Halliburton Annual Meeting of Stockholders and Dividend Declaration

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Halliburton (NYS: HAL) announced today its stockholders elected all eleven nominees to the board of directors and ratified the selection of KPMG LLP as principal independent public accountants for 2013 at its annual meeting of stockholders in Houston, Texas. The stockholders approved, on an advisory basis, the compensation of Halliburton's named executive officers and approved an amendment to Halliburton's Stock and Incentive Plan. The stockholders voted against a stockholder proposal regarding human rights risk assessment. Management recommended against the stockholder proposal as it believes the company's existing human rights policy is sufficient.
