NOTE: Shareholder Votes on Executive Compensation
Will Be Held at All Publicly Held Companies

As required by the financial reform legislation passed in 2010, beginning in 2011 all companies must hold an advisory shareholder vote on the frequency with which shareowners vote on the compensation of CEOs and senior executives. These resolutions are commonly known as "say on pay" resolutions and will offer shareowners the option of voting on executive compensation every year, every two years, or every three years. Green America urges all investors to vote in favor of annual votes on executive compensation to encourage greater oversight of the highest salaries within corporations. Investors may then choose whether to vote against, abstain, or support specific compensation packages, understanding the role that excessive executive pay played in creating the nation's financial crisis.
