Genting Singapore on Thursday announced it has disregarded a resolution which would see an increase to chairman Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay’s performance share scheme (PSS) limit.
The resolution came out of an EGM held in February, which later attracted queries from the stock exchange, questioning why Lim’s remuneration was increasing despite profit falling 90 percent in the year.
Despite giving a solid explanation for the reasons for the PSS increase, Genting ultimately disregarded the resolution made during the EGM, as it became aware that GOHL, who voted in the resolution should have actually abstained from voting due to its links with the chairman.
As a result, Genting said it will not regard the resolution as being approved.
The world is bouncing back, or at least coming to grips with the fact that going forward not much will be the same as before. Commendably, this industry quickly understood the need to adapt to a new normal, and that the days of targeting the low hanging fruit of the VIP sector are gone.
Over the years, many of the answers have been remarkably prescient in their forecasts for the near-term direction of Asia’s gaming industry. However, we can safely say that no one came anywhere close to guessing what 2020 may have had in store.
