What is a proxy contest?
The term “Proxy Contest” refers to a shareholder’s challenge to an action or the control of corporate management accomplished through the solicitation of proxies from other shareholders or stakeholders with effective power. This is also called “proxy fight” or “proxy battle”.
There could be a scenario emerging whereby a powerful group of shareholders in a company will team up and will try to oppose the existing management or vote out the current board of directors. This is a powerplay between the shareholders and corporate management over the control of the company or organization. Sometimes this is part of a hostile takeover.
In case of such a proxy contest occurring, it might need to be investigated why for example shareholders are unsatisfied with the current management, corporate governance, or business decisions.
