Our recent Client Alert takes a fresh look at bylaw and charter amendments at the Silicon Valley 150 during the 2023 proxy season to better understand how companies are addressing new Rule 14a-19, which mandates the use of a universal proxy card in contested elections, as well as the recent amendment to Section 102(b)(7) of the Delaware General Corporation Law, which permits the adoption of officer exculpation charter provisions. The alert provides quantitative and qualitative analyses relating to Rule 14a-19 and other advance notice bylaw amendments, as well as charter amendment proposals, and includes useful takeaways for companies that may be exploring these or similar bylaw or charter amendments.
