Updating our Shareholders on Microsoft’s Corporate Governance

This week, the Governance and Nominating Committee of Microsoft’s board of directors published its annual governance letter to shareholders. The letter includes updates on developments in the Company’s corporate governance framework over the past year. In the letter, the Committee discusses:

•  The addition of two new board members
•  The latest installment in our director video series
•  A corporate citizenship update, including recent recognition of our policies and practices
•  Changes to streamline the board committee structure

I believe these developments exemplify our commitment to building on a strong foundation of existing governance practices to advance the long-term interests of our Company and its shareholders and other stakeholders.
