Upcoming Vote: Sparton

Sparton will hold its annual meeting in Schaumberg IL on October 27, 2010. Proposals to be voted on include two that further improve Sparton’s corporate governance to best practices as follows:

  • Proposal #3 includes the adoption of a Majority Voting standard for election of directors, and
