Disney Shareholder Blackwells Capital Blasts Rival Nelson Peltz For Failing To Come Up With “A Single Strategic Idea That Would Benefit Shareholders”

Blackwells Capital, a Disney shareholder with plenty of opinions about who should sit on the company’s board of directors, blasted the rival Trian Group for its own board maneuvering.

In a press release Monday, Blackwells Chief Investment Officer Jason Aintabi said Trian co-founder Nelson Peltz has come up short in terms of suggesting ways for the media giant to right its ship. Trian, which owns about $3 billion in Disney stock, last week formally initiated a proxy war with Disney by nominating Peltz and former Disney CFO Jay Rasulo to the board. The firm plans to solicit support from a shareholder base that it believes has grown restless over the company’s lackluster stock performance.
