2014 Corporate Governance ForumMarch 11, 2014
New York, New York
On March 11, Mr. Morphy took part in a panel entitled, “Hybrid Boards and Conflicts in the Board Room” at Houlihan Lokey’s 2014 Corporate Governance Forum, held in New York. The panel discussed how to manage possible conflicts of interest in a board room, such as when a board member is also a controlling shareholder, or represents a PE/VC fund or creditor group. The panel explored the considerations directors should keep in mind when fulfilling fiduciary obligations to unaffiliated shareholders, as well as measures that boards can take to protect shareholders and themselves.
