Today P&G held our 2022 Annual Meeting of Shareholders. You can view today’s press release here, and results are summarized below, all according to preliminary voting results.
Board Elections and Proposals
P&G shareholders elected all 11 P&G Director nominees, including Mr. Subramaniam and 10 incumbent Directors, with each receiving more than 90 percent support according to preliminary voting results. P&G’s Board is comprised of eminently qualified individuals who bring seasoned judgment and a variety of skills and experiences with them into the boardroom. The elected Directors are also demographically diverse – 45% women and 45% multicultural – with a mix of tenure, age and industry experience. Learn more about our Board here.
The robust Director candidate assessment and selection process that our Board follows has resulted in the diverse set of active, capable and diligent Board members elected by P&G shareholder vote today.
Shareholders also passed both Board proposals. No shareholder proposals were on the ballot in 2022.
P&G’s Chairman of the Board, President and CEO Jon Moeller announced that the Board of Directors declared P&G's latest quarterly dividend of $0.9133 per share. P&G has been paying a dividend for 132 consecutive years since its incorporation in 1890 and has increased the dividend for 66 consecutive years.
