California’s S&W Seed Company announces the election of Alexander C. Matina to its board of directors. Matina currently serves as vice president, investments at MFP Investors LLC, the family office of Michael F. Price, which focuses on long-term, value investment opportunities.
MFP Investors LLC currently owns approximately 9.6 percent of the common shares outstanding of S&W Seed Company and is also a holder of the company’s convertible debentures that were issued in December 2014 in connection with S&W’s acquisition of DuPont Pioneer’s alfalfa seed production and research assets.
“I’ve had the privilege of working with Alex and it’s very exciting that MFP has taken such a solid position in S&W and is focused on our continued success. His knowledge and expertise will serve us well in the coming years,” says Mark Grewal, chief executive officer for S&W Seed Company and a member of the board of directors.
