As a 10 year shareholder with just over 1000 shares, I am very disappointed with Weldon's retirement package. The dismal stock perfomance, the numerous recalls, and lackluster drug development spells failure for this man.
He should have received nothing. He already was being paid quite handsomely.
Any shareholders who plan to attend the annual meeting, please make sure you raise a stink about this issue at the meeting. Make your voice heard. Let your feelings about this matter be known. Don't feel helpless or act like a victim. Change always starts small. Take charge, you are an owner and have a direct stake in how this company is run. Even if it is not immediately apparent, your protests will make a difference.
I have already written to IR expressing my disgust.
