Webinar: Shareholder Activism, Takeover Defense and Poison Pills Amidst Covid-19

Start Date: 6/1/2020 11:30 AM EDT
End Date: 6/1/2020 12:15 PM EDT


The pandemic has upended much of economic life, at least for the moment, including the landscape for shareholder activism. In this discussion, Josh Black of Activist Insight will provide an overview of impacts of volatile markets on shareholder activism. Ken Bertsch and Lucy Nussbaum of CII will discuss with Josh the recent wave shareholder rights plans (poison pills). Should shareholders be concerned? What is the prognosis for activism going forward?
