Wolosky Quoted in Business Insider on the Softer Side of Activism

September 17, 2015

Olshan Activist Chair Steve Wolosky was quoted by Business Insider in an article highlighting the softer side of activists as they target mid-sized companies, where they have a smaller percentage of the vote, and need to nurture support for their long-term interests. Steve notes that “There is also something to be said for the age-old axiom of 'catching more flies with honey than vinegar.’ He concludes that "You will get further with institutions if you focus on poor decisions by a director rather than personal attack."
