Glass Lewis backs reelection of Robyn Denholm as Chairwoman of Tesla

(Reuters) – Proxy advisory firm Glass Lewis said late on Tuesday it had recommended Tesla Inc’s (TSLA.O) investors to vote in favor of re-electing Chairwoman Robyn Denholm after having earlier opposed her re-election in June.

Tesla will hold its annual shareholder meeting on Sept. 22.
