Is the age of the settlement over?

Compared to previous years, how difficult is it for activist investors to reach settlements with management teams?

Proxy fights have increasingly become just one of many tactics used by activist funds. Growing acceptance of the influence and value of activism has seen companies work with activists to the benefit of all shareholders, reflected beyond all else in the rise of settlement agreements.

Activist Insight data suggests that between 2013 and 2015, companies became much more willing to add activist nominees to their boards without a public fight. The time taken to broker such deals fell from 74 days to 56 days over that period. In 2016, that figure rose for the first time on record to 69 days, suggesting a pullback that may have to do with several well-publicized activist situations that have gone wrong, or indications from some institutional investors that they may be less willing to support activists in the future.
