Almost a month after P&G claimed that activist investor Nelson Peltz's Trian Partners lost the 'too-close-to-call' proxy vote, the independent inspector has adjudged the recount in favor of Trian by 43,000 votes, according to CNBC's David Faber.

Independent inspector of election for PG proxy vote has found that Trian nominee Nelson Peltz has won proxy fight by 43k votes-sources.

The P&G stock is up almost 3% after hours…

Faber later added that P&G can still challenge this result.

Trian has apparently won the recount for a board seat at $PG by 43000 votes. Huge victory for Nelson Peltz. PG can still challenge. Story still developing.

Trian has $3.5 billion invested in P&G and the margin of victory (43,000 shares at $89) was just $3.8 million.

Trian has issued a press release urgeing the company to accept the independent inspector's decision…

Trian Fund Management, L.P. (“Trian”), whose investment funds beneficially own approximately $3.5 billion of shares of The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE: PG) (“P&G”), today announced that, according to the official preliminary voting tabulation by IVS Associates, Inc., the independent Inspector of Elections, P&G shareholders have elected Nelson Peltz to P&G’s Board.

Trian issued the following statement on today’s results:

“Trian greatly appreciates the support we have received, and we are gratified that the Independent Inspector’s tabulation shows that shareholders have elected Nelson Peltz to the P&G Board of Directors. The Inspector’s report represents an independent, careful tabulation of all proxies and ballots submitted to the Inspector by both P&G and Trian. Trian strongly urges P&G to accept the Inspector’s tabulation and not waste further time and shareholder money contesting the outcome of the Annual Meeting. Shareholders have voted, and they have indicated that they want Nelson Peltz to join the Board.

Nelson Peltz looks forward to working collaboratively in the boardroom with the other members of the Board and management team to revitalize P&G. Trian believes Nelson Peltz’s extensive experience and track record of improving performance at consumer companies will bring significant value to the P&G Board and help create the right environment for generating breakthrough ideas. Working together with management and the Board, he will help address the challenges P&G is facing. Trian believes strongly in P&G’s potential and our goal is to see it once again grow market share and deliver sustainable long-term value for the benefit of all stakeholders. Nelson Peltz will be a strong voice for shareholders in the boardroom, and we are confident it will lead to a brighter future for P&G.”
