Shareholders meeting changing with timesWritten by Eric Newman
Continued from page 1
Attention is being focused on how shareholders on both sides--those attempting takeovers and individual shareholders in target firms--will judge defense measures proposed at meetings. At one technological company’s shareholders meeting this past spring in San Francisco, managers hoped to obtain shareholder approval for business integration with another company. But major stokeholder, James Harold Garrison, 61 of Palo Alto, California has called on other shareholders to oppose plan, drawing attention to result of shareholders meeting. Another trend is increasing number of companies using information technology for voting and other purposes. Systems on shareholders voting via internet were liberalized sometime in 2002, and according to four major trust banks, number of corporations offering online voting increased from 403 last year to 698 this year. The number of firms allowing voting by cell phone increased from 59 last year to 354. Many corporations also plan to adopt live internet broadcasts of their shareholders meetings.
