Electronic Arts Shareholders Voted Against Paying Bonuses To The Company's Management
Electronic Arts shareholders voted against granting additional bonuses and bonuses to the company's executives.
It's worth noting that 68% of shareholders voted against the proposed strategy. According to it, Electronic Arts CEO Andrew Wilson should receive a $21 million bonus at the end of 2020, chief operating and financial officer Blake Jorgensen - $19 million, and Chief Studio Director Laura Mile - $16 million.
It is worth noting that the decision of the shareholders ' meeting is a recommendation and, therefore, the management of Electronic Arts may well disagree with it and approve the strategy for paying bonuses.
Earlier, Activision Blizzard shareholders could not make such a decision, despite criticism regarding the difference in payments to ordinary employees of the company and top managers.
According to available information, the total amount of bonuses that the head of Activision Blizzard Bobby Kotick has received since 2016 was $100 million. However, some employees of Blizzard Entertainment decided not to visit the company's cafe because of high prices.
