The billionaire activist investor who catalyzed the recent transformation of Air Products has unloaded his firm’s stake in the Trexlertown-based industrial gas company. William Ackman of Pershing Square Capital Management told investors in a letter Wednesday that he had sold the hedge fund’s remaining shares in Air Products. Ackman bought a nearly 10 percent stake for more than $2 billion in the summer of 2013.
The man who has led a transformation of Air Products over the past three years expects to remain at the helm for five more. Air Products’ board of directors announced Tuesday that it entered an amended employment agreement with Air Products CEO Seifi Ghasemi extending through Sept. 30, 2022. Ghasemi was one of three directors appointed in 2013 to Air Products’ board shortly after activist investor William Ackman’s Pershing Square hedge fund acquired a 10 percent stake in the company.
On sunny days, light now breaches the arched windows of the old Neuweiler Brewery bottling house in Allentown. Bricked up for at least a half century, the recently opened windows on the third floor offer outward views of the city’s waterfront. Turn around, and vaulted ceilings loom over steel beams and an expanse of newly cleared space. The space’s possibilities, vague and formless for so long, have been illuminated.
Huh? "By beginning development of a missile banned under the treaty, Washington is hoping to show Moscow the kinds of new American weapons Russia’s armed forces will face if they don’t stop violating the INF." https://t.co/ILdEHI38G3
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
