Disney Sets Date for Annual Meeting of Shareholders

The Walt Disney Company has filed a preliminary proxy statement setting their Annual Meeting of shareholders for April 3.

  • The preliminary proxy statement, which can be read here, sets Disney’s Annual Meeting of shareholders for Wednesday, April 3 at 10 AM PT.
  • The meeting will be held virtually at www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/DIS2024
  • The statement includes a letter from Disney CEO Bob Iger, encouraging shareholders to vote against board nominees from Trian and Blackwells:
    • “I join with all my fellow Board members in not endorsing the Trian Group Nominees or the Trian Group Proposal, the Blackwells Groups Nominees or the Blackwells Group Proposal, and in recommending that you use the WHITE proxy card to vote “FOR” the election of the twelve (12) nominees proposed by your Board (Mary T. Barra, Safra A. Catz, Amy L. Chang, D. Jeremy Darroch, Carolyn N. Everson, Michael B.G. Froman, James P. Gorman, Robert A. Iger, Maria Elena Lagomasino, Calvin R. McDonald, Mark G. Parker and Derica W. Rice) and as your Board recommends on all other proposals.”
  • A recent filing from Disney said the company’s official proxy statement will not come until April.
  • This preliminary proxy from Disney comes just a day after the Trian Group urged Disney shareholders to withhold votes for Disney board members Michael B.G. Froman and Maria Elena Lagomasino in their own proxy.
