Very strange that Bebe filed its Proxy Statement on October 9th and set a date for the annual meeting on October 22nd. I just received the proxy today, October 18th, from my broker. Manny does control 55% of the voting, so if no one else had an opportunity to vote, it wouldn't matter. No time to send in a mail in ballot. Maybe they are trying to be really "green" and encorage everyone to vote online. In the past, the annual meeting was always scheduled for mid-November.
