Courtesy of Suki Fuller, I see that:
New Brunswick, NJ (April 16, 2009) – Johnson & Johnson will webcast its Annual Meeting of Shareholders at 10 a.m. (Eastern Time) on Thursday, April 23, from the Hyatt Regency Hotel in New Brunswick, N.J. Investors and other interested parties may access the meeting by visiting the Company’s website at www.jnj.com, and clicking on the webcast icon. A replay of presentations from the meeting will be available for three months beginning several hours after the live meeting concludes. The replay can be accessed by clicking on “Webcasts/Presentations” in the Investor Relations section of the Company’s website.
This is awesome. It is common practice among technology vendors in the US to webcast – or should I say audio cast – their earnings calls but this is the first time I can recall an AGM being webcast in this way.
Transparency is coming and this is just one more example of how it plays out.
