June 10 (Bloomberg) -- General Motors Co., on the heels of claiming a renewed focus on transparency, prohibited reporters from e-mailing from within its shareholder meeting.

The company allowed reporters into its annual meeting while requiring them to turn off their cellular phones in a departure from previous gatherings.

Reporters were allowed to send e-mails from another room nearby that the automaker set up at its Detroit headquarters for the media gathered to watch the meeting on monitors. There, GM served coffee and bagels and prohibited reporters from photographing or videotaping the monitors.

The company had last week pledged to be more transparent after the release of an internal report on why it took more than a decade to recall 2.59 million cars linked to 13 deaths.
