Royal Male Facing Shareholder Rebellion

Friday, 20th July 2018

The investors made their feelings clear during the company’s AGM, which took place in Sheffield on Thursday. It emerged that the company’s incoming Chief Executive, Rico Back, was to be paid 16.8 percent more than the previous chief, Moya Green.

The vote against the renumeration report is one of the clearest outcomes in recent history, bigger than other previous high-profile shareholder revolts, such as the ones that took place this year against AstraZeneca and Shell. The vote that Royal Mail ran this year, however, is not binding. Companies are only required to hold a binding vote on pay policies once every three years.

Royal Mail say that while Mr Back’s base salary is higher, his fixed cash renumeration is similar to Greene’s, with the former chief receiving greater pension contributions. Mr Back will remain a resident of Zurich and will commute to the company’s headquarters regularly. He will be paying UK tax on his earnings, and will pay for his own flights to and from London, as well as paying for his own accommodation.

The turnout for the Royal Mail pay report vote was 61 percent, and the company will be facing a binding vote on pay policies at its AGM in 2019. Investors were given more say over renumeration in 2002, but such a large vote has so far been an uncommon event.
