Duke Energy CEO Discusses Company Performance, Future Growth, Coal Ash Management At Annual Shareholders' Meeting

Good also fielded questions on a range of topics during a one-hour portion of the meeting dedicated to shareholder inquiries and comments.

Shareholders overwhelmingly re-elected all 15 members of Duke Energy's board of directors who were up for re-election. Term length is one year.

Two members of the current 17-member member board – William Barnet and Philip Sharp – were not up for re-election because they are retiring from the board, per the company's director retirement policy and corporate governance principles.

Shareholders approved two management proposals:

  • "Amendment to Duke Energy Corporation's amended and restated certificate of incorporation to authorize shareholder action by less than unanimous written consent."
  • "Advisory vote to approve Duke Energy Corporation's named executive officer compensation."

Shareholders also approved a shareholder proposal – "Shareholder proposal regarding shareholder right to call a special shareholder meeting."

Shareholders rejected a second shareholder proposal – "Shareholder proposal regarding political contribution disclosure."

Details on all four proposals appear in the company's March 20, 2014 proxy, available at: http://www.duke-energy.com/pdfs/Proxy_Statement_2014.pdf.
