Among the various ways to effect a change in corporate control in North America, proxy contests provide solicitors with their greatest and most complex challenges. Unlike an unsolicited tender offer, which is evaluated largely on financial terms – the size and structure of the bid – proxy contests are decided by the quality of communications to shareholders, by how well we devise and disseminate arguments for changing or defending against a change in control.
Whether facing a shareholder activism threatening situation or proposing a change to the targeted board, our team of strategic advisors will be an integral component of your think tank group. Whether working with management or dissidents, we will help pave the road to the final success by providing an unparallel level of services, including in-depth shareholder analysis, review of governance and compensation issues, advice to win over proxy advisors and retail shareholders, and call campaign strategies/support.
