Williams Cos. to hold annual meeting in April

At last word, Tulsa’s Williams Cos. still planned to hold its 2020 annual meeting of stockholders on April 28 despite the coronavirus pandemic.

A proxy statement filed this week with the Securities Exchange Commission stated the meeting will be held at the Williams Resource Center Theater, One Williams Center in Tulsa at 2 p.m.

There was no mention of whether the meeting could be postponed or delayed due to the coronavirus. Instead, the proxy filing showed an agenda that will include the election of 11 director nominees; consider an amendment to the Williams Companies, Inc. 2007 Incentive Plan; consider an amendment to the company’s 2007 Employee Stock Purchase Plan; approve executive compensation; and ratify appointment of Ernst and Young LLP as the firm’s independent auditors.

The filing stated that the Board unanimously recommended stockholders to vote for each of the director nominees and for each of the proposals.
