So far, two key takeaways from this proxy season. Shareholder support for company say on pay proposals is reaching new heights, as the failure rate for these proposals have dropped to new lows, 0.9% for S&P 500 companies and 1.3% for Russell 3000 companies.  Shareholder support for proxy access proposals remains strong; however, the number of such proposals has declined markedly from last proxy season.
