Shareholder activism has replaced the hostile takeover as the greatest threat to public companies. In 2017 alone, there were over 250 reported activism campaigns and over 80 proxy fights. Is your company prepared to:
  • Manage a call from Carl Icahn, Elliott, Pershing Square or Starboard Value? Or from one of the other 200+ activist hedge funds?
  • Respond to a public letter demanding that the board of directors give up board seats or sell the company?
  • Counteract a public short report attacking your company?
  • Win a proxy fight?
Learn how you can protect your company from a costly attack in this “Shareholder Activism Bootcamp”.

Learning Objectives:
  • Gain an introduction to shareholder activism
