Submit Share Kenny AlexanderGVC has agreed to speak with shareholders over remuneration packages for its senior team after one of the biggest investor rebellions of 2019 so far.At the company’s annual general meeting (AGM) this week, 42 per cent of investor votes were against pay plans for its leading executives, including CEO Kenny Alexander. The pay plans were therefore passed with 58 per cent of the vote, but GVC has since agreed to talk with shareholders following the latest reaction to the remuneration document.It is the second year in a row that GVC has been embarrassed by shareholder protests, after 44 per cent of votes were cast against its pay schemes at last year’s AGM.Alexander has taken the value of what is now the UK’s biggest betting operator, whose brands include Ladbrokes, Coral, partypoker, Sportingbet, bwin and Betdaq, to a market cap of £3.6 billion. He had tried to avoid such a revolt a week ago by proposing to have his basic salary cut from £950,000 to £800,000. GVC’s recent annual report showed that he took home a total of £19.1m last year, but this included £16.4m from the firm’s acquisition of bwin.party in 2016 as “legacy awards” – something that will no longer form part of its remuneration framework.Jane Anscombe, Chairwoman of GVC’s Remuneration Committee, explained: “We understand that some shareholders ultimately felt unable to support the remuneration report, in part due to our legacy arrangements, which going forward no longer form part of our remuneration framework.“We engaged extensively with shareholders ahead of the annual general meeting and would like to thank them for their helpful and constructive input. We will be engaging with shareholders further in the coming months to listen and reflect on their views on remuneration at GVC.” Share StumbleUpon

A Philadelphia sports radio host threw his headset and started yelling at his producer Tuesday after a discussion about a viral social media video turned heated.Mike Missanelli of “The Mike Missanelli Show” was dead set on supporting Amy Cooper, the woman filmed in Central Park last weekend telling police a black man filming her for not following park rules was threatening her life. There was no evidence of an attack; to the contrary, the man spoke in a calm tone of voice throughout the encounter. Once video of the 911 call circulated on Twitter and Facebook, Cooper was fired from her job at Franklin Templeton due to the firm’s zero-tolerance racism policy. Oh, when Karens take a walk with their dogs off leash in the famous Bramble in NY’s Central Park, where it is clearly posted on signs that dogs MUST be leashed at all times, and someone like my brother (an avid birder) politely asks her to put her dog on the leash. pic.twitter.com/3YnzuATsDm— Melody Cooper (@melodyMcooper) May 25, 2020Missanelli, who is white, insisted Cooper had an argument in claiming she was being attacked. Producer Tyrone Johnson, who is black, and sports update anchor Natalie Egenolf disagreed.”You’re looking at it like a layperson. I’m looking at like an attorney,” Missanelli told Johnson and Egenolf at one point.Once the show went to break, Missanelli could be seen on the simulcast losing his temper.Wow!! This just happened. @MikeMiss975 just lost his cool a bit. @975TheFanatic @NatalieEgenolf pic.twitter.com/GFSTwWCUQq— Jay McKenna (@redbirdjay) May 26, 2020@MikeMiss975 you’re embarrassing yourself pic.twitter.com/RE5TbI7PQU— Tom McCarthy (@Tmccarthy54) May 26, 2020MORE: NCAA grants waiver to UCLA transferPhillyVoice spoke to an internal source in its write-up of the matter. The person blasted Missanelli as immature. “Mike tried to pull the, ‘I’m a lawyer’ s—. Tyrone then read him the actual law,” an employee told PhillyVoice. “Natalie is agreeing with [Tyrone], so now Mike has been embarrassed and has the rest of his show ‘ganging’ up on him. And he threw a temper tantrum because he’s a f—ing child.”Missanelli was not on the air Wednesday. The reason for his absence has not been explained.He was previously fired from a radio station after an alleged physical altercation with a part-time producer and suspended for using homophobic language.
