      S&P 1500 Pay-for-Performance Update: Strong Financials, Negative Shareholder Returns

      Despite strong full-year 2018 financial results, shareholder returns were dampened by investor skepticism and potential headwinds heading into 2019. This trend is no surprise given our observations through the third quarter (see “S&P 1500 pay-for-performance update: Third quarter results beg the question, “Will 2018 be the high water mark for incentive payouts?” Executive Pay Matters, December 17, 2018)...

    4. 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. As Wolfe Research’s Tim Anderson pointed out in a note to clients, the company has so far skirted questions about how it would proceed without the $74 billion takeout, saying only that “their focus is on getting the Celgene deal done.” “They gave no insights on the path forward under this alternative scenario,” Anderson wrote, noting that if the deal ...

      Shareholder Activism Pivots To Gender

      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.
