ones, he painted a five year vision that sounded to me to be pie-in-the-sky.   It turns out, he was spot on.    My experience is that he thinks big, paints a vision and delivers. He truly understands this market which is why when I decided to trust my brand and product to a partner, Healthways was the only choice for me.”– Dan Buettner, National Geographic Fellow and New York Times best selling author  “Ben Leedle is truly an inspirational and innovative leader. He routinely demonstrates the courage to pioneer new markets, such as well-being, and the leadership to commercialize new services that excite and delight customers.”– Joseph F. Coughlin, Ph.D., Director of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology AgeLab  “Ben sees something the rest of the industry hasn’t figured out—and he has positioned Healthways to be the market leader with a prohibitive advantage in the ability to utilize well-being measures to dramatically decrease healthcare costs and improve organizational performance.”– Jim Clifton, Chairman and CEO, Gallup  “Ben Leedle continues to be the most influential leader in the population health and well-being industry. He integrates the best in behavior change science within innovative intervention modalities that enhance the health, well-being, and performance of individuals, companies, and communities for domestic and foreign markets. Ben sets the standard to which others in the industry are compared.”– James Prochaska, Professor, University of Rhode Island and Founder, Pro-Change Behavior Systems, Inc.   “I turned down many opportunities in order to work with Healthways, for reasons which I can summarize in two words: Ben Leedle. He is the most visionary CEO in the health space that I have ever met, and I’m deeply proud to be working together.”– Dean Ornish, M.D., Professor, University of California, San FranciscoFounder, Preventive Medicine Research Institute and Clinical

 from HMSA CEO Michael Gold  We have been watching with interest and concern the public information regarding challenges to Healthways’ business model and management team by a small activist shareholder group. We certainly hope this does not threaten our longstanding relationship with and belief in Ben Leedle and the Healthways management team. As you know, we made our own investment in Healthways based on this belief and longstanding relationship. Each time I review progress with the team, I come away convinced that, were it not for the partnership we have and the understanding shown by Ben and his management team, the scale and quality of the program we now have would simply be impossible. We are seeing sharp drops in in-patient admissions, readmissions and emergency room visits and, while it is impossible to determine all the cause and effect relationships, it is apparent to us that the chronic care coordination program that we are carrying out with Healthways as our partner is having a material effect.My purpose in writing, as I said at the outset, is simply to convey the importance of our partnership and our concern that neither the course we are pursuing together nor the management team with whom we work (and depend on) will be diverted or derailed.  We are pleased to have had the opportunity to grow our relationship as Healthways has transformed from those early roots to a company that we now believe is in the best position to provide care management and wellness services to our more than 730,000 members.We have obviously read media reports regarding criticisms from one of your shareholders regarding Healthways’ strategy and management and that shareholder’s plan to initiate a proxy contest at your upcoming annual meeting. We are concerned that a change in strategic direction or management at Healthways would disrupt the strong, cohesive working relationship we have built over the last three years and the effective implementation of the services under our agreement.With the benefit of several years’ experience working closely with your management team to implement our contractual services, we believe even more strongly that this is the right team to execute on the objectives contemplated by our contract.  Customers Concerned About Disruption by North Tide

This complements a portfolio of well-being improvement solutions that HWAY leverages as a play on "population health.“ - Jefferies, 9 April 2014

Both the renewal with HFC and the new contract with SulAmérica are examples which suggest the growing global potential for HWAY.” - Dougherty & Company, 14 February 2014

 Copyright © 2014 Healthways  |  Healthways has engaged with North Tide Capital on numerous occasions to discuss the strategic direction of the CompanyEngagement included offer of access to Board’s outside financial advisor to discuss Company strategy and North Tide’s proposals – North Tide did not pursueTo avoid distraction and cost of proxy contest that we believe is not in the best interests of shareholders, Healthways proposed a good faith offer:5-person slate, including two qualified independent candidates to be nominated by North Tide and a third mutually agreed uponNorth Tide representative to serve on all standing Board committees and a new strategic review committeeExpand to 12-member BoardNorth Tide’s rejection of settlement causes us to question their true motives for pursuing a costly and disruptive proxy contest  *  Healthways Is Open to Constructive Dialogue   “North Tide refused Healthways' proposed board restructure, which would have helped both parties avoid a proxy fight. Activist investors have several tools to catalyze corporate change behind closed doors. One investor that goes activist will be scrutinized by other shareholders — and reporters and analysts — especially if it looks as if an activist is spoiling for, not avoiding, a proxy fight.” - Shelley DuBois, The Tennessean, 3/9/14

