Investment Approach

We Are Deep Value, Long-Term Oriented Active Investors

Our Competitive Advantage Stems From An Ability To Combine The Strengths And Reputations Of Institutional Partners And High Net Worth Investors With A Well-Aligned Active Management Strategy In Corporate Governance

Legion Partners is committed to executing a corporate governance, or activism, style of investing. This strategy generally incorporates deep value security selection, a long-term oriented ownership horizon and some form of active engagement or event-driven catalyst to ultimately realize additional value for the benefit and interests of longer-term shareholders. Activist strategies may involve obtaining representation on a portfolio company's board of directors, implementing various efforts to impact a portfolio company’s policies or strategic direction, or, in some cases, simply advocating specific business activities for the fundamental benefit of a portfolio company.

We believe that in certain circumstances poor governance and ineffective corporate leadership have led to considerable deterioration of long-term value. These instances include individual company situations, sectors and industries, and to an extent the broader capital markets. Appropriate corporate governance and proper oversight from long-term oriented equity owners have meaningful potential to protect value by lowering risk and, in fact, provide a major catalyst to reverse value destruction under select conditions.

Responsible activism has historically been able to unlock significant shareholder value and generate highly attractive returns for investors. Our private equity approach to investing in public markets is distinctly efficient and well aligned with the interests of long-term shareholders. In addition, our active involvement with and extensive due diligence on each target portfolio company helps to mitigate overall investment risk and creates a more beneficial risk profile for our investors.
