Activision Blizzard Shareholders Urged Not to Re-Elect Bobby Kotick and other Board Members in Letter

The SOC investment group has released a letter urging shareholders of Activision Blizzard to vote against the re-election of current board members, including director Bobby Kotick, ?at the company. Activision Blizzard has been marred with claims of sexual harassment and unsafe work conditions since last year, which included a walkout by many of its staff in protest.

SOC urges shareholders not to re-elect Activision Blizzard board members amid controversy

As spotted by gamesindustry.biz, the letter urges shareholders to vote against current CEO Bobby Kotick and other board members?Brian Kelly, Robert Morgado, Robert Corti, Barry Meyer, and Peter Nolan in the upcoming June 21 Activision Blizzard annual meeting. The letter cites that each of these board members has failed to recognize any of the issues at Activision Blizzard. The letter read:

“We urge you to vote AGAINST the re-election of Directors Robert Kotick, Brian Kelly, Robert Morgado,

Robert Corti, Barry Meyer, and Peter Nolan at Activision Blizzard Inc.’s (“Activision” or “Company”)

annual meeting on June 21, 2022. Each of these directors failed either to recognize that Activision

Blizzard for years maintained unsafe workplaces exhibiting frequent and repeated sexual harassment,

sexual assault, and gender discrimination, or to appropriately address the Company’s “frat house”

culture once it was publicly revealed by the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing

(“DFEH”) in its pending lawsuit, which was filed in July 2021.”

This is not the first letter released by the SOC investment group surrounding Activision in recent months. In April, they asked shareholders to vote against Microsoft’s proposed acquisition of the publisher. The deal was approved later that month.
