What is SHAREHOLDER RESOLUTION? What does SHAREHOLDER RESOLUTION mean? SHAREHOLDER RESOLUTION meaning - SHAREHOLDER RESOLUTION definition - SHAREHOLDER RESOLUTION explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. With respect to public companies in the United States, Shareholder resolutions are proposals submitted by shareholders for a vote at the company's annual meeting. Typically, resolutions are opposed by the corporation's management, hence the insistence for a vote. For publicly held corporations in the United States, the submission and handling of resolutions is regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Shareholders submit resolutions dealing primarily with corporate governance, such as executive compensation, or corporate social responsibility issues, such as global warming, labor relations, tobacco smoking, human rights, and animal welfare. Virtually all shareholder resolutions are non-binding (or "precatory," to use the legal term of art). In this sense the voting on these resolutions more closely resembles a poll than it does a (binding) referendum or plebiscite. Still, media coverage of voting on shareholder resolutions tends to focus on whether the proposal received a majority of votes, which occurs in a very small but increasing proportion of cases. According to SEC rules, defeated resolutions may be resubmitted only if they pass certain election hurdles (percentage of affirmative votes). Shareholder resolutions have been an important part of activist campaigns in several cases. For example, resolutions were effective at raising public awareness and thereby pressuring corporate management about investments in apartheid South Africa, nuclear power, and labor disputes. Given these results, resolutions have been spearheaded by several coordinating groups, including the AFL-CIO and the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility. Governmental and labor union pension funds also have become involved in supporting and submitting shareholder resolutions. A shareholder resolution to protest napalm manufacturer Dow Chemical resulted in a U.S. Supreme Court case called SEC v. MEDICAL COMMITTEE FOR HUMAN RIGHTS, 404 U.S. 403 (1972). The court decided that the case was moot due to Dow's agreeing to include the resolution on its proxy statement. The dissent argument by Justice Douglas encourages the SEC to facilitate more shareholder resolutions. "The philosophy of our times, I think, requires that such enterprises be held to a higher standard than that of the "morals of the marketplace" which exalts a single-minded, myopic determination to maximize profits as the traditional be-all and end-all of corporate concern."

This would indicate that he felt that there would be a moral consequence to owning a tobacco company.  Warren Buffet admits to drinking five cherry cokes a day.  While we know this is not good for your health should it be considered the same as smoking cigarettes? Some critics would argue yes, adults are aware of the health consequences of smoking a cigarette and anyone who is choosing to smoke is responsible for that choice.  Others argue that there are moral theories in business to hold those accountable that knowingly do harm.  If Steven Goldstone thought about the moral awareness of running a very large tobacco company he decide to no longer be CEO.  It is definitely not a secret the devastating effects a cigarette c

English/Nat The second largest U-S tobacco company says it is breaking up its businesses. R-J-R Nabisco announced on Tuesday that it would sell its international tobacco business to Japan Tobacco for nearly eight (b) billion U-S dollars. The company also said it plans to separate its domestic U-S cigarette business from its food interests. R-J-R was among the four major American tobacco companies that recently settled claims by 46 states for the expense of treating sick smokers. It agreed to pay 206 (b) billion U-S dollars over 25 years. R-J-R Nabisco's announcement will mean the breakup of a company that was acquired just over a decade ago for roughly 25 (b) billion dollars - in what was then the biggest leveraged buyout. The company had told analysts last month that it was looking to sell or find a partner for its struggling international tobacco business. But it came as a surprise that its board had also endorsed a plan for the subsequent spinoff of the domestic tobacco business into a separate company. Its R.J. Reynolds Tobacco division makes Winston, Camels and Salem cigarettes and is second in the U-S only to Philip Morris Cos. Inc., the maker of Marlboro. On the news of the sale, R-J-R Nabisco stock jumped more than 5 percent, rising 1.50 dollars to 30.121/2 dollars a share by early afternoon on the New York Stock Exchange. The company has been under pressure from shareholders, including one-time corporate raider Carl Icahn who threatened a proxy fight to force RJR Nabisco to separate the tobacco and food businesses. Icahn faced a deadline of Friday for filing a slate of candidates for election to the RJR board in May. A call to Icahn was not immediately returned. The advocates of a split-up of the tobacco and food ties argued the market is undervaluing the food business because of its connection with the potential liabilities of the tobacco operations. The spin off would leave R-J-R Nabisco with an 80.6 percent stake in Nabisco Holdings Corp., which makes products like Oreo cookies, Ritz crackers and Planters nuts. Analysts have warned that a deal to separate all connections between the food and tobacco businesses would likely draw legal challenges from people who may have claims over tobacco-related illnesses. The international tobacco business is a distant third to Philip Morris and British-American Tobacco P-L-C, and its earnings have fallen amid financial turmoil in its key Russian and Asian markets. Japan Tobacco, the leading tobacco company in Japan and a growing overseas business, is paying 7.8 (b) billion U-S dollars and is assuming 200 (m) million U-S dollars in debt to acquire the international tobacco operations. The sale is subject to approval by R-J-R Nabisco bondholders and regulators, but is expected to be completed within two months. R-J-R said it would use the proceeds to reduce its debt and for other corporate purposes, including strengthening the position of its domestic tobacco business. R-J-R said it would announce details on the domestic tobacco spinoff, pending final board approval, after the sale of the international tobacco business is complete.

The Kenyan subsidiary of British American Tobacco wants the government to develop a sustainable tax regime on tobacco products claiming that the latest move to tax cigarettes on retail price instead of cigarette characteristics has been counterproductive. The company also told shareholders that the government has not been consistent in implementing anti counterfeit laws, exposing the company's revenue earnings on many fronts.

French/Nat Cigars all round for French tobacco company Seita and its Spanish counterpart Tabacalera. The two firms held a joint press conference in Paris Wednesday to confirm their merger. The new company, to be called Altadis, will be the biggest tobacco company in Europe. It was late Tuesday night when Seita and Tabacalera announced they had signed an agreement on a 50-50 merger between the two tobacco groups. The merger is part of a wave of consolidation in the industry. It creates a European tobacco firm big enough to rival the world's three biggest tobacco companies, Philip Morris, Japan Tobacco and BAT. Management of the new company, to be called Altadis, say the future looks exciting. SOUNDBITE: (French) "We've succeeded in having the same strategic vision for the two companies and there's a strong personal chemistry between Comolli and myself which has grown into a good friendship of which I'm very proud. Today we start the future for our new company, called Altadis, which I think will be a great success." SUPERCAPTION: Cesar Alierta, CEO Tabacalera The deal will be carried out on the basis of 19 Tabacalera shares for every six Seita shares. Seita shareholders will also receive an exceptional dividend of EUR5 (£3.50) per share once the merger goes through. Shares in Altadis will be quoted on both the Paris and Madrid stock exchanges. The head of French company Seita is delighted at the opportunities of the joint venture. SOUNDBITE: (French) "This creates a new leader in the tobacco market in Europe with immense buying power and market share in Western Europe where we produce 80 million cigarettes. And Altadis will be the number one cigarette producer in the world. And that's going to be pretty evident because Seita is already the number one and if you join the number one with the number two that can only re-enforce your leading position." SUPERCAPTION: Jean Dominique Comolli, CEO Seita Altadis will be the world's fourth largest tobacco group in terms of revenue and the largest producer of cigars, with a market share of close to 25% of world sales.
