Activist short sellers are growing more active in Canada’s capital markets, which have become a global hotspot for activist short selling. One well-timed tweet from a short seller can quickly wipe out substantial amounts of a stock’s value. Though issuers have become used to activism on the long side, activists are employing aggressive and novel short strategies—raising new challenges for Canadian public companies. Join Orestes Pasparakis and Walied Soliman, Co-Chairs of Norton Rose Fulbright Canada’s Special Situations Team, for a webinar on activist short selling and how respond to it. We will discuss global trends in activist short selling and why Canada has attracted so much of this activity. We will also discuss what makes a company vulnerable to an activist short play, and what to expect when an attack occurs. We will conclude with insights on how to respond to an activist short attack, drawn from our recent experiences. This course is essential viewing for CEOs, Board Chairs, and General Counsels of Canadian public companies, as well as their legal and PR advisors.
