PHILADELPHIA – Shareholders of Comcast Corporation (NASDAQ:CMCSA), a leading cable and television services provider, convened on Monday to vote on several key corporate governance matters. The annual meeting, which took place on June 10, 2024, led to the election of all director nominees and the ratification of the company's independent auditors, among other decisions.

According to the details provided in the company's 8-K filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the shareholders elected each director nominee for one-year terms with substantial majorities. Notable among the elected directors are Kenneth J. Bacon, Madeline S. Bell, and Brian L. Roberts, the latter being the company's Chairman and CEO.

In addition to the director elections, the appointment of Deloitte & Touche LLP as Comcast's independent auditors for the fiscal year 2024 was ratified with an overwhelming majority of votes in favor.

The shareholders also approved the advisory vote on executive compensation, which reflects their support for the company's approach to compensating its executives.

However, a shareholder proposal requesting a report on political expenditures' alignment with company values was not approved, with a significant number of votes against the proposal.

These decisions are part of Comcast's annual process to address corporate governance and shareholder concerns. The voting results, detailed in the proxy statement dated April 26, 2024, indicate active participation from the shareholders in the company's governance.

The information for this report is based on a press release statement.
