Yahoo’s Shareholder Notice Slip-in

yahoo_goodlogo.gifCorporate blogs aren’t typically the place for investor-aimed details about proxy votes, but then again, corporate blogs aren’t typically Yahoo’s. The company, of course, postponed its annual meeting and is embroiled in a proxy battle with activist investor Carl Icahn.

Here’s what Nicki Dugan at Yahoo tacked on to the end of a post about Jerry Yang’s and Sue Decker’s appearance at The Wall Street Journal’s All Things D conference.

Yahoo! will be filing a definitive proxy statement and accompanying WHITE proxy card with the SEC in connection with the solicitation of proxies for its 2008 annual meeting of stockholders. Stockholders are strongly advised to read Yahoo!’s 2008 definitive proxy statement when it becomes available because it will contain important information. Stockholders will be able to obtain copies of Yahoo!’s 2008 definitive proxy statement and other documents filed by Yahoo! with the SEC in connection with its 2008 annual meeting of stockholders at the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov or at the Investor Relations section of Yahoo!’s website at yhoo.client.shareholder.com. Yahoo!, its directors, and certain of its officers may be deemed participants in the solicitation of proxies from stockholders in connection with Yahoo!’s 2008 annual meeting of stockholders. Information concerning Yahoo!’s directors and officers is available in its preliminary proxy statement filed with the SEC on May 22, 2008.

This passage almost seems like a non sequitor. It’s prefaced with a quip referring to Warren Buffett’s cameo on “All My Children.”
