Pinky Pants - there is a number referance. Should take you all of 5 seconds to check the authenticity of Brandos post. Dont tell me - you aint got a lot of time on your hands? lolbarkboo
Barkboo, when you quote other posters, via their posts, why do you copy and paste those posts, erasing the date? Have you ever heard of the expression 'Context is everything'? You seem to ignore that truism. It smacks of manipulation, to erase date- and thereby context. What's your problem? You're looking like a blinkx dinosaur as it is. This behavioural tic hardly improves your lowly standing here. Just a thought, as your beloved Geheimnis2 yawningly puts it.precinct14
I think its time for a new ceo who can drive the business forward. No options or salary increases.amt
Brando - was you talking about the weather? "brando69 - 12:54:28 - 10613 of 14591 BLNX i am expecting to see a sharp rise to 75 this afternoon" You dont seem to get a lot of luck with your punts - i think you bet for a good chat to be honest.....anyway, feel free to talk your hand - we like a little banter. Rocket sends his love.barkboo
the other thing is that this is going to be a charge in the accounts and a hit to the bottom line although a non cash expense anyway I got 5 e-mails off not counting bounces from Dan the Bullsh1tter who else should we be contacting, could we lobby institutions to vote against this?gowlane
STT - as I read it that was long-term incentive granted in 2013. There is a long-term incentive "opportunity" every year. The fact that the options granted in 2013 vest over 3 years is by the by - they were granted in 2013 and are now just playing out. During FY14, the long-term incentive came in the form of RSUs. So BM received no options but was given 600k RSUs (shares) - presumably this related to FY13 performance. This was consistent with the annual report comments about blinkx moving away from options and towards RSUs. Now they have come up with this new type of option and I presume this relates to FY15 performance. I guess we'll get to read about the awards made during FY15 (relating to FY14 performance) in the FY15 annual report which I hope is imminent - and maybe it will also explain the reasons for this latest type of option.1gw
1gw ... the fact of the matter is that BM is the CEO of a loss making company that has seen a catastrophic collapse in its share price ... and he is highly renumerated. He should not be awarded any options based on that performance ... not one. The management have recently been accused of unethical conduct. Bear in mind this is an industry where clients are concerned about the 'quality' of services revived from companies that operate in the industry. Blinkx has already been accused of being a culprit, with pretty devastating results. The accuser was never brought to answer the accusations in court. Elements of the original business model appear to have been switched off? The current campaign to demonstrate 'clean hands' might give the impression that they have not always been clean. I wonder about integrity? You're entitled to your view, I just don't share it.alex1621
Alex - not at all. What I'm saying is that I think you were wrong to claim "million dollar salary" in the context of "no additional options are merited". To get to a million dollars you need to include the variable elements. I believe AB has been guilty of not taking sufficiently decisive action as chairman and he should have replaced BM sometime last year. But I'm not prepared to write the non-execs off as a "bunch of money grabbers". I am prepared to believe that they are trying to do their job honestly. That job includes setting executive remuneration policies at a level where they can attract (and retain) the right people. I don't believe BM was the right person to lead blinkx out of the mess it found itself in, but the Remuneration Committee know more about him than I do and if they believed he was the right person they should set his performance targets and variable remuneration at a competitive level. I fully agree that the 7m share option award looks awful, but I can see how it could have been honestly and ethically arrived at (the targets and potential payouts would have been set a long time ago). Again, a more courageous chairman might have overridden the payout when he realised what it was going to be, given profit and share price performance, and a different CEO might have turned down the award. But unfortunately that's not the chairman and CEO we have.1gw
1gw - salary and benefits of $1.4m. And your point was? As for RocketFuel ... just another bunch of money grabbers who have failed to deliver from shareholders. WPP guy gets a lot of stick but at least shareholders have done well. So, what your really saying is that the remuneration committee might be justified on the basis that if everyone else is money grabbing and immoral, then so should they be! Not much of an argument really? We all know right and wrong ... as you can see from everyone's reaction to this ... bull and bear.alex1621
Looking at the share price today is Brian think the options kick in at 5P and not 50p, do believe we are nearer the lower pricefootball
alex - where does the "million dollar salary" come from? According to last year's annual report BM's base salary was "only" $379k, with bonus and long-term incentive taking total remuneration up to $1.4m. If I compare that with RocketFuel's latest proxy statement I see that compensation in 2014 for RocketFuel's CEO & chairman, George John was: $377k salary + $563k stock awards + $3.9m option awards, for a total of $4.9m. RocketFuel also has a "President" who got $2.9m total compensation (including $2.6m option awards) and a CFO who [edit: only joined in December 2014 and] got $1.6m total compensation. So given RocketFuel's performance in 2014 was not exactly stellar, I can sort of see the point the blinkx Remuneration Committee were making about the competitiveness of blinkx's policies.1gw
Mukherjee is a thief. Cleanse him. Now.rnpatel
if they had set the bar at a reasonable level in the context of the last 2 years, say 80p AND they had a blistering Q1 update for us, then I wouldn't really have a huge problem but 7m options for FY15 - are they having a laugh! Unfortunately not. SBM has lied more than once about this inflection point business and now has his hands in the till so personally I think he needs to gogowlane
Stocky - sometimes PR people do this on days when something distracting is trending in the media ... Greece. "Good day for bad news".alex1621
1gw ... any responsible director would conclude that given the slump in profitability, no additional options are merited. A million dollar salary is more than sufficient. If that led to his resignation then that would be a bonus for shareholders. I've concluded that the management are just a bunch of cynical people looking to enrich themselves, and really don't care whether shareholders benefit or not. The remuneration committee are not independent and shareholder aligned, sadly.I'll be interested to hear if you ever get a reply to your letter. I suspect that you will not receive a meaningful response. I think the share price will be above where it is at the moment after the Greek issue is settled, but just don't want to put money into a business run by these people. The RNS just confirmed my suspicions about management. Glad to be out.alex1621
Did they have to announce this Bonus now?stocky
Fred the shred comes to mind.stocky
alex, as you may remember I have stated that I think BM should have been shown the door many months ago and replaced with a turnaround expert with real leadership skills. Equally, I do not believe he has merited (on the basis of published information) a significant variable pay award for FY2015. My only point is that IF the remuneration committee felt that he had met the objectives in his personal contract for 2015 and merited a variable pay award of $x.ym, then I think they have made the optics much worse by making the award an option with a threshold - because to get the value they believe is justified they have to award what looks to all of us like an absolutely ridiculous number of shares under option.1gw
