PJSC CEO Marc S. Cooper will participate in the panel discussion "M&A at the Board Level: Driving Shareholder Value" hosted by The Deal on Thursday, May 18, 2017 at 1pmET. This is a live webcast, which can be viewed by registering online.

More and more M&A is being driven by activists seeking strategic reviews of companies they target. Among the first steps activists take is to campaign for the ability to replace directors they see as over-tenured or too close to management. Activists are also increasingly demanding strategic board panels, which critics say create a bias for action, including a sale of the business.

Mr. Cooper will be joined by James A. Mitarotonda, Chairman of the Board, President, CEO, Barington Capital Group and Derek Zaba, Partner, CamberView Partners. This expert roundtable will address a range of questions that arise from the challenging circumstances in which these demands often place management and board.
