FY 2020 Global Activism Review 587 new activist campaigns were launched in 2020, involving activist stakes worth 86 billion, versus 601campaigns in 2019 involving 80 billion, representing a 2.3% decrease in the number of campaigns but 7%increase in value of activist stakes involved. The increase in stake value was due solely to TCI FundManagement's environmental-related proposals at eight companies where it owned stakes worth 21 billion. The coronavirus pandemic most clearly manifested itself in the drop-off of large-cap campaigns, but small-capactivity remained strong. 1b campaigns were down 15% from 226 to 192 in 2020, while 1b campaignswere up 5% from 375 to 395. Activism has returned to normal volume after the spring and summer lull, and Q4showed 8% year-on-year growth in total campaigns, and 21% growth in 1b campaigns (from 52 to 63). There were 108 proxy fights in 2020, down 12% from 2019. Fewer fights went to a vote: 29 in 2020 vs 42 lastyear; and 36% of fights this year were settled, up from 26%.New Campaigns by CountryCountry20202019 % YoY Δ323327(1%)Japan5973(19%)Canada524321%United 12771%610(40%)United StatesSwitzerlandStatisticsTop New Campaigns in 2020 by Market CapFY 2020 FY 2019 % YoY ΔNew Campaigns by SectorNew Campaigns587601(2.3%)DateTargetStake Value ( b) 86 806.7%2020-11-24Alphabet Inc 1b market cap192226(15.0%)2020-10-07Walt Disney Co 219 Third Point LLCConsumer Discretionary76104(27%)2020-09-21Comcast Corp 207 Trian Fund ManagementIndustrials7380(9%)2020-12-29Intel Corp 193 Third Point LLCFinancials724271%2020-12-06Exxon Mobil 176 Engine No 1, DE Shaw, cations534810%#Health Care5063(21%)Investment Fund413421%Real Estate362171%Top Company AdvisersFinancialGoldman SachsLegalBy Campaign CountInnisfree M&AActivist (by Count)#Elliott Management16 8.0Bulldog Investors15 0.01Saba Capital MgmtTop Activist AdvisersFinancialSpotlight AdvisorsLegalOlshanIR/PRGasthalter & CoProxy Solicitor 1,171 TCI Fund Management (AGM proposal)Sidley AustinJoele FrankIR/PRProxy SolicitorMarket Cap b Activist(s)Okapi PartnersTop Activists of 2020Stake bBy Stake ValueActivist (by Stake)TCI Fund MgmtStake b 22.09Elliott Management 8.016Sector14 0.4Third Point LLC 3.33Energy3545(22%)9 22.0ValueAct Capital 2.84Consumer Staples1821(14%)Starboard Value LP6 1.2Effissimo Capital 1.92UtilitiesList includes only campaigns by investors for whom activism is a core or secondary strategyTotal Campaigns2020 # Campaigns (l)2019 Stake Value b (r)2020 Stake Value b (r)Activist Win 35.6 26.2 21.7 18.6171161147154 20b 17.9 12.450 11.5140118 10b143 0bQ2Q3850%601(2.3%)Q4202020192020 % 2019 %162214.8%17.9%Management %Withdrawn112710.2%22.0%No Follow Up211019.4%8.1%231.9%2.4%36.1%26.0%26.9%34.1%Sold Before MeetingSettled1540Q1OutcomeActivist Stake Value# New Campaigns2019 # Campaigns (l) 30b 22.012587FY 2020 Proxy Fight Outcomes 40b1501002019 % YoY ΔTCI Fund Management2020 Activist Campaign Volume by Quarter vs 2019200Source: BI ACT GO 2020Global Activism Review FY 2020Contact:[email protected] Proxy FightsTotal Went Distance393210812329423
