(Reuters) – Allergan Plc plans to elect an independent board chairman, starting with the next leadership transition, the Botox maker said on Friday, as the drugmaker responds to calls from hedge fund Appaloosa LP to separate the roles of chairman and chief executive officer.

Appaloosa, led by billionaire David Tepper, has been pressing Allergan since last year to separate the roles, but the company has said it would do so only when the person who now holds the positions is replaced.

Brent Saunders currently holds the roles, and Allergan has said implementing Appaloosa’s recommendations would be “highly disruptive” to the company’s operations and impact his ability to continue to execute its current strategy.

Allergan also said https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1578845/000119312519083731/d633114d8k.htm in a regulatory filing on Friday that it had formed a committee to oversee mergers, acquisitions, divestitures and other transactions.

The company also named Thomas Freyman as the chair of the compensation committee, replacing Catherine Klema, who will not be standing for re-election.

A spokesman for Tepper did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The company in February had named former CEO of drugmaker Celgene, Robert Hugin, as a director, saying the appointment reflected its commitment to “active board refreshment”.

Raising money is one of the greatest challenges startup ownersface as they launch into a life of entrepreneurship. In many cases, startup owners do not know where to turn to obtain funding for their budding businesses. Fortunately, there are many avenues for startup owners who need to raise operating capital. Gabriel Patterson, of Winnipeg, has over two decades of experience in investment banking, and currently runs his own investment firm, Bethmann Lombard Bancorp, in Toronto. Below, he lists 10 great ways to secure funding for your startup. 1) Start close to home with family and friends.  The most common source of capital for startups is friends and family members. If your family and friends are also your investors, make sure that they are aware of the financial risk they are taking. It is also a good idea to link their investment money to your cash flow. These steps can help avoid the potential for damaged relationships if your startup fails to deliver projected results. 2) Contact your local small business administration (SBA).  Your local small business administration is a great resource for entrepreneurs. One of the benefits of working with your SBA is access to their lender matching programs that can connect you with SBA-approved lenders who are a good fit for your business. Additionally, most local SBAs offer loan programs and grants that can give your new business a welcome cash infusion. 3) Connect with potential investors on social media sites.  Social networking sites for entrepreneurs are great channels for connecting with prospective investors in the United States and internationally. You can start by ensuring your LinkedIn profile is updated and reflective of your startup plans. Additionally, you can explore sites such as Meetup, Plaxo, EFactor, and Startup nation that will foster connections with potential investors. 4) Tap into your own resources.  Some new startup owners decide that they wish to self-fund their business by using a modest amount of cash along with the revenue that their business generates. The practice of using personal finances or revenue to fund a business is commonly referred to as bootstrapping. Bootstrapping is typically most effective if startup owners attempt to lower their operating costs by adopting a lean operating strategy and ensuring that they are offering well-validated products prior to officially launching their startup. 5) Explore personal lending companies.  Commonly referred to as peer to peer lending companies, personal lending companies have a network of approved lenders who are interested in loaning money to new business owners. Lending Club and Prosper are two of the most well-known personal lending companies in the United States. Typically, you specify the amount of money that you need for your startup and the lender will share your reason for needing the loan with their network of lenders. In most cases, you repay the loan on a monthly basis and your interest rate will reflect your credit rating. 6) Consider angel investors.  Angel investors usually have a net worth of roughly one million dollars and a yearly income that is greater than $200,000 USD. They use their own money to invest in startups and often belong to a network of angel investors that invests in startups as a group. A great resource to consider is the Angel Capital Association (ACA), which is comprised of over 13,000 members. The ACA can provide you with a comprehensive list of accredited angel investors in your geographical region. 7) Take advantage of crowdfunding.  Crowdfunding has experienced sharp growth as a means of attracting investors for startups. This method showcases your startup and enables members of the public to decide how much money they want to invest in your business. The key to successfully raising money through crowdfunding is to choose an established and reputable crowdfunding site. FitSmallBusiness.com offers a comprehensive list of the 25 best crowdfunding sites to help startup owners navigate through the mushrooming number of crowdfunding sites.  8) Consider corporate venture capital arms.  Two of the top reasons that companies develop corporate venture capital arms is to gain access to new prospective partners and to establish relationships with entrepreneurs. While corporate venture arms sometimes look for specific types of startups to invest in, they tend to target startups with a large financial upside and excellent growth potential. Startups with expansive target markets are also popular choices with this type of investor. 9) Look into business accelerators.  Business accelerator funding is increasing in popularity, especially among startups looking for funding in the range of $25,000. There are many perks associated with business accelerators. Access to mentors and office space is a key benefit of working with a business accelerator such as TechStars and YCombinator. However, startup owners need to be prepared to give business accelerators a stake in their company. 10) Consider a startup incubator.  Much like an incubator found in a neonatal intensive care unit, a startup incubator helps provide a nurturing atmosphere for growth for a budding business in its most vulnerable state. Examples of incubators include schools, companies, or any established organization that is willing to provide cash, office space, or marketing services in exchange for a stake in your company. The Bottom Line  Your startup’s initial success hinges in great part upon your ability to secure investors to fund your operations. With a plethora of avenues to attract prospective investors and a recent increase in venture capital funds, entrepreneurs have more resources than ever to ensure that they build a stable foundation for their startup. By carefully considering the options above, you can help ensure that you build a stable foundation for success for your new business.