HEALTHWAYS FILES INVESTOR PRESENTATION
Details Strategic Transformation into #1 Independent Population Health Management Company
Highlights Value Proposition of Comprehensive Well-Being Solutions
Demonstrates Healthways' Progress Towards Sustained Profitable Growth
Details How North Tide Capital's Proposals and Nominees Would Derail Healthways Momentum

NASHVILLE, Tenn.  (May 8, 2014) – Healthways (NASDAQ: HWAY) (the "Company"), the largest independent global provider of well-being improvement solutions, today announced that it has filed an investor presentation with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") in connection with the Company's Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be held on June 24, 2014.  The full presentation can be viewed on the investor section of the Company's website.

The presentation details why Healthways stockholders should vote FOR the Company's four independent and highly qualified Board nominees to continue Healthways strong momentum toward sustained profitable growth.  The presentation includes details on:

Healthways' transformation into the #1 independent population health management company;
Healthways' approximately $50 billion total addressable opportunity in the attractive and growing population health management market;
Recent results and customer wins, underpinning Healthways' expectations of generating double-digit top-line growth while realizing significant operating leverage;
The significant, relevant and complementary skills sets of its independent Board; and
Healthways' strong belief that North Tide's analysis is deeply flawed and its nominees and proposals would derail Healthways' momentum and destroy shareholder value.

Included in the presentation are letters sent to Healthways from the CEOs of major customers, which are examples of customers who support the Company and are concerned about North Tide's agenda.  Copies of the letters can be found in the appendix of the presentation and excerpts are below:

HMSA BlueCross BlueShield of Hawaii – March 2014 (excerpt)

"We are pleased to have had the opportunity to grow our relationship as Healthways has transformed from those early roots to a company that we now believe is in the best position to provide care management and wellness services to our more than 730,000 members.

"We have obviously read media reports regarding criticisms from one of your shareholders regarding Healthways' strategy and management and that shareholder's plan to initiate a proxy contest at your upcoming annual meeting. We are concerned that a change in strategic direction or management at Healthways would disrupt the strong, cohesive working relationship we have built over the last three years and the effective implementation of the services under our agreement.

"With the benefit of several years' experience working closely with your management team to implement our contractual services, we believe even more strongly that this is the right team to execute on the objectives contemplated by our contract."

Michael A. Gold, President & CEO

CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield – March 2014 (excerpt)

"We have been watching with interest and concern the public information regarding challenges to Healthways' business model and management team by a small activist shareholder group. We certainly hope this does not threaten our longstanding relationship with and belief in Ben Leedle and the Healthways management team. As you know, we made our own investment in Healthways based on this belief and longstanding relationship.

"Each time I review progress with the team, I come away convinced that, were it not for the partnership we have and the understanding shown by Ben and his management team, the scale and quality of the program we now have would simply be impossible. We are seeing sharp drops in in-patient admissions, readmissions and emergency room visits and, while it is impossible to determine all the cause and effect relationships, it is apparent to us that the chronic care coordination program that we are carrying out with Healthways as our partner is having a material effect.

"My purpose in writing, as I said at the outset, is simply to convey the importance of our partnership and our concern that neither the course we are pursuing together nor the management team with whom we work (and depend on) will be diverted or derailed."

-
Chet Burrell, President & CEO

The Healthways Board of Directors, said, "We appreciate the stockholder and customer support we and our management team are receiving as we seek support for the election of our exceptional Board nominees.  With Healthways' transformation-related investments complete, we now have a scalable platform that is creating significant operating leverage as revenue grows.  The Company's recent results, including a third consecutive quarter of sequential revenue increases, underscore that we have the right strategy and strong momentum to support our expectation that the Company is progressing well towards sustained profitable growth.

"In contrast, we believe North Tide's short-sighted and ill-informed proposals are deeply flawed and electing their slate of nominees would derail the Company's momentum and destroy value.  Their nominees, only one of whom has served as an independent director on a public company board, lack relevant healthcare experience, including zero involvement at a value-based reimbursement program company like Healthways.  Their agenda of selling or shutting down vital company assets, such as SilverSneakers, and replacing our critical management team illustrate that they do not understand our business or industry."
