Nothing keeps executives awake at night more than the threat of activism.
An activist entering your stock can change the trajectory of the company you have worked diligently to grow, not to mention the course of your career. Remember that activists prey on vulnerabilities. Keeping them at bay requires an honest assessment of potential issues along with a fact-based plan for addressing areas of concern through strategic communications with shareholders and the media.
How can activist shareholding make a difference?
Shareholder activism takes various forms. The ultimate goal typically is to boost the stock price or influence the company’s strategy or behavior. To get to that goal, activists often try to rally fellow stakeholders, seek media attention, or create a negative spin about the management team to support a point that opposes the company view. Even minority shareholders can create enough chaos to impact the stock price or the way a company operates. That makes having a shareholder activism defense plan critical.
