Computer Associates Fires Back at Wyly

Company's annual user conference held under cloud of dissident shareholder. StaffJuly 9, 2001

Computer Associates’ chairman Charles Wang and CEO Sanjay Kumar used the firm’s annual user conference, CA World, as a forum to blast Sam Wyly, the Texas-based shareholder who is trying to unseat management.

Wyly’s challenge to Wang and Kumar burst on the scene in early June, when he accused the company’s management of failing to produce an adequate return to shareholders.

According to a report from Reuters on Monday morning, Wang called Wyly’s challenge a “a big waste of time given what we have accomplished.”
