The New York Society of Security Analysts' ongoing forum on Amazon.com has scheduled two upcoming meetings to review candidates for Amazon's board of directors. At its April 26 meeting, the forum, which is co-sponsored by investment banker Gary Lutin, will draft a list of questions to pose to candidates. The forum plans to give director candidates time to address those questions at its May 10 meeting.
Amazon will release its list of director candidates in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing later this month. The Seattle-based company will hold its annual meeting May 23. The NYSSA forum has been sharply critical of the financial information Amazon has provided to investors. In the last two months, it sent letters to venture capitalist John Doerr and Amazon's other directors, asking them to encourage the company to provide more information on its financial standing.
