Independent Advisory Firm ISS Recommends Shareholders Vote FOR all Globecomm's Proposals at the November 15th Shareholder Meeting
HAUPPAUGE, N.Y. --(Business Wire)--
Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: GCOM), a leading communications solutions
provider, today announced that independent advisory firms Institutional
Shareholder Services (ISS) and Egan Jones have recommended that
Globecomm shareholders vote FOR all proposals at Globecomm's November 15th
Annual Meeting and Glass Lewis recommended that Globecomm shareholders
FOR seven of the eight director nominees and FOR all other proposals.
In recommending that shareholders vote FOR all proposals, ISS noted,
"Based on review and evaluation of company disclosures and practices,
ISS recommends support for all agenda items at this meeting."
"We are pleased that all three independent proxy advisory firms support
the amendment of the 2006 Stock Incentive Plan and the executive
compensation plan, and that the three firms are supportive of the
director nominees," said Dave Hershberg, Globecomm's Chairman and CEO.
Glass Lewis recommends voting FOR seven of the eight Board nominees, but
recommends WITHHOLD on the chairman of the nominating and corporate
governance committee, because the Company has neither appointed an
independent chairman nor an independent lead or presiding director.
In reviewing the executive compensation plan Glass Lewis stated:
"Globecomm Systems' (News - Alert) executive compensation received an A grade in our
proprietary pay-for-performance model."
The Globecomm Board reiterates its recommendation that shareholders vote
FOR all the proposals at the Company's Annual Meeting of Stockholders on
November 15, 2012.
