OGE Energy Corp. reports results of annual shareholders meeting


OGE Energy Corp. reported the results this week of its recent annual shareholders meeting showing the election of 10 members of the Board of Directors and the company’s proposed executive officer compensation.

A filing with the Securities Exchange Commission showed that shareholders did not approve an amendment of the restated certificate of incorporation to eliminate supermajority voting provisions. But nearly 79% of the shareholders who voted, supported the company taking steps to amend the governing documents to allow shareholders to act by written consent.

Of the 10 directors elected to the board, all received at least 130 million votes and the largest amount of opposition was more than 5 million votes for the election of Luke R. Corbett to the board. He still received more than 130 million votes.

Other directors chosen to the board were: Frank A. Bozich, James H. Brandi, Peter D. Clarke, David L. Hauser, Judy R. McReynolds, David E. Rainbolt, J. Michael Sanner, Sheila G. Talton and Sean Trauschke.
Hauser received the most votes with 133,270,815.

The approval of the executive officer compensation came on a vote of 128,731,647 in support while 5,623,849 were against.
