Electronic components manufacturer Vishay Intertechnology ( VSH) said that it will seek shareholder consent to create a new Class C common stock. Each share of Class C would carry one-tenth of a vote. The creation of new stock will help Vishay to raise additional capital or engage in a range of investment and strategic opportunities without diluting the voting power of its existing stockholders. The company added that it has no specific plans now to issue Class C common stock. Each share of Class C stock would generally have terms identical to a share of Vishay's currently traded common stock which would be renamed Class A. That stock will continue to be traded on the New York Stock Exchange.
