When Flemish shareholders of Fortis revolted at a heated meeting in Ghent, Belgium last month by throwing shoes, coins and even ballot boxes at Fortis board members, we were willing to dismiss it as an isolated incident. After today’s egg-throwing developments in Dublin, Ireland, however, we think it is time to declare a new, full-blown Eurotrend: shareholders venting their fury at corporations by throwing things at board members. Full details, including video of the shoe-throwing incident are available in this post on my Enforcement Action blog over at Compliance Week.
