On July 6, Frank Aquila was quoted in a Bloomberg Big Law Business article titled “More Companies Cite Activism as a Risk in Financial Disclosures.” The article outlined the increase in public companies listing shareholder activism as a risk factor in SEC filings, demonstrating a growing awareness among public company board members of the threat of activism. An effect of that awareness is that boards are “engaging more with shareholders, they're thinking about shareholder activism more,” Frank said.
