Friend or Foe? A Special Report on Activist Investors

Take a look at the evolving role of activism in M&A worldwide, with expert guidance in “The Rebirth of Investor Activism: From Raiders to Rescuers, a New Generation.”

Activist investing is an increasingly powerful force in corporate governance in America, with a reputation that has gone from largely reviled as “barbarians at the gate” in the 1980s to being revered today. This special report, which is part of The Best Practices of the Best Dealmakers series, considers the history of investor activism and its current trajectory worldwide. It also analyzes its positive and negative impacts on a company’s overall success. Finally, you’ll hear from a two-man activist investor team with decades of experience, discussing their philosophy, challenges and other aspects of their work.

What’s covered:

  • Roundup of the results for the 2014 Schulte/Mergermarket Shareholder Activism Insight survey
  • Data on companies that are, counterintuitively, the biggest targets of investor activism
