IDEXX Laboratories' CEO Hosts Annual Shareholder Meeting Conference (Transcript)

now I’ll ask Mr. Wiener to furnish us with a account of the number of shares present at the meeting through representation by proxy.

Ted Wiener

There are present at this meeting through representation of our proxy 53,116,813 shares of common stock.

Conan R. Deady

Thank you, there are being 53,116,813 shares of common stock represented at this meeting, out of a total of 55,129,353 shares of common stock entitled to vote, which is a pretty good percentage. I hereby declare that the quorum exists.

As indicated in the notice of meeting and proxy statements that were made available to all stockholders we’re here today to consider three business items. The election of three class one directors for three year-terms, the approval of a non-binding advisory resolution on the Company’s executive compensation program, and to ratify the selection of PricewaterhouseCoopers as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm.

Are there any stockholders present today who wish to vote by ballot, if so could you please raise your hand. Doesn’t appear as if we have any. What I will now do is go through each of the three items on the ballot and ask if there is any discussion. Following discussion, we will proceed to vote on each item.

The first item of business is the election of three class one directors listed in the Company’s proxy statement, the nominees for election are William T. End, Barry C. Johnson, and Brian P. McKeon.

So any discussion on this item and before we proceed to vote? We will not proceed to vote. Second item of business is the approval of a non-binding advisory resolution on the company’s executive compensation program, which reads as follows: Result that the compensation page to the Company’s named executive officers as disclosed pursuant to Item 402 of Regulation S-K, including the compensation discussion and analysis, compensation tables and narrative discussion is hereby approved. Is there any discussion on this matter before we proceed to vote.
