Date: Wednesday, February 4, 2015

Time: 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. EST

Duration: 60 minutes

On the heels of one of the busiest years in shareholder activism in Canada, we invite you to our annual video webinar highlighting the key developments of 2014 and what to expect for 2015. Our speakers will update you on everything you need to know to be current on shareholder activism in 60 minutes.

Walied Soliman and Orestes Pasparakis, co-chairs of Norton Rose Fulbright’s Special Situations Team, have led or defended more than 50 proxy battles, including the defenses of TELUS and Agrium Inc., and many of the most high profile shareholder disputes of 2014.

They will be joined by Wes Hall, CEO, Kingsdale Shareholder Services Inc. Wes is the leading proxy solicitor in Canada and was opposite Walied and Orestes on both TELUS and Agrium Inc.

Key topics include:
  • Activist investing: 2014 trends
  • New activist tools (dissent and appraisal rights, premium tenders and voting pills)
  • Warning signs for companies and issuer defences – new and old
  • Regulatory update
  • Looking ahead: hot button issues for 2015
