If the Shareholder Meeting is Remote, Is There Something to Hide?


Is a corporation hiding something if they hold their annual shareholders’ meeting in a remote location. Most annual meetings are close to headquarters and scheduled at convenient times. However, what happens if the meeting is scheduled at 7:00am on the day after Christmas in Gillette, Wyoming? Should you be worried? David Yermack is a professor of finance at at New York University and has researched the issue. His publication, “Evasive Shareholder Meetings” tells you what he and his collaborator discovered. You’ll be amazed and amused.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
