Abano Healthcare chairman Trevor Janes has defeated an attempt to remove him from the board at a special shareholder meeting in Auckland today.

Proxy votes cast before the meeting were overwhelmingly in support of his chairmanship.

Of 16.8 million shares voted, representing 82 per cent of shares on issue, three-quarters were voted against a resolution to remove Janes from the board.

The meeting was called by Abano shareholders Peter Hutson and James Reeves, who together own 18.6 per cent of the company.

Some votes remain to be cast at the meeting.
