The proposals submitted to a stockholder vote at the meeting were described in detail in the Company's Definitive Proxy Statement for the 2021 Annual Meeting, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 28, 2021 (the "Proxy Statement"). Stockholders present at the virtual meeting or by proxy represented 222,899,335 shares of common stock (or 90% of the outstanding shares of common stock of the Company as of April 12, 2021, the record date for the 2021 Annual Meeting).
At the 2021 Annual Meeting, stockholders elected all of the Company's nominees for director, approved the compensation of the Company's named executive officers in 2020 ("say-on-pay" vote), and ratified the appointment of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm for 2021.
The final voting results regarding each proposal are set forth below:
