Today we are sharing our list of the 10 worst things to do when engaging with an activist shareholder. Shareholder activism is a concern for almost all public companies, with high stakes during every shareholder interaction. While there’s no one right way to react to an inquiry from an activist, there are a lot of ways to get it wrong. Our illustrated handbook highlights ten of the worst things you could do, and offers our perspective on how to think about your response differently so that you get a better business outcome.
Should you keep activist investors at arm’s length, or start a conversation? When they have criticisms, should you hit back at everything in real time? What do other investors respond to, and what turns them off? We address these and other questions in “The 10 Worst Things to Do When an Activist Comes Knocking (and what to do instead)”.
