“We are grateful to our fellow Aimco shareholders for their support throughout our campaign. Today’s vote to elect Jim Sullivan to the Board is a clear signal that shareholders are no longer satisfied with the status quo at Aimco, and we are confident that Jim will be a voice for change from day one. He will bring an important perspective to the Board as it oversees the Company’s efforts to maximize value and drive improved accountability for all shareholders and we know Jim is committed to working collaboratively with the rest of the Board to help Aimco realize its full potential.”
