April and May were characterized by corporate earnings announcements, proxy votes and an expected increase in executive turnover. Executive turnover typically increases during earnings season. April and May's key turnover statistics temporarily staunched the slowing trend in C-level turnover that first appeared in the last quarter of 06' and continued throughout the first quarter of 07'. Both April and May's key turnover totals came reasonably close to matching the record totals registered in the same period a year ago and were much higher than the totals registered in the first three months of 2007.

CHANGE DETAILS

April's overall C-level turnover declined 2% from the 06' total for April and Board of Director Changes, which was very high for the month due to the proxy season, declined 8% over the same month in April 06'. CEO turnover on the other hand, increased 2% for April 07' over the same month in 06' while CFO turnover jumped 18% over the 2006 total for April. May 07's totals were nearly a reverse of the April totals when compared to the same month in 2006. Overall C-level turnover was virtually the same as the equivalent period in 06'. The May 07' grand total was actually 1% greater than the record total registered in May 06. May 07's CEO and CFO turnover totals both registered an appreciable decline from the record totals registered in May 06'. May 07's CEO turnover declined 12% and CFO turnover declined 15%, respectively. Board of Director changes was extremely high in May 07' but that was also the case in 06'. Board of director changes in May declined 5% from May 06's record total.

Liberum expects the overall level of management change to continue to remain high, yet show continuing signs of moderation as we move through the remainder of the spring business season and into the slower summer months, particularly at the top levels of corporate management. Outlined below is a breakdown of the key management change totals for May 2007. We have also included a larger than usual list of companies that experienced CEO changes during May for which investors might wish to re-examine for investment possibilities.

WHY FOLLOW THIS STUFF?

Investors need to diligently monitor key management changes. Certain management changes should be viewed as a "special situation" that can have a direct and major impact on a company's performance and share price.
