About Our Group

The Investor Group of local and foreign shareholders includes City of London Investment Management, Whitebox Advisors and other long-term investors.

The Group collectively owns more than 1% of Samsung C&T's outstanding common shares. Each member of the Group initially invested in Samsung C&T because of its exceptionally valuable portfolio of assets that include strategic stakes in key Samsung group affiliates and diverse business operations.

Over the years, each member has sought to engage privately with Samsung C&T’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) and representatives of the management team in a constructive manner to address its long-term share price underperformance and persistent discount to the value of its underlying assets. CLIM and Whitebox, in particular, have engaged with Samsung C&T since their respective initial investments in 2017. However, suggestions have repeatedly been disregarded, even in the face of growing shareholder concern.
