Our “Vote of the Week” features Medidata Solutions. Medidata received 43% vote support in 2014 after receiving 98% in 2013. Despite strong shareholder returns, the Company received a year-over-year decrease in support of 55% likely due to high relative CEO pay, significant and identical pay packages for both the CEO and the President, and a year-over-year increase in the CEO’s and President’s pay of 155% ($4.2MM) largely driven by two special awards.