Disney isn’t wasting any time when it comes to integrating Fox properties into its marketing following the $71.3 billion Disney-Fox merger that was finalized March 21. Major Fox properties “The Shape of Water,” “Deadpool,” “The Simpsons,” “Avatar,” and “Atlanta” have already been added to the official The Walt Disney Company banner on the company’s website. If Disney was going to prominently feature any Fox properties on its official banner, it makes sense it would do so with a recent Best Picture Oscar winner (“The Shape of Water”), a $2 billion franchise (“Avatar”), a record-breaking television series (“Simpsons”), and more. With the Disney-Fox merger finalized, the Mouse House now owns film division 20th Century Fox and will distribute such tentpoles as James Cameron’s forthcoming “Avatar” sequels. The merger has given Disney control of blockbuster properties such as “Deadpool” and “X-Men,” in addition to their in-house mega-franchises “Star Wars” and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Walt Disney Company banner puts newly-acquired major Fox properties opposite Disney-owned “Star Wars,” “Captain Marvel,” “Good Morning America,” and “Frozen” to make clear what a dominant force Disney is in the aftermath of the Fox acquisition. [pmc-related-link href=”https://www.indiewire.com/2019/03/disney-fox-2000-elizabeth-gabler-layoffs-1202052748/” type=”Read More:” target=”_blank”]Disney Retires Fox 2000 Imprint, Lays Off Top Executives Following Acquisition[/pmc-related-link] While Disney has previously said it will not touch indie label Fox Searchlight (the company behind “The Shape of Water” and Oscar winner “The Favourite”), it has already axed one Fox imprint: Fox 2000. The news was announced the day after the merger. Fox 2000 was well known for producing mid-budget dramas for adults and specialized audiences, including “Hidden Figures,” “The Hate U Give,” “The Thin Red Line,” “The Devil Wears Prada,” “Walk the Line,” “The Fault in Our Stars,” “Joy,” and “Life of Pi.” Major layoffs of Fox executives have also struck in the aftermath of the merger, including Fox 2000 head Elizabeth Gabler, president of worldwide marketing Pam Levine, domestic distribution chief Chris Aronson, and chief creative officer Tony Sella, among others. Sella was behind the production and release of over 400 Fox titles, including “Avatar.” Next up for Disney is the release of Tim Burton’s “Dumbo” on March 29 and “Avengers: Endgame” on April 26.
