いわゆるuniversal proxyを用いて委任状勧誘を行い株主側の取締役が会社側の取締役と同時に選任された事例

WSJ:

EQT Corp. and the Rice group of shareholders, led by Toby Rice and Derek Rice, said shareholders at the company’s annual meeting Wednesday elected all seven Rice-nominated directors and five nominees supported by both entities. …

EQT is using a universal ballot for its shareholder vote, setting it up to be one of the few high-profile proxy fights to use such cards, which allow shareholders to pick from both sides’ nominees. Universal ballots can make it more likely a company will lose some board seats to a dissident but less likely they’ll lose a majority of seats.

 

 個人的に興味を持ったのが,会社側の取締役が選任されなかったこととによって株価が上昇したことです(直ぐに元の水準に戻ったようですが)。

The Street:

The stock of natural gas giant EQT Corp. (EQT – Get Report) jumped Wednesday after shareholders handed control of the board to an activist group led by former owners. Shares of the Pittsburgh company rose 2.5% to $16.05 after holders voted to award seven seats on the 12-member board to a group called the Rice Team.
