The importance of recognizing and predicting activist shareholders cuts to the heart of investor relationships, and it is essential that IROs stay not only up to date on the latest activism trends but also steps ahead of potential activists in their midst.

Talking to leading IROs, lawyers, advisers and activists, this best practice report looks at how companies are adjusting their stock surveillance, vulnerability assessments, response plans and engagement tactics to the goals of the modern activist. IR Magazine offers IROs an eye to the future as we look at the potential impact of the universal proxy card and proposed 13D regulation.

The key benefits an IRO will get from reading the report:

  • Evaluate your company’s risks and susceptibilities
  • Consider external advisers and your ‘poison pill’
  • Identify the challenges firms face with surveillance
  • Consider your media, earnings and proxy positions
  • Deal with SEC changes and universal proxy
