2019 Proxy Season Preview (April 2019)

With the 2019 proxy season now underway, several trends are emerging in shareholder campaigns:

  • Environmental and social (E&S) topics will once again dominate the shareholder proposal landscape.
  • Withdrawals could approach last year’s record. In 2018, nearly half of E&S resolutions were withdrawn as a result of productive engagements, a trend that is likely to continue.
  • New players are joining the E&S mix.  The growing momentum of E&S campaigns is attracting new proponents.
  • No-action challenges are usurping a number of new and recurring campaigns.


Highlights of some of the key issues facing companies and investors in the upcoming months are discussed in more detail in our April 2019 newsletter, which may be downloaded from the link below:
