DALLAS, Nov. 17, 2011/PRNewswire/ -- Goldfarb Branham LLP is investigating whether certain officers and directors of Cogent Communications Group (Nasdaq: CCOI) violated shareholder protection laws by paying executives excessive compensation. Concerned Cogent Communication investors are encouraged to contact attorney Hamilton Lindley at 877-583-2855 or email@example.com about their rights and remedies.
"Recently, at the Company's annual stockholder meeting, only 36% of the Company's shareholders voted in favor of Cogent's executive compensation program," said Hamilton Lindley. "Cogent historically has been unsuccessful in generating revenues that exceed its operating expenses. Nevertheless, the CEO and other executives have reaped millions in annual compensation, mainly through equity incentive awards that the Board has granted without regard to company performance. Our proposed shareholder lawsuit seeks to ensure that the Cogent Communication executives are held to their fiduciary duties."
