Halliburton shareholders approve compensation, changes

Houston-based Halliburton Co. (NYSE: HAL) shareholders voiced approval of the company’s executive compensation and passed a measure changing compensation structure at the company going forward at an annual meeting this week. The shareholder approvals are a shift from last year’s annual meeting, in which shareholders voted against the executive compensation measure for the first time in Halliburton’s history. After the 2018 vote failed to pass, Halliburton said in a press release that the company was disappointed by the result and that it would continue to engage with shareholders on executive compensation issues.
