Power Financial Corp. directors urged Montreal's Desmarais family to create a provision to allow for the eventual elimination of the dual-class share structure that gives the family control over parent company Power Corp. - but the Desmarais clan rejected the proposal.

The suggestion came during negotiations between the two companies late last year after Power Corp. proposed a plan to buy the minority stake in Power Financial that it doesn't already own, according to disclosures published Tuesday in a shareholder takeover bid circular.

Improving the Proxy Process

Improving the transparency, accountability and functionality of the proxy process is another significant Commission initiative designed to serve the interests of our long-term Main Street investors.  In the past two decades, the proxy process has become one of both (1) increased complexity and (2) importance to investors, issuers and investment advisers.  Commission rule changes, state law changes, corporate governance practices, technology and other factors have all increased the interest in, and significance of, shareholder engagement and shareholder voting in our public capital markets.  During this time, investment advisers have also assumed a much greater role in our marketplace and, consequently, a greater role in the area of beneficial owner- shareholder-company engagement. [10]  Last fall, the Commission held a roundtable on improving the proxy process that brought together investors, issuers and other market participants who raised and discussed many issues in this area. [11]  We have also received significant public comment and helpful suggestions to improve our proxy voting system. [12]  While there are a wide range of viewpoints on these topics, one thing is clear—there is significant interest in modernizing and improving the proxy process.  The Commission has taken a number of concrete steps during this year to increase transparency, accountability and functionality in the area of proxy voting.
