Bizjourmals.com- The country’s largest proxy advisory company recommended the election of four of the five board members nominated by hedge funds engaged in a proxy contest with CSX Corp.
The Children’s Investment Fund Management LLP and 3G Capital Partners Ltd. have nominated five new members for CSX’s 12-member board.
The RiskMetrics Group, a proxy advisory company, withheld recommending Gary Wilson. It also recommended rejecting CSX’s proposal that would allow shareholders to call special meetings except on topics voted on within the last year. Because CSX elects board members at its annual shareholder meeting, that would bar special meetings to recall board members. RiskMetrics said the proposal would further entrench the board and isolate shareholders.
