The Australian Securities & Investments Commission has released the results of its review of the latest AGM season. ASIC found that there was a decline in the number of "first strikes" issued against company boards over their remuneration reports, although here was an increase in the number of votes against individual directors. Shareholder-generated resolutions relating to climate change and human rights were tabled at eight AGMs, but attracted an average of just six per cent of "for" votes.
