GREENWICH, Conn., Aug. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Blue Harbour Group, L.P., which today reported that it owns approximately 9.1 million shares or 6.4% of Rackspace Hosting, Inc., issued the following statement:
Todd R. Marcy, a Managing Director of Blue Harbour, stated, "Rackspace has built an incredibly valuable business with excellent long-term prospects that we believe are not reflected in the company's current share price. We believe the Board and management team are committed to closing this significant valuation gap. We look forward to a constructive, ongoing dialogue on the various alternatives Rackspace has to unlock and deliver meaningful shareholder value, whether as a standalone independent entity or pursuant to the current strategic review process."
