2014 Annual Meeting of Shareholders at Lambeau Field

It was a beautiful day for 14,759 shareholders and guests to attend the Green Bay Packers Shareholders Meeting on July 24. General Manager Ted Thompson spoke about the team’s success on the field, as well as recent draft picks and his expectations for the coming season. Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy then updated the shareholders on the team’s success off the field and in the community. Murphy mentioned the stadium development and newly opened Packers Pro Shop and Harlan Plaza, and told shareholders that the fan experience in Green Bay remains a top priority for the organization. A variety of Packers board of directors members also spoke during the meeting about the team’s revenue and expenses, as well as marketing and sales efforts. The annual meeting brought shareholders up to speed and helped prepare them for the beginning of another season.

History of Green Bay Packers

Green Bay Packers, Inc., has been a publicly owned, nonprofit corporation since Aug. 18, 1923, when original articles of incorporation were filed with Wisconsin’s secretary of state. One of the more remarkable business stories in American history, the Green Bay Packers organization has been kept viable by its shareholders — its unselfish fans. Even more incredible, the Packers have survived and thrived during the current era, permeated by free agency and the NFL salary cap.

Fans have supported the team financially through five stock sales: 1923, 1935, 1950, 1997 and 2011.

Today 363,948 people (representing 5,020,523 shares) are owners of the iconic franchise.

The organization's fifth stock offering, which ended Feb. 29, 2012, was a tremendous success with the organization adding more than 250,000 new shareholders becoming owners. For the first time in a Packers stock offering, international sales in Canada were issued for a short while and accounted for approximately 2,000 shares.

More than 269,000 shares were sold during the offering that began Dec. 6, 2011.

All proceeds from the offering are going toward the expansion of Lambeau Field, a $143 million project that includes approximately 6,700 seats, new HD video boards, a new sound system and two new gates. The new sound system was in place for the 2011 season, the new video boards and one gate were launched in 2012 and the new seats and second gate will debut for the 2013 season.
