    1. Does Bristol-Myers Have a Plan B if Activists Scuttle its Celgene Buy?

      Does Bristol-Myers Have a Plan B if Activists Scuttle its Celgene Buy?

      What’s Bristol-Myers Squibb’s Plan B if its Celgene deal falls through? BMS won’t say whether it has one at all. And the company may be more likely to need a backup plan than some industry-watchers think.

      Shareholder activism is discovering new targets. Until recently, this form of activism was confined to the U.S. Not uncommon since the 1920s, it caught fire in the 1980s, with the likes of Carl Icahn striking fear into the hearts of public companies.

      An Early Look at 2019 US Shareholder Proposals

      In the U.S., shareholder proposal filings have historically played an important role in advancing corporate governance and in highlighting key risks related to environmental and social issues. Some of the major shifts in governance practices during the past two decades—including the annual elections of directors, the adoption of majority vote standard for director elections, and the adoption of proxy access among large firms—were largely prompted by shareholder resolution campaigns.

      Whistleblowers Promise to Make 2019 a Year of Reckoning in the Workplace

      If 2018 was the year of truth-telling, 2019 will be the year of reckoning. We closed out 2018 with the U.S. workplace situated squarely in the eye of a storm, a time of relative calm after the first torrent and ahead of the inevitable next wave. #MeToo shed light on a workplace full of predation, emboldening victims to finally speak out with less fear of reprisal because they were sheltered, in part, by the numbers. In the light, the details of assaults were as heartbreaking as their scale...

      Activist Investors Force Change In The Oil Industry
