With proxy season fast approaching at a time of increased shareholder activism, companies and shareholders should understand what leads to success at a contested shareholders meeting. An expert panel will discuss a broad range of strategic and tactical factors that should be considered from a legal, business, technical and public relations perspective.
Using their recent success in the RX Exploration Inc. proxy contest as a case study, the panel will examine each stage of a proxy contest ranging, from planning and initiation, to the heat of the battle to the shareholder meeting itself.
Activist shareholders, board members, company management, general counsel and advisors will receive practical advice on how to properly plan for and achieve their objectives at shareholder meetings.
