Twitter, Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) tech directors miss shareholder meetings
Some small investors who want to give a piece of their minds to big tech company directors are losing their only chance: many board members are skipping annual shareholder meetings. Companies that hold meetings online have some of the worst records for attendance.
A large portion of Alphabet Inc GOOGL, Facebook Inc FB, Netflix Inc NFLX and Twitter Inc TWTR directors have not attended annual shareholder meetings in recent years, company records and securities filings show, in some cases in growing numbers.
Of nine Twitter directors, only CEO Jack Dorsey was identified as present at its meeting on May 30, also held only online. Two Twitter directors attended last year’s event, down from six in 2016 and five in 2015, filings show. A Twitter spokeswoman declined to comment on the figures and said the online format was aimed at boosting stockholder participation.
The market seemed to nitpick initially over some sequential growth comments from management in the call. However the disparity is not significant and is simply management staying conservative.
The quote of the conference call in my opinion was when CEO Jack Dorsey said, “We are not a social network and we do not benefit from the same social graph that social networks do. People come to us because they’re interested in something and they’re interested in seeing what’s happening within the world or within a particular topic or within a particular niche interest.”
