Stock Voting Shares for Hilton: guarantee a seat on the BOD
January 19th, 2023
Hilton has 220,000 shares of stock outstanding with a current market value of $34 a share. I own 40,000 of these shares.
Next month, the election will be held to select three new members to the board of directors. The firm uses a cumulative voting system.
How much additional money do I need to spend to guarantee that I will be elected to the board assuming that everyone else votes for one of the other candidates?
