More than a 1000 stockholders turned up at Bella Center in Copenhagen for the EAC extraordinary general meeting. The main issue on the agenda was a vote whether the stockholders would accept the sale of the nutrition division to the Dutch company, Numico. A lot of critical remarks stating that EAC was selling out it’s core businesses was expected. However, if somebody was unsatisfied, they kept their complaints to themselves, Danish paper Jyllands-Posten reports.
In stead of criticizing the management, the stockholders gave the CEO Mark Wilson, standing ovations.
“It was a little sad and very emotional standing there receiving flowers. But in spite of being sad, most people knew that selling was the only right thing to do,” Mark Wilson said.
All of the stockholders voted yes to selling the nutrition division for nine billion Danish kroner.
