Pershing Square's ADP Presentation

Bill Ackman's activist investment firm Pershing Square has a new position: Automatic Data Processing (ADP).  The firm recently released a slideshow presentation on their investment.

Their transformation plan for ADP includes the following:

- Fix corporate structure, corporate bloat and inefficiency
- Accelerate investments in product and back-end improvements
- Accelerate product migrations
- Reduce excess support personnel, focus on value-add services
- Increase sales force productivity

As a result, they see the company increasing growth and margins.  Pershing has also been trying to gain board representation but so far has been unsuccessful.  

Embedded below is Pershing Square's ADP Presentation: "The Time Is Now"
