The Stephens Connection
You will not see the name of Jack Stephens on Arkansas
Business' ranking of executive compensation. And, unless
Stephens decides to take Stephens Holding Co. or any of its
divisions public, you will never see him on such a list.
Stephens may not be involved in all of Arkansas' 26 public
companies, but his connection and the connection of Stephens
Inc., a subsidiary of Stephens Holding Co., is impressive.
Here is a compilation of some of the Stephens connections with
five Arkansas companies. In addition, Stephens Inc. maintains a
market in the common stock of Acxiom Corp., Cannon Express Inc.
and J.B. Hunt Transport Services Inc.
Stephens Inc. also has acted as financial adviser for Arkla
Alltel Corp. -- Stephens Group Inc. owns more than 8.3 million
shares, or 9.02 percent, of Alltel Corp.
Beverly Enterprises Inc. -- Stephens Group Inc. owns more than
5.3 million shares, or 7.2 percent, of Beverly Enterprises.
Stephens Group also owns 100 percent of Beverly's preferred
American Freightways Corp. -- Stephens Inc. owns 5.4 percent of
American Freightways, according to its 1992 proxy statement.
Tyson Foods Inc. -- In 1989, Stephens Inc. offered to
underwrite a $100 million issue of Tyson stock, a move that
allowed Tyson to complete the $1.5 billion acquisition of Holly
Farms Inc. and become the country's largest poultry company.
Worthen Banking Corp. -- According to Worthen's 1992 proxy
statement, Jack Stephens owns 11 percent of Worthen stock; Bess
Stephens, Jackson T. Stephens and Vernon Giss, as trustees of
the W.R. Stephens Trust, own 13.8 percent of Worthen stock; and
Jon E.M. Jacoby, trustee for Warren A. Stephens Grantors Trust
and Warren Amerine Stephens Trust No. 2, owns 8.2 percent of
Worthen stock. In 1991, a Worthen subsidiary had outstanding a
$5 million revolving line of credit in favor of Jackson T.
A Closer Look at '93 Proxy Statements
Last year, the Securities and Exchange Commission required all
public companies to publish a graph in their 1993 proxy
statements charting how the companies' stock compared to stock
of peer corporations and also the Standard & Poor's 500 Stock
But the SEC established no strict guidelines to determine how
to make the comparison with the peer companies.
Four of the five Arkansas-based companies who have released
their 1993 proxy statements indicated their stock outperformed
peer companies and the S&P 500 Index. Hudson Foods Inc. did not
publish a comparison chart.
In other developments from the 1993 proxy statements:
* For each of the last three years, Hudson Foods has paid
$577,497 in premiums for a split-dollar life insurance policy
on James T. "Red" Hudson, chairman of the board and chief
executive officer. The beneficiaries of the policy have been
selected by executives of the Rogers-based company. Upon
Hudson's death, Hudson Foods will be reimbursed by the policy
beneficiary to the extent of premiums paid by Hudson Foods.
* Tyson Foods Inc. leases farms from members of the Tyson
family. In fiscal 1992, Tyson Foods made these lease payments:
$822,250 to Don Tyson; $364,000 to a partnership of John H.
Tyson and the estate of Randal Tyson; $1,407,001 to a
partnership of Joe Fred Starr and the children of Don Tyson,
including John H. Tyson; $734,500 to the Tyson Children
Partnership, of which John H. Tyson is a partner; $151,667 to
the estate of Randal Tyson; $27,964 to the estates of John and
Helen Tyson, of which Don Tyson is executor.
* In 1992, Tyson Foods paid entities, of which Don Tyson is a
principal, $1.7 million for the operation of a wastewater
treatment plant next to the Tyson Foods processing facility in
Nashville. It also paid Tyson Limited Partnership and another
entity in which Don Tyson is a principal $911,718 for the
operation of a wastewater treatment plant near Tyson Foods
facility in Springdale.
* TCBY Enterprises Inc. paid Brooks-Pollard Co. $186,000 for
consultation services in 1992. Hugh Pollard, a TCBY director,
is CEO of Brooks-Pollard. TCBY also paid the Rose Law Firm
$908,000 in legal fees. Hillary Rodham Clinton, a TCBY director
in 1992, was also a member of the Rose firm.
