The adoption by the Securities and Exchange Commission of the “Notice and Access” E-Proxy model in late 2007 allowed public companies to make their proxy materials available to shareholders through Internet access only, or by providing the traditional printed proxy materials, or a combination of both. Many companies adopted the Internet access only process and stopped mailing printed proxy materials to their shareholders, primarily as a means to save on the associated costs.
