First strike against the remuneration report at Cardno
Cardno received a first strike against its remuneration report at today's AGM, with 40.69% of the poll votes against the adoption of the remuneration report. Of course we were all made aware of this likely outcome when the substantial shareholder in question, Crescent Capital Investments sent a letter to the Board of Cardno and the media got wind of it...around the same time the shareholder advised its intention to launch a partial takeover offer. While the shareholder also indicated they would vote against the resolutions to re-elect the current Board members, all of those resolutions passed at today's AGM.
