Sprint Corp. shareholders are set to gather electronically for the company’s shareholders meeting Wednesday afternoon.
The online-only event is the first for the Overland Park-based company. It also is the first shareholders meeting since Sprint was 80 percent acquired by Tokyo-based SoftBank Corp. last year.
Shareholders and spectators can view the event from Sprint’s investor relations website. The company asks participants to join 10 minutes before the scheduled 3 p.m. start. Stockholders are expected to provide a 12-digit control number for access. Others will be asked to register for the meeting.
Sprint had held recent shareholders meetings at the Ritz Charles event center in Overland Park.
Its virtual meeting is being handled by Broadridge Financial Solutions Inc. Broadridge worked with 67 public companies during last year's round of shareholders meetings, said Chuck Callan, the company’s senior vice president. A bit more than half were virtual-only meetings.
Sprint shareholders, dominated by SoftBank, will elect directors and weigh a few proposals, including ones on executive pay and stock ownership and one on the company’s political contributions.
