On Wednesday, November 5, FCD will present another important topic.

David Robbins, partner at Bingham McCutchen, will moderate a panel with Tom Germinario, Senior Vice President at proxy solicitor DF King & Co.; Michael McConnell, chairman and acting CEO of Spark Networks, and former head of Shamrock Activist Value Fund; and Michael Sitrick, CEO of strategic communications firm, Sitrick and Company. All four experts bring a unique perspective to the shareholder activism conversation.

Our panelists will focus on the following:

  • Benefits, risks and techniques for effective engagement with stockholders, including activist investors
  • Proactive steps the Board should take to reduce the likelihood of surprise engagement with an activist
  • Options for effectively dealing with an activist pounding at the corporate door

Don’t miss this critical conversation.
