WHIPPANY, N.J., May 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Suburban Propane Partners, L.P. (NYSE: SPH), a nationwide distributor of propane, fuel oil and related products and services, as well as a marketer of natural gas and electricity, today announced the results from its 2018 Tri-Annual Meeting of Unitholders held on May 15, 2018.
At the meeting, the Unitholders re-elected to the Board of Supervisors, for a three-year term, all eight nominees proposed by the Board:
Harold R. Logan, Jr.
John Hoyt Stookey
Lawrence C. Caldwell
Matthew J. Chanin
Terence J. Connors
William M. Landuyt
Michael A. Stivala
At the meeting, the Unitholders also approved: (1) the ratification of the appointment of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as the Partnership's independent registered public accounting firm for the Partnership's 2018 fiscal year; (2) the Partnership's 2018 Restricted Unit Plan authorizing the issuance of up to 1,800,000 common units pursuant to awards granted under that Plan; and (3) an advisory amendment resolution approving executive compensation (commonly referred to as "Say-on-Pay").
Because the Partnership's agreement of limited partners provides for Tri-Annual Meetings of the Unitholders (once every three years), no proposal regarding the frequency of Say-on-Pay resolutions was presented to the Unitholders at the meeting. The Partnership will, for so long as required by applicable law, include a Say-on-Pay proposal at each Tri-Annual Meeting.
