Trian, which owns about $3.3 billion of P&G stock, said P&G has underperformed relative to its peers and the S&P 500 over the past decade, saying that total shareholder return was less than half that of its peers and has been in the bottom quartile over recent time frames.
However, those efforts have failed to boost the company's stock much beyond the level where it traded at the beginning of this year. With a market cap of $222 billion, Peltz's campaign marks the biggest proxy battle in corporate history based on market size, WSJ noted.
Trian said in the filing it was launching the proxy fight because of P&G's continuing underperformance and the lack of tangible evidence that the company had embraced initiatives discussed at various meetings between the parties. The investor also said that P&G has an overly complex organizational structure and a slow moving and insular culture.
