Table: How ISS Weighed in on the Big Battles


HEWLETT-PACKARD

Backed HP's plan to buy Compaq over the objections of board member Walter Hewlett. The merger was approved due in part to ISS's decision and CEO Carly Fiorina's lobbying.

WILLAMETTE INDUSTRIES

Sided with Weyerhaeuser in its year-long, and ultimately successful, hostile bid for rival Willamette.

COMPUTER ASSOCIATES

Initially supported management against dissident Sam Wyly, who accused CA of questionable accounting and wanted control of the board. ISS later switched sides when Wyly's slate shrank to four board seats. CA prevailed, though it has followed some of ISS's recommendations.

HERCULES

Opposed the successful bid by businessman Samuel J. Heyman for four board seats. Heyman accused the board of incompetence and demanded a say in the planned sale of Hercules.
