Sullivan & Cromwell present the S&C Critical Insights podcast. Topics include M&A trends across industries, corporate governance including shareholder activism, litigation, arbitration, products liability, and more.
In this episode of S&C’s Critical Insights podcast series, Melissa Sawyer, M&A partner and co-head of the Firm’s Corporate Governance & Activism Practice, discusses the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on shareholder meetings for U.S. issuers during the 2020 proxy season, when meetings were largely virtual for the first time. Melissa provides an overview of how companies and stakeholders have reacted to the shift. She also looks ahead to how the evolving expectations of investors might affect the format of meetings in 2021.
For more information on this topic, listen to Melissa’s previous podcast on earlier developments in legal requirements for the implementation of virtual shareholder meetings.
