announced yesterday that their shareholder voted overwhelmingly to accept all of the Company's proposals. This included re-electing the existing Board of Directors and appointing of Ernst & Young as the company's public accounting firm. The re-election of the board was important due to the pending EA unsolicited Bid. Of significant help to EA would have been the stockholders removing some, or all of the current board, and electing board members more friendly to a takeover.
