Disney said in an SEC filing this morning that "In connection with ongoing discussions between the company and the proponents of the shareholder proposal on proxy access set forth in the company’s Proxy Statement for the March 18 Annual Shareholder Meeting, the proponents have withdrawn the proposal and the proposal on proxy access will not be presented at the Annual Meeting. The company has amended the third paragraph of its Corporate Governance Guidelines relating to Board Leadership to read as follows: The Chairman of the Board shall in the normal course be an independent director unless the Board concludes that, in light of the circumstances then present when any such decision is made, the best interests of shareholders would be otherwise better served."
