Description of Staggered Board of Directors. Explanation.




Definition Staggered Board of Directors. Description.

The members of a Staggered Board of Directors have terms that expire at different times. This way of replacing boards is a tactic used to prevent hostile takeovers, because a potential acquirer has to wait longer to take control of the board.

Originally, all directors were elected simultaneously at the annual shareholders meeting.

A disadvantage of this method is that it limits the shareholder control of accountability in its directors through annual elections.
