SoftBank Group Corp. (9984.T) CEO Doubles His Pay
The CEO of SoftBank Group’s Vision Fund, Rajeev Misra, more than doubled his pay for the year ended March, despite the investment fund having lost $17 billion over the period.
Misra, who is also a member of SoftBank’s board, will receive 1.6 billion yen ($14.9 million) in pay and benefits, the japanese technology group said in a notice to shareholders on Friday. that’s over double the 752 million yen he received the previous year.
The decision to grant Misra a large pay raise will likely stir controversy at the company’s shareholders meeting on June 25. This year, SoftBank is asking shareholders to participate via livestreaming, instead of coming to a venue, to stop the spread of COVID-19.
Misra was tapped by Masayoshi Son, SoftBank’s chairman and CEO, 3 years ago to head the nearly $100 billion Vision Fund, which Son had positioned as the group’s new core business. however its portfolio has been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic, causing its internal rate of return, a key measure of performance, to swing to minus 1%, even after including a 7% bond-like payment that outside investors receive as a part of their commitment to the fund.
Misra additionally held 4.7 million SoftBank shares, according to the notice. The Vision Fund had 474 staff, up from 297 a year ago.
The compensation makes Misra the second highest-paid SoftBank board member after Marcelo Claure, former chairman of U.S. telecom company Sprint, who is currently executive chairman of WeWork, the U.S. coworking office space company that SoftBank has a stake in. Claure can receive 2.1 billion yen, up from 1.8 billion a year ago.
Son will receive 209 million yen, down slightly from a year ago.
In total, SoftBank listed six board members with pay over 100 million yen, who will receive a total of 6.4 billion yen. That was down from seven members for the previous year, who received 9.3 billion yen, with Simon Segars, CEO of U.K. chip designer Arim, excluded from this year’s list.
The figure includes salaries bonuses and stock compensation.
