Wintergreen Advisers holds over 2.5 million shares of Coca Cola stock. Based on Winters’ research, Coke “has all of the attributes of a wonderful long-term investment.” However Coke recently proposed a 2014 Equity Plan to shareholders, to be voted on at its annual meeting. As is his practice Winters and his team read the entire proposal, including the fine print, and discovered it had an executive compensation plan Winters describes as excessive and a “raw deal for shareholders.”
