Presented by

IR Magazine, Corporate Secretary & FGS Global

About this talk

Companies will face increased pressure heading into this year’s proxy season. The macro landscape, combined with the rise in demands from a diverse set of stakeholders, creates an environment ripe for activism. If predictions are correct, the expanding universe of shareholder activists, changing activist strategies and the impact of new universal proxy rules could result in increased scrutiny for public companies. Even an unsuccessful activist campaign can be time-consuming and damaging to a company’s reputation. In this webinar we explore the evolution of activism and how to prepare your defense: • Understand how activists have evolved and learn about the key factors shaping activism in 2023 • Hear predictions about the outlook for single-issue activist campaigns and their impact on companies • Prepare your defense by understanding how to communicate with both activists and other influential stakeholders during a contested campaign IR Magazine and Corporate Secretary have partnered with FGS Global to deliver you this webinar.
