Disney's Annual Shareholders Meeting For 2012
Disney Puts On An Entertaining Annual Meeting In KC
Kansas City Star
Loud, energizing music, slick video montages and choreographed crowd control: It was pure Disney.
For its annual meeting, Walt Disney Co. on Tuesday packed a Kansas City hotel ballroom with about 500 shareholders, many of them Disney fans who had flown in from around the country.
After yielding cellphones and cameras, and passing through security akin to airport checkpoints, stockholders were treated to a quick financial summary of a very good 2011 — record revenues of $40.9 billion and a 21 percent increase in net income to a record $4.8 billion.

Both groups objected to corporate governance decisions, but urged investors to express their anger by opposing different directors.
