Dover Corporation (DOV)
Voluntary submission by John Chevedden, P.O. Box 2673, Redondo Beach, California 90278
Dover Corporation Shareholder
Proposals 4 and 5 are the most important items on the ballot!
It is time to tell Stephen Wagner, the Chairman of the Dover Corporation Corporate Governance Committee, to get serious about passing proposals 4 and 5 – the most important items on the ballot:
Proposal 4 – Approval of Amendments to Article 15 of Our Charter to Eliminate Super-Majority Voting Requirement
Proposal 5 – Approval of Amendments to Article 16 of Our Charter to Eliminate Super-Majority Voting Requirement
Due to the antiquated Dover Corporation corporate governance these 2 items need 80% of the vote from every last share of Dover stock in the attic.
A share that is not voted is the same as a share that votes no.
Mr. Wagner needs a wake-up call. What is the excuse for Dover to obtain 79% failed votes on similar proposals in 2017 and 2018?
One can be almost sure that if an executive pay proposal was about to fail by 1% that somehow the 1% deficit would be eliminated.
It would be egg-on-the-face of the Board and Mr. Wagner to come close to obtaining the necessary votes and still fail on these 2 important proposals.
Apparently Mr. Wagner can be contacted through:
Andrey Galiuk <email@example.com>
Vice President - Corporate Development and Investor Relations
If Against votes are cast for Mr. Wagner then perhaps he will feel incentivized to avoid a 3rd consecutive near-miss on these important proposals.
