In Search of Value: Shareholders, Activists and the Board

March 16, 2017
Skadden, Arps - Palo Alto
525 University Ave, 14th floor
Palo Alto, CA

The quickening pace of activist settlements shows how dissident shareholders are reshaping the way chief executives manage their businesses and their boardrooms. In 2015, a record-setting number of activist campaigns were announced against U.S. companies, and all businesses in all industries are fair game.

This half-day program will provide a critical and balanced analysis of shareholder activism from different perspectives. Issuers, activists, investors and advisors will participate in a collective discussion on engagement, unlocking value and influencing positive long-term outcomes.

Participants will gain a better understanding of:

  • The new activist landscape, including the surge of hedge fund activism actively trying to shake up companies
  • Potential financial and governance vulnerabilities that boards should address to minimize exposure to activist investors
  • Effective tactics to engage with activists and resolve situations before they become a proxy contest
  • Successful communication and engagement strategies that help build a strong defense

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to share experiences and exchange new ideas with other board members and executives to help your board prepare for and stay ahead of an activist attack.
