Apple to Elect Board by Majority After Investor Pressure

Apple Inc., bowing to pressure from the California Public Employees’ Retirement System and other shareholders, agreed to start electing its directors by majority votes rather than a plurality.

Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook, speaking today at an annual investor meeting, also said Apple was continuing “active discussions” about what to do with its $97.6 billion in cash and investments, saying the cash hoard was “more than we need to run a company.”
