Guzov, LLC’s International Counsel’s Corporate Corner – Corporate Shareholder Activism


Shareholder activists “seek to engage and present well-thought out alternative courses of action … they have to persuade and win the votes and confidence of a majority of fellow shareholders and institutional investors in order to have any strategic impact.”

The second installment of Guzov, LLC’s Ami de Chapeaurouge’s study on shareholder activism is now available in the Hong Kong LawyerThis series examines the frequency of local and international active investments in Hong Kong through a study of 50 different activist campaigns from 2003 to 2015, concluding that these activists make a “significant and quantifiable long-term value” to Hong Kong’s securities market. Furthermore, de Chapeaurouge discusses the role of passive investors in Hong Kong, which are notably large companies such as BlackRock, and the effective methods used by shareholder activists in Hong Kong’s public companies.

This article is the second of three installments. The next installment will be available soon.
