The Board-Centric Annual Meeting
For 30 years shareholders have called the shots at annual meetings. Now it is time for boards to take charge.
Sodali’s annual Client Memo for 2016, entitled “The Board-Centric Annual Meeting,” explains how companies can respond to global trends that are reshaping the fiduciary duty of corporate boards, the fundamentals of corporate reporting and the conduct of AGMs. By embracing the emerging principles of board-centric governance, companies can reduce their vulnerability to shareholder activism, improve relations with institutional investors and bring the focus of AGMs back onto business issues rather than compliance with governance check lists.
