Study finds increasing shareholder influence in companies
Thursday, April 19, 2012
The results of a new study from FTI Consulting reveal the increasing role that shareholders have in the corporate affairs of certain companies.
The second annual Corporate Governance Investor Survey from FTI Consulting found that executive compensation is the hottest corporate governance topic in 2012 and boards that did not address opposition to compensation are the most vulnerable.
"Historically, shareholder involvement into boardroom affairs has been reserved for activist investors," said Elizabeth Saunders, Americas chairman of the strategic communications practice at FTI. "But increasingly, we are seeing that the investment community at large wants to have the levers to hold executive leadership accountable for performance and corporate practices."
Shareholders were kept in the loop with the recent evolution of one company. In a note to the shareholders of Green Endeavors, a majority-owned subsidiary of Nexia Holdings, CEO Richard Surber wrote that 2011 was a strong year for the companies, as it increased its growth overall as well as improved its operating systems and streamlined its marketing practices.
