Halliburton Shareholders Elect All 11 Nominees To Board At Annual Meeting

Halliburton Co. (HAL: Quote) said Friday its shareholders elected all eleven nominees to the board of directors and ratified the selection of KPMG LLP as principal independent public accountants for 2013 at its annual meeting of shareholders.

The shareholders also approved, on an advisory basis, the compensation of Halliburton's named executive officers and approved an amendment to the company's Stock and Incentive Plan.

However, the shareholders voted against a shareholder proposal regarding human rights risk assessment. Management recommended against the shareholder proposal as it believes the company's existing human rights policy is sufficient.

At the board of directors' meeting following the stockholders' meeting, the board declared a second quarter dividend of $0.125 per share, payable on June 26 to shareholders of record on June 5.
