Facing the Market: The Latest on Shareholder Activism

In today's economy, public companies find themselves in uncharted territory. Companies are facing intense economic pressures on their business, stock prices are reaching historic lows and the shareholders of many companies, facing liquidity challenges of their own, are pressuring directors to focus on short-term returns. Proxy contests and shareholder activism are at an all-time high. With the SEC's elimination of broker discretionary voting and its proposed proxy access rules, public companies are likely to face even greater challenges in 2010. Featuring a panel of experts that offer insights from both company and insurgent sides of the table, please join us for a practical and pragmatic discussion of this new environment and how it's changing traditional corporate governance. Speakers will include Joe Johnson, Stuart Cable, Barrett Golden of Joele Frank, Wilkinson Brimmer Katcher and Mark Harnett of MacKenzie Partners.
