouseCoopers, and prior to that, as an auditor at Deloitte.
