13D Filing: Legion Partners Asset Management Lands Board Seat at Foster L B Co (FSTR)

There may be some debate as to whether activist shareholders are good for the long-term health of companies, but there is no debating their results. In 2012, 2013, and 2014, activist investment strategies returned 9.3%, 19.2%, and 8.5% respectively per year. While new activist positions may not be moving the needle quite as much as they once were, the market still values activist involvement in companies. In this article, we reveal one of the latest activist filings, issued by Legion Partners Asset Management LLC, disclosing the latest information regarding the activist’s position in L.B. Foster Company (NASDAQ:FSTR). The filing shows ownership of 986,136 shares and reveals that Legion Partners’ Bradley S. Vizi has landed a seat on the company’s Board.
