For the second consecutive year, the nominees of GAMCO Asset Management failed to win a board seat.
President and Chief Executive Officer John C. Orr said, “Our actions and operating strategies are clearly focused on creating sustainable growth in our markets and value for all shareholders. I believe that the overwhelming election of our board’s nominees by shareholders at the annual meeting today signals our shareholders’ confidence in our strategic direction, performance and growth potential.”
Also at the Annual Meeting, shareholders ratified the appointment of KPMG LLP as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for fiscal 2010.
