IHS (video) – Finding value in the energy industry boardroom

Shareholder activism in the energy industry continues to rise, but the impact on company returns is often short-lived once activists exit their temporary ownership positions.

In a video interview filmed on site at the 2015 CERAWeek conference in Houston with IHS’ Atul Arya, Goodman discussed a typical review, which provides recommendations on the structure, roles and responsibilities, as well as behaviors of each of the board members, and can help improve a board’s decisions around strategic scenarios, capital allocation, and CEO performance and succession.
