Activism hits the UK - Is your Boardroom ready?

Activism hits the UK - Is your Boardroom ready?


Date: 17 April 2018

Venue: Hogan Lovells International LLP, Atlantic House, London, EC1A 2FG


NEDA, Hogan Lovells & Boudicca are delighted to announce a joint breakfast event, being hosted on 17th April 2018.

Why attend the briefing?
 
Activist investors, a well-established feature of the US investment scene, are now increasingly at large in the UK. By applying well-rehearsed routines, activists can quickly connect with major investors as well as proxy advisors to increase their influence and press for change. 
 
By contrast, most company boards would likely be caught completely off guard by an activist approach or campaign. Few boards have the experience necessary to handle such situations effectively, and non-executive directors need to better understand the challenges presented if boards are to avoid events unfolding against them. 
 
What you will learn
 
Hogan Lovells partner Jonathan Baird will outline the reasons why activism has become more prevalent in the UK and why this trend is expected to continue. 
 
Sheryl Cuisa, Managing Director of Boudicca Proxy Consultants, will describe how her firm advises boards so they might avoid the attention of activists but, where necessary, will be much better prepared to defend their positions.
 
We will also be joined by a speaker from the NED community who will share their experience of being on a board targeted by activists.
 
We look forward to you joining us for what promises to be an incisive exploration of a key issue for the non-executive community.
