“Liquor Stores, PointNorth ready for battle” by Andrew Willis, Global and Mail.

The Globe and Mail quotes Fasken Martineau in an article regarding the firm’s tracking of previous proxy battles and the logistics on the upcoming proxy battle between Liquor Stores and PointNorth.

 

Law firm Fasken Martineau tracks these showdowns and said in a recent report that there were seven proxy battles in 2016, the lowest level of activity in 10 years, and part of a steady drop from a peak of 23 contests in 2012.

 

Fasken lawyers said there were an additional 16 publicly disclosed dissident shareholder campaigns last year against Canadian companies, and that the number of proxy contests decline because “the activist achieved some or all of its objectives as part of a settlement.”
