Shell Retention Bonuses AGM Vote: “Together with those who abstained from the vote, a total of 49.5 percent didn’t support the bonuses.”

A total of 31.76 percent of voting shareholders rejected a plan to award Malcolm Brinded, Linda Cook and Peter Voser bonus payments of one million euros ($1.57 million), according to Shell's Web site. Together with those who abstained from the vote, a total of 49.5 percent didn't support the bonuses. The proposal would have been rejected if 50 percent plus one vote had opposed the bonuses.

Paying for staying: Retention Bonuses

This week, Royal Dutch Shell forced through a proposal to pay bonuses to three executives just to stay in their jobs, even though investors holding almost half its voting shares failed to back the plan. Shell's scheme for the three frontrunners to become chief executive next year is a particularly unappealing example of the genre. There was not enough consultation with shareholders. This reflects badly on the board, whether it realised the hostility that might be provoked or was oblivious to it.
