Directors must have stake in firms to prove interestOn 11 Sep 2001 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Nearly a third of all companies in the FTSE 100 set a minimum level ofshares their directors must own. Research by consultants Will-iam M Mercer shows that UK companies arefollowing the lead of their American counterparts by requiring top executivesto own a substantial shareholding in the companies they help run. It shows that 32 of the top 100 firms have a minimum share requirement fordirectors, with eight of those companies introducing the policy last year and afurther six following suit this year. Typically the value of shares owned by directors will be between one andthree times their salary, which can usually be built up over a period of threeto five years. “Increasingly, top directors are required to have a significantpersonal stake in their company, since this can act as a motivator fordelivering shareholder value,” said Belinda Hudson, European principal atWilliam M Mercer. “Shareholding policies help counter the claims that option plans are aone-way bet and that executives can’t lose. Indeed, the recent fall in shareprices has hit many directors quite hard.” www.wmmercer.com Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos.

A coastal storm that will continue to hit Ocean City on Thursday morning could bring two inches of rain, winds stronger than 35 mph and minor tidal flooding.High tide on Thursday morning on the flood-prone bay side of Ocean City comes at 9:32 a.m., and residents may want to consider moving vehicles to high ground, particularly if the tide coincides with a period of heavy rain.The strongest effects from a system that will affect the entire mid-Atlantic region will be felt closer to the coast.The heaviest rain from the storm is expected to fall Thursday morning. More than two inches is possible along the coast.Easterly winds will increase on Wednesday, gusting over 35 mph at times.The onshore flow could produce minor tidal flooding along the entire coast. “Minor” tidal flooding typically covers low-lying streets in Ocean City.Check the tide level in real time (NAVD 88 scale) from the Bayside Center on the bay at Fifth Street.The strong northeast winds should generate 7- to 10-foot swells offshore, according to the marine forecast.

Irish miller Odlums has indicated that its flour prices will increase by over E90 (£61) a tonne.Odlums said it would aim to keep prices to a minimum, but added that the cost of raw mate- rials had surged.The company said that, with the global harvest season well under way, it is already clear that prices worldwide for the 2007 crop will be significantly higher than for the previous year.”Shoppers will be hit by these prices, as wheat crops will increase in price by at least 30%”, it said in a statement.This comes at a time when demand continues to grow and global stocks of wheat are at their lowest level since the 1960s, falling from 125m tonnes to a current level of 111m tonnes, it said.Earlier this month, Irish food group Origin Enterprises paid €35m to acquire the 50% shareholding of Odlums previously owned by Greencore.
WILTON – The Wilton Selectboard was joined Tuesday night by Regional School Unit 9 Board of Director, Cherieann Harrison, who presented updates on how the district has allocated funds from Covid grants received earlier in the year, as well as upcoming budgetary concerns. Since the last school board update in September, the children and staff have returned safely to school with new safety measures in place and a budget to distribute electronic devices and food staples to each child enrolled. Where the schools have seen a negative impact from the pandemic is in their enrollment numbers, which then influence the state funding received.“Right now, we’re at a two year average loss of 105 students. This year alone, we lost 9 percent of our student enrollment, and the district estimates a $1-1.3 million reduction from state subsidies next year due to this drop. This will impact not just next year, but the year after,” said Harrison.Once schools recover from the enrollment plunges of the pandemic, the numbers that the state takes into account for funding will still reflect the old enrollment rates. While this will prove to be a challenge in the coming years to recover from, Harrison said that the district is luckier than some.The RSU 9 Board has established a savings fund for emergencies, looking ahead for future financial strains as a result of Covid. The official budget for the 2021 school year is set to come in February. RSU 9 has also appointed an interim Superintendent, Monique Poulin, who will be starting on Dec. 28. The school board will be hosting a search committee in the spring to find a permanent Superintendent.There is an upcoming rehabilitation project taking place on Depot St, focusing on the restructuring of the sidewalks between the intersection at Academy Hill down to the former Forster Mill. There is no estimated start date yet, as the project will require the town to apply for the Municipal Partnership Initiative Program, which is a collaboration between the state and the town, in which the town pays for 60 percent of the proposed project. The Selectboard unanimously approved the motion to move forward with obtaining engineering plans and applying for the grant program.Health Officer Michael Parker presented the revised version of the Marijuana Ordinance Plan.“We tried to let the free market decide what’s going on out there, not the town,” said Parker. He will be taking the final notes from the Selectboard and moving forward with a final draft.There will be a recorded presentation from the engineers designing the Wilson Lake retaining wall that will be held and posted on Dec. 29.“They ended up with a much simpler plan than they originally proposed,” said Town Manager Rhonda Irish, who will be hosting the workshop.Board member Tom Saviello, who has seen the two drawings said that the proposal are similar to the design from the 1920s. The main difference with the updated plan for the retaining wall project is additional parking.In other business, the Board heard from Irish that there is a new law in effect that will be impacting part time workers, that dictates that for every 40 hours worked, one hour of part time paid time off is earned.
