Alan Dye on “Fix-It” Shareholder Proposals

As I blogged a few weeks ago, “fix it” shareholder proposals are “hot” – & confusing. In this 17-minute podcast, Alan Dye discusses this type of shareholder proposal, including:

– What are “fix-it” shareholder proposals?
– How has Corp Fin processed no-action requests related to these proposals?
– Why are people so confused about why some no-action requests were granted – and some weren’t?

This podcast is also posted as part of my “Big Legal Minds” podcast series. Remember that these podcasts are also available on iTunes or Google Play (use the “My Podcasts” app on your iPhone and search for “Big Legal Minds”; you can subscribe to the feed so that any new podcast automatically downloads)…
