Tesla's Board Fires Back at ISS Over Elon Musk's Compensation Package, Accusing Proxy Firm of Coming to 'Wrong Conclusion'

  • last month
Tesla's board of directors has responded to proxy advisory firm ISS, which recently urged investors to vote against ratifying Elon Musk's 2018 pay package ahead of Tesla's upcoming annual shareholders meeting. In a four-page letter, Tesla's board argues that ISS came to the "wrong conclusion" about what ratifying Musk's compensation package entails and made incorrect claims recommending shareholders vote against it. ISS said Musk's $56 billion compensation package was "excessive," it's unclear if it will increase his focus on Tesla, but Tesla's board disagrees with this assessment.
