-Shareholder Activism-

Shareholder activism represents a range of activities by a publicly-traded company's shareholder(s) which seek some change in strategy, financial structure, management or board within the corporation. Publicly traded companies are prone of being victims of shareholder activism no matter its size, market cap, industry or country of operations. Its success in the United States is spreading throughout other regions, including Latin America.

Remember, a crisis is any situation that disrupts a company's operations and undermines the loyalty of its customer base or harms its financial performance. Therefore, shareholder activism represents a significant risk to an enterprise.
i-advize is dedicated to help clients develop and enhance its crisis communication capabilities, and maximize the limited available time when a crisis occurs. The purpose is not only to determine what to say, and to whom - but also, to ensure that those communications are integrated with the company's overall goals.
