ARM HOLDINGS, the UK’s largest technology company, has beaten down a shareholder revolt after nearly a third of investors (32%) voted to reject its generous payment to its new CFO.
The spat boiled over at the company’s AGM in Cambridge yesterday when a large tranche of protestors voted to reject its remuneration report where by ex-easyJet finance chief, Chris Kennedy, was promised increased pay and bonuses of £1.9m in cash and restricted stock compensation, The Times reports.
Kennedy is set to receive a one-off cash payment of £950,000 in January 2016 and restricted stock up to the same amount, on top of his £475,000 salary.
ARM shares fell 11p to £11.14 in Friday’s trading.
