Investor Briefings: Coming Trend Bolstered by Virtual Shareholder Meetings
So far, companies are refusing to include opportunities for shareholders to chat with each other at virtual-only AGMs. Although not legally required, like holding question and answer sessions, the ability of shareholders to communicate with each other and with company representatives/employees is critical to maintain a semblance of democracy. See Chat Rooms Missing at Shareholder Meetings.
Investor pre-meetings are a positive development, regardless of what steps companies make to make virtual-only meetings more like in-person meetings. However, the more companies fail to duplicate critical opportunities for informal communications, the more likely we are to see a gathering storm of investor sponsored premeetings.
