2018 saw the need for even the largest stakeholders to respond to activists, even if the agitator held a significantly smaller stake. Third Point’s campaign against Campbell Soup is an example of how the most entrenched stakeholders need to listen to activists even if they own a relatively small stake. It also points to the willingness of activists to target larger companies. Settlements were a big focus last year, following on the heels of “scorched earth” campaigns in 2017 such as Buffalo Wild Wings and Arconic. It is better for parties to prepare and work toward a settlement than have high-profile proxy battles.

This report breaks down last year’s data across new campaigns, settlements, campaign size, sectors, demands, and activist activity.
