I am writing on behalf of The International Campaign for Justice in Bhopal, a coalition of Bhopal survivor organisations, international volunteers and environmental, social justice and human rights groups committed to achieving complete justice for people impacted by the world’s largest industrial disaster, along with those affected by ongoing contamination of their environment due to toxic waste abandoned by Union Carbide in Bhopal, concerning a number of inadequate and/or misleading disclosures within the companies’ joint merger proxy (the “Proxy”). We hope that, in bringing these deficiencies and outright omissions to your attention, the Boards of Directors will avoid the need for shareholders to seek judicial intervention, instead remedying the disclosure violations in the proxy by providing Dow and DuPont shareholders the necessary and required disclosures prior to their voting with shares at the Companies’ July 20, 2016 special meetings.
