08:35 EDTDRIDarden announces corporate governance reforms
Darden Restaurants is implementing a number of reforms and the board has also recommended changes that would require shareholder approval at the company's 2015 Annual Meeting of Shareholders. The changes include, but are not limited to: termination of the company's Shareholder Rights Plan – the company has eliminated the Poison Pill by amending the Rights Agreement to expire on November 28, 2014 rather than May 25, 2015; the company has adopted a majority voting standard in uncontested elections; the company has amended its political engagement and disclosure policy to provide additional disclosure of its political contributions and lobbying efforts; the board has resolved to recommend for shareholder approval, at the company's next annual meeting, an amendment to the Charter to provide a 10% voting threshold to call a special meeting; the board has recommended for shareholder approval an amendment to the relevant provisions of the Charter to eliminate the supermajority requirement. The board also adopted a revised peer group for compensation benchmarking, which better matches the company's size and profile. This new peer group will assist the board in further aligning compensation practices with shareholder interests.
