The face-off between Disney and investor Nelson Peltz has come to an end. Today, April 3rd shareholders voted on the Disney Board nominees.

Peltz was trying for a seat for himself and former Disney CFO Jay Rasulo. Peltz did not support the reappointment of Bob Iger in 2022.

This is not the first time Peltz has been after a seat on Disney’s board. He made a 2023 proxy attempt to gain a seat. However, Iger argued that he lacked expertise and recommended shareholders discard their ballots.

The shareholder vote results were the first thing on the agenda for the 2024 Annual Shareholder Meeting.

The shareholders voted and have elected Disney’s full state of 12 directors “by a substantial margin.” Peltz has lost and will not receive a seat on the board.

Disney stated, “Final voting tallies are subject to certification by the Company’s independent inspector of elections, and preliminary and final results will be included in the Company’s reports to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission in the coming days.”

At the beginning of the shareholder meeting, Bob Iger released a statement regarding the proxy contest. See his statement below:

Peltz addresses shareholders and stated, “Regardless of the outcome of today’s vote, Trian will be watching the company’s performance.”

Many are happy with the results of this vote and victory for Disney, as they felt Peltz was not a good fit for the Disney board.

I gave up on Disney & sold my shares. Very disappointed.

Sure, Iger. We'll see. Don't trust him to do what is best for the company at all. As a stockholder and a fan, I was hoping Peltz would be successful.

@JW, you do know about the other companies Nelson has been a part of. I have heard that they have had problems and near or full bankruptcies.
