“Activist Investor”



Activist investors are aggressively pursuing companies to tighten their operations in ways they believe will improve shareholder value, and sometimes with the underlying intent of removing management or selling the company. Minnesota-based companies need to protect themselves and understand what can happen if they are pursued. Here to discuss activist investors are two shareholders from Leonard, Street and Deinard's public companies practice group, Steve Quinlivan, who's spent his 18-year career representing public companies in Minnesota as well as New York, Hong Kong and London; and Jill Radloff, who has also focused on representing public companies in the areas of mergers and acquisitions, SEC filings and activist investor issues.
