551. Kathmandu: November 23, 2021 - see text of questions asked. See full AGM transcript lodged with ASX, something you rarely see, but couldn't find video archive. See AFR write-up - was described as a "thorn in the side" of chair David Kirk.

545. Accent Group: November 19, 10am, 2021 - see text of questions asked. No webcast archive provided.
544. Northern Star: November 18, 5pm, 2021 - see text of 13 questions asked. No webcast archive or transcript available. Old school chair Michael Chaney AO proved during the meeting he was certainly not a modern company leader, rejecting all requests for transparency and dismissing a JobKeeper question as "hopeless". He also conceded that this $12 billion gold mining giant which owns 100% of Kalgoorlie's super pit was not very diverse - 8 of the 9 directors live in Perth.
543. Humm Group: November 18, 2021, 4pm - see text of 13 questions asked of the now rebranded Flexigroup directors, plus this 67 minute webcast. Was a thorough but fair grilling given the Andrew Abercrombie chaired outfit has performed poorly for investors of late.
542. AMA Group: November 18, 2.30pm, 2021 - see text of 16 questions asked of the battling car repairs giant which tucked into $65 million of Jobkeeper, making the top 10 of ASX listed company recipients. The external candidate Peter Taylor polled less than 5%, mainly because he's currently suing the company. This 83 minute webcast is available and they didn't even name the challenging candidate in these voting results.
541. Mineral Resources: November 18, 12.30pm, 2021 - see text of questions asked. Billionaire CEO Chris Ellison reminded me of former Oxiana boss Owen Hegarty in his hey day. A real evangelist prone to making overblown claims. Hence the importance of this full 26 page transcript which has been commendably produced. However, the transcript didn't include the text of the spruiking corporate videos. If you go to the end of this 1 hour and 45 minute webcast, you'll see the corporate video finishes with the following lines: "The future for Mineral Resources is unlimited, we are the gold at the end of the rainbow." Hmmm, should ASIC and the ASX be discouraging such boosterism?
540. Mirvac: November 18, 11am, 2021 - as so often happens, the ASA representative and I were the only people asking questions. See this transcript and watch the webcast of the 64 minute meeting. There were 9% protest votes against chair John Mulcahy and James Millar given both have been on the board since 2009. Unlike with Dexus, Goodman and Charter Hall, there was no big remuneration protest related to excessively generous incentive grants to already wealthy CEOs. Might that be because Mirvac's CEO, Susan Lloyd-Hurwitz, is female and doesn't need a top-up given that she's already made about $20 million from her long term incentive scheme.
539. Freedom Foods: November 18, 2021: see text of 6 questions asked. Listen to 58 minute webcast or read transcript. I'm down 90% on my $500 investment and this has been an absolute shocker steered by the Perich family, which is a related party milk supplier.
538. Bluescope Steel: November 18, 2021: see text of 7 questions asked. Watch webcast. Chairman John Bevan was Dr No as he rejected the transcript request, rejected disclosing the voting result by shares and shareholders and wouldn't even say what the proxy advisers were recommending. However, investors are happy because all resolutions passed with more than 97% of the voted shares in favour.
537. Altium: November 18, 9.30am, 2021: see text of 6 questions asked. Watch webcast of 2 hour and 19 minute meeting which was very much a show-case for this fabulous global player in the software for electric circuit boards. The Q&A didn't start until 90 minutes in but at least we got all the proxies first and there were big protest with 30% against the NED fees rise thanks to an ISS recommendation which was followed by the offshore index fund donkey vote (Blackrock, Vanguard and State Street). There was an 8% against vote chairman Sam Weiss and 40% against the constitutional tweak to allow for virtual meetings, meaning that it was defeated. See voting results. Also, big kudos to chairman Weiss for disclosing the for and against votes by shareholder on key resolutions during the meeting This was done on the fly after a written question, plus in the formal results.
536. Seek: November 17, 2021 - see text of 11 questions asked. See voting results where there were 3 Ian Narev rem protests ranging between 14-17%. See webcast.

531. Adore Beauty: November 11, 2021: see list of 8 questions submitted. No material protest votes. Promise webcast archive but it goes to a dead link.
530. Lendlease: November 11, 2021: see list of 19 questions submitted. Watch webcast and read transcript.
529. BHP: November 11, 2021: see list of 9 questions submitted which were all asked in full. BHP still isn't publishing a full archive of the webcast or a transcript, presumably because they don't want to promote the climate activists who were giving them stick.
528. Charter Hall: November 11, 2021: see list of 14 questions lodged, 12 of which were asked. See voting results with 22% against rem report and 38.7% against retention bonus for the CEO. See 72 minute webcast archive.
527. Estia Health: November 11, 2021: See list of 18 questions asked and voting results where constitutional amendment to move to online AGMs was defeated. This AGM history suggests they've never published a webcast archive.
