Activist investor singing a different song with new deal

Eric Rosenfeld is best known in Canada as an activist shareholder – and one who sings to boot.

He has taken stakes in companies such as Spar Aerospace Corp. and Geac Computer Corp., and tried to shake things up. And he’s done it while belting out ditties on shareholder rights, set to familiar show tunes. (Any one for a round of “Get me to the vote on time?”)
