Researching is one of my passions, and the adopted view of using online internet presence for publicly disclosing proxy materials is a no brainer. I was reading a very informative blog of which I have snipped the following below, but you should read the whole post: http://tinyurl.com/ljh32s “In 2007, the SEC adopted amendments to its proxy rules that would require reporting companies and other persons soliciting proxies to post their proxy materials on a publicly accessible Internet website and provide shareholders with a written notice of the Internet availability of the proxy materials, except in connection with a business combination. Large accelerated filers (other than registered investment companies) were required to comply with the e-proxy rules starting January 1, 2008. All other reporting companies (including registered investment companies) and other soliciting persons must comply starting January 1, 2009. The e-proxy rules provide two alternatives for the delivery of proxy materials: (1) the notice only option; and (2) the full set delivery option. An issuer or other soliciting person may use the notice only option for some shareholders and the full set delivery option for others.” Under the notice only option, an issuer must send a Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials to all shareholders and must post its proxy materials on a publicly accessible Internet website (other than the SEC’s EDGAR website), in both cases at least 40 calendar days before the meeting date. It is official, you can’t be a public company without a website or at least a blog!
