APR 17, 2009
8:45 AM - 3:00 PM
REGISTRATION DEADLINE EXTENDED to 4.16.09
Symposium speakers will examine the question of private vs. public ownership -- if and how it affects corporations, shareholders, and markets.
The Symposium will address a wide range of issues in the corporate and securities field, including: Shareholder voting, SEC proxy rules on shareholder voting and shareholder proposals; the role of proxy advisory services; the validity of shareholder initiatives in corporate governance; the role of hedge funds and sovereign wealth funds in corporate governance; the role of tender offers and defenses against tender offers (including staggered boards and poison pills); the propriety of current levels of executive compensation, the effectiveness of various elements of executive compensation as appropriate incentives, the role of shareholders in approving executive compensation; and the effects of devices that separate voting rights from the economic interests of common stock ownership.
