Please Vote For Proposal 4 – Special Shareholder Meeting Improvement

 

In response to this proposal it is important for Abbott Laboratories management to clarify whether only shareholders of record are now qualified to contribute to the 20% of all shares outstanding needed to call for a special shareholder meeting.

 

Proposal 4 does not ask to the limit this important right to a select group of shareholders. If only a select group of shareholders are now qualified then shares owned through a stockbroker would be excluded from this important right.

 

The Abbott record holders may only hold 40% of ABT stock outstanding. If so it would take a 50% effort from these record holder only shares to equal 20% of the ABT total voting power to merely call for a special shareholder meeting.

 

Thus the current face value of a 20% effort to call a special shareholder meeting might in reality be a 50% effort which would be a majority from a select group of shareholders. A requirement for a majority from a select group would not be not much of a right compared to the face value of 20%.

 

Abbott management should clarify the point on whether only record holders can now participate in formally calling for a special shareholder meeting. Shareholders would then be able to make a more informed decision.
