米国における投資家のプレッシャーと企業の対応~Siegelの場合

Siebel directors under fire

For many companies, annual shareholder meetings typically are dull affairs. But for Siebel Systems Inc., its gathering June 8 may represent no less than a referendum on the software company's future.

Under mounting pressure to distribute some of its $2.2 billion in cash to shareholders or contemplate a sale, the embattled San Mateo, Calif., vendor of customer management software can expect a hostile crowd at the gathering in San Francisco.

Siebel shareholders Jana Partners LLC, a San Francisco fund with $4 billion under management, and Providence Capital Inc., a New York investment firm, have threatened to withhold their votes for Tom Siebel and management's other directors. Providence Capital president Herbert Denton was unavailable for comment, but he previously called Siebel a "decaying asset" and in April staged a meeting of shareholders to discuss strategic alternatives for the company.
