“We find it particularly gratifying that the shareholders rejected Dolphin Limited Partnership’s campaign against the company,” infoUSA chairman/CEO Vin Gupta said in a statement. “Plainly, the shareholders saw through Dolphin’s allegations.”
Sixty percent of the shareholders also approved an equity incentive plan and 91 percent ratified the selection of KPMG LLP as Omaha, NE-based infoUSA’s independent auditors.
