    1. Shari Redstone’s Endgame for CBS and Viacom is Clear in a New Complaint

      Shari Redstone’s Endgame for CBS and Viacom is Clear in a New Complaint

      The bitterest boardroom battle in recent memory has turned on a series of slights, verbal jousting and a physical altercation involving hands on a face that could determine the futures of both CBS and Viacom. Shari Redstone, the controlling owner of CBS, has filed a complaint against the broadcaster and its chief executive Les Moonves in Delaware Chancery court, outlining her version of events in a saga that has pit the former allies against each other...

      Tesla’s Board Sounds the Retweet

      Elon Musk’s recent Twitter-lashing of the media has prompted comparisons to President Donald Trump’s “fake news” obsession. For me, though, its sheer variety – encompassing Soviet propaganda, a new Model Y launch date, the Theranos scandal, the lameness of car emoji, and much more – instead brought Steve Bannon to mind, particularly his media strategy:  “flood the zone with shit.”...

    4. CEO Pay Ratio Disclosures Provide Little More Than Noise for Investors

      CEO Pay Ratio Disclosures Provide Little More Than Noise for Investors

      The new requirement for companies to report how much more their CEOs made than the typical employee may have produced some “oohs” and “aahs,” but that’s about it. If there is anything to glean from all the pay ratio disclosures, it’s that there needs to be more consistency in how they are calculated and reported before they can be useful to investors...

    5. Can Leslie Moonves’ Audacious Strategy Swing the Votes in CBS’ Favor?

      Can Leslie Moonves’ Audacious Strategy Swing the Votes in CBS’ Favor?

      Sumner Redstone seized control of Viacom in a hostile takeover in 1987. He then made sure that no other corporate raider could take it from him, dividing the company’s stock into voting and nonvoting shares. Thirty years later, Redstone’s absolute control is under threat not from an external foe but from within...

      World's 50 Greatest Leaders

      Though it seems unlikely, Tim Cook and Indira Jaising have something in common besides membership in Fortune’s 2018 ranking of the World’s Greatest Leaders. Cook (No. 14) is the wealthy CEO of Apple, the most valuable publicly traded company on earth; Jaising (No. 20) is an Indian lawyer who cofounded an NGO called Lawyers Collective, which promotes human rights issues. Yet they share this trait: Both have multiplied their organizations’ effectiveness by harnessing the power of unbundling.

      Fortis Directors Deserve a Discharge Slip

      Fortis Healthcare Ltd. has to admit a new owner to keep the lights on. Before it does, though, India’s second-largest hospital chain must write four of its board members a discharge slip.

      The country’s serious fraud office and the stock-market regulator are investigating Fortis even as it tries to sell itself to one of five serious suitors, which include Malaysian, Chinese and homegrown Indian buyers, as well as American private equity...

      Forget Golf. Women’s Endowment Roles Can Lead to the Boardroom

      (Bloomberg Markets) -- The old boys’ network is costing university endowments money. Investment committees that have female majorities typically generate higher returns than committees that don’t. “There’s something about the way women lead and the way they collaborate,” says Jolyne Caruso-FitzGerald, a 35-year Wall Street veteran and chair of the board of trustees at Barnard College, a women’s school in Manhattan. “There’s this intimidation factor on mostly male boards...

      In Europe, Misbehaving CEOs Pay Millions in Fines and Go to Jail, and We Need to Start Doing the Same in the US
      • There have been a number of recent cases in which high-profile CEOs have been publicly penalized with fines and jail-time by European governments.
      • CEOs that are guilty of similar transgressions have been held less accountable in the U.S.
      • America would arguably benefit from adopting the European approach, forcing the government to play a more judicious role in punishing offending businesspeople...

      Fortune 500 CEOs are Paid From Double to 5,000 Times More Than Their Employees

      Transparency on executive pay shows how the other half lives. Chief executive pay in the U.S. is among the highest in the world, according to a new report by the staff of Keith Ellison, a Democratic congressman for Minnesota. U.S. publicly-listed companies have begun releasing how much their CEOs make compared to the rest of their staff. The revelations are required under a 2015 rule in the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010...

    12. CEO Pay and Performance Often Don’t Match Up

      CEO Pay and Performance Often Don’t Match Up

      The best-paid CEOs don’t necessarily run the best-performing companies. Corporate boards have tried for years to tie chief executive compensation to the results they deliver. The better the company and its shareholders do, the more the top boss should be paid, or so the pay-for-performance mantra goes.
