Marcato Capital Presentation On Epiq Systems $EPIQ

Marcato Capital Management LP ("Marcato"), a San Francisco-based investment manager which manages funds that beneficially own approximately 4.8% of the outstanding common shares of Epiq Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: EPIQ) ("Epiq" or the "Company"), today released a detailed presentation to Epiq shareholders outlining its analysis of the Company and its conclusion that significant change at the board and management levels is needed in order to maximize shareholder value.

The presentation can be viewed here.

Shawn Badlani, Partner at Marcato, stated: "The Epiq Systems board has been ineffective by failing to hold management accountable for repeatedly missing its own financial forecasts, overseeing a company that has significantly underperformed its peers and benchmarks, and rejecting a prior premium cash offer that the stock has not approached for over eight years.  Quite simply, change at the board level is necessary to prevent further value erosion."
