"Odds stacked in their favour", there is access to certain corporate resources to opponents of management, under different regimes. E.G. to call a special general meeting, propose resolutions, write to shareholders. These need to be mentioned by someone who knows the details under at least one legal framework. Also shareholder apathy... Rich Farmbrough, 12:17 27 November 2006 (GMT).
Actually, as a professional in these kind of situations, I would 100% agree with the statement "Odds stacked in their favor." In a US proxy fight management has a significant advantage because all non-voted shares are voted in favor of management. Its a legal ploy that makes mounting an effective proxy solicitation a real challenge. R550D 23:13, 27 January 2007 (UTC)
I have to agree with the second comment. I don't see bias. In most cases, incumbent-type officials (including management) have more resources than those fighting against them.
There should not be any mention of the Yahoo deal in the article and the "Odds stacked" is a bit of an overstatement. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 23:01, 13 May 2008 (UTC)
