Wal-Mart shareholders’ meeting coverage on June 4

By: 19 May 2010 3 Comments

Whether you love Wal-Mart, hate it or are just indifferent toward the corporation, there’s little denying that the company has a massive impact on this state’s economy.

The annual shareholders’ meeting is a big deal in the Natural State, so we at First Arkansas News have made sure that our loyal readers can keep up with what’s going on with Wal-Mart this year.

On June 4, make sure to stop by for live (that’s right — live) coverage of the shareholders’ meeting. The intrepid Lana Flowers — who just left the Morning News in Rogers after working there for close to a couple of decades — has volunteered to cover the meeting for us this year. Yes, she’s joined the First Arkansas News team, and we’re tickled to have her with us.

Sure, she’ll write some in-depth articles about the meeting — she’s going to cover everything from the nuts-and-bolts business stuff to the entertainment and events surrounding the annual expedition to Fayetteville, Ah,  but she’ll also be sending live updates via Twitter that will appear through the event right here. Now, you don’t want to miss that, do you?

Want to check Wal-Mart’s latest annual report to get an idea about the company’s finances? Well, we’ve got that, too — just click here to download the report and comb through it until your heart’s content, ace.

Meanwhile, if you haven’t yet subscribed to First Arkansas News through email updates, Twitter or our RSS feed, why not head over to the right sidebar and click the icon of your choice so you can take care of that? You can also hit that Facebook icon on the right sidebar and keep up with us through that site, too.

Rest assured that this little ole blog is staffed with volunteers who know a thing or two about how to cover news in this state. Stop by often to see what’s new and, of course, watch us grow.

    It’s Walmart now. They tried double branding, with Wal-Mart as the overall company and Walmart as a store. However, the retailer now prefers Walmart in all cases. That’s a Big W, little m, no squiggly.
    But, I bet they still do the “Give me a squiggly!” and the hip shake at the shareholders’ meeting June 4.

    Odd. The DOW appears to still list the company as “Wal-Mart” and it appears to be listed with the SEC as Wal-Mart. The question, then, is should we used the company’s preferred name or the legal name under which the entity is listed (as of a May 18 filing, the SEC still recognized the company as “Wal-Mart”)? I’ll see what’s going on when I get back from Texas.

    Yes, it still is incorporated as Wal-Mart but their branding is Walmart. I go with Walmart.
