Flooded With Proxy Forms
As a minor shareholder of DuPont stock, I was amused to note the vigor and sometimes acrimony involved in the fight for seats on the board of directors (C&EN, May 25, page 5).
After the first annual report and proxy statement arrived at my house, accompanied by the ballot, I was inundated for the next month or more with alternate proxy forms—one day from the dissident team, and the next day from DuPont. In total, I received at least 30 proxy forms, each requesting my vote.
Perhaps Chief Executive Officer Ellen Kullman would be pleased to note that I filled out the first one favoring the current management of DuPont and placed the rest in a recycle bin.
