  • Sports Direct Readies Bonus

    British sporting retailer Sports Direct said that it would "attempt to reintroduce" a bonus plan to award a one-off windfall worth more than £40M ($64M) to Founder Mike Ashley after company shareholders "rejected a similar measure in September," according to Mark Wembridge of the FINANCIAL TIMES. The revised plan has the potential to award Ashley 10 million shares -- worth £40M at Thursday's share value -- which would rest in '18 if performance targets are met. Sports Direct CEO Dave Forsey said that the group would "put a new bonus proposal, altered to address shareholder caveats, to investors in January."
