LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — May 21, 2010 — At its quarterly
meeting held on May 17, 2010, the Acxiom Corporation (Nasdaq: ACXM)
board of directors nominated current directors Jerry D. Gramaglia, Clark
M. Kokich and Kevin M. Twomey for election to the board at the 2010
annual meeting of stockholders scheduled for August 2, 2010. These three
directors have served on the board since 2009, 2009 and 2008,
respectively. Directors of Acxiom are divided into three classes, each
serving staggered, three-year terms. If elected, the new term for these
directors would expire in 2013. The record date for the annual meeting
is June 7, 2010.
Also at the May 17 meeting, directors Mary L. Good and Stephen M.
Patterson, whose terms expire at the 2010 annual meeting, advised the
board that they do not wish to be re-nominated for another term. They
have served as directors of the company since 2004 and 2000,
respectively. Director Thomas F. (Mack) McLarty, III, who has served on
the board since 1999 and whose term expires at the 2011 annual meeting,
also advised the board of his intent to resign from the board effective
as of the date of the 2010 annual meeting. Each of these directors is
leaving the board for their own personal reasons and not as a result of
any disagreements with management.
Commenting on the departures, Michael J. Durham, non-executive
chairman of the board, said, "On behalf of the company and the members
of the board of directors, I want to thank these directors for their
loyal and dedicated service. The experience and judgment of these
individuals have been of great value to Acxiom over the years. We will
miss their counsel and their leadership."
