Snap Judgment: The Legal and Investment Issues Associated with Non-Voting StockSnap Judgment: The Legal and Investment Issues Associated with Non-Voting StockGore Recital Hall, CFA<p> </p><p><em><em>Co-sponsored with Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP</em></em></p><p>While dual-class stock has existed at companies for some time, Snap’s issuance of non- voting stock has raised new concerns. The corporate governance and legal implications have been at the forefrontof the investor, regulator and governance conversation for the better part of the past year. Using Snap as a backdrop, we invite you to a roundtable discussion on issues and questions regarding the use of stock with limited or no voting rights, such as: the benefits and risks posed by such shares; the effect on good corporate governance; the effect on capital formation; and whether the courts’ application of the business judgement rule to director conduct in such organizations remains appropriate. These are issues that apply both to companies with non-voting shares and to dual-class stock companies. This roundtable, comprised of experts from all sides of the debate, will discuss these and other related issues. </p><p>The confirmed participants are:</p><blockquote><p>• <strong>Donna F. Anderson</strong>, Vice President and Head of Global Corporate Governance,   T. Rowe Price</p></blockquote><blockquote><p>• <strong><span aria-hidden="true"></span>David J.
