They were the focus of shareholder activism in 2018, a year that reached near record levels for activist campaigns and behind the scenes private engagement.
In this article, Davies covers proxy contest trends and developments in Canada, identifying the key industries likely to be the subject of heightened levels of activism in 2019, including the mining sector and the growing cannabis industry. Also provided is an update on the continued scrutiny of soliciting dealer fees (or “vote buying”) in Canadian proxy contests; consider the implications of ISS proxy contest guidelines on majority and minority slate campaigns; examine developments in environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues relevant to activism; and spotlight “withhold” campaigns as a tool for “activism lite.”
