    Shareholders narrowly approve UK builder Persimmon's management pay plan

    Of the votes cast, 51.5 percent were in favour of Persimmon's Advisory Remuneration Report and 48.5 percent against, the company said in a statement. Persimmon introduced a long-term incentive plan in 2012 that could have seen the firm's top management, including Chief Executive Jeff Fairburn, make a profit of more than 200 million pounds on share options. Following widespread criticism, that scheme was scaled back in February with changes made to the 2012 plan's entitlements for CEO Fairburn, finance chief Mike Killoran and managing director Dave Jenkinson.

    Is Persimmon pay fury built on shaky foundations?

    There was disgust when, at the end of last year, it emerged that the chief executive, chief financial officer and managing director of Persimmon (Frankfurt: 882058 - news) , the UK's largest housebuilder, were in line for multi-million pound pay-outs related to long-term incentive schemes. The company's chairman and the head of the remuneration committee resigned after admitting the scheme was badly designed and should have included a cap on bonuses - while Jeff Fairburn, the CEO, said he would give away part of his expected £100m pay-out to charity following an outcry from politicians. The issue is likely to flare up again when, the week after next, Persimmon holds its annual meeting.

    Inflation relief helps boost FTSE 100, Fenner surges on Michelin takeover

    Britain's FTSE 100 index gained on Tuesday, with banks leading the way after data showed a small slowdown in inflation, while Fenner shares surged after a takeover offer from tyre maker Michelin. In the second approach for a UK mid-cap firm in as many days, Fenner (FENR.L) jumped 24 percent to the top of the FTSE 250 after France's Michelin (MICP.PA) made a 1.2 billion-pound ($1.7 billion) bid for the engineering company. "Our first take is that the deal looks good and offers a healthy premium especially in light of Fenner's very strong recent share price performance," said Stifel analysts.

    May calls on housebuilders to 'do their duty', ease shortage

    Prime Minister Theresa May called on homebuilders on Monday to "do their duty" and build new houses more quickly to meet demand, launching a draft policy on planning laws to try to ease Britain's housing shortage. May has made tackling the long-term housing shortage one of her top priorities as she looks to show voters that her government is capable of delivering domestic reforms at the same time as negotiating the country's exit from the European Union. May took aim at property developers, saying their bonus structures prioritise profit over the construction of affordable homes, and warned that failure to build on approved sites could affect future decisions to award new planning permission.

    Britain's FTSE little changed as Sky soars on Comcast bid

    Comcast's bid for pay-TV group Sky and strong results from housebuilder Persimmon helped keep Britain's FTSE 100 on an even keel on Tuesday, as investors digested the first public comments from new Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell. Market reaction over Powell's nod to "gradual" rate increases was muted. "Gradual" has been the operative word since the Fed began raising rates under Powell's predecessor, Janet Yellen, in late 2015.

    Persimmon sees profit rise by a quarter after building more homes

    Persimmon (Frankfurt: 882058 - news) , Britain's second-largest builder, saw its annual profit rise by a quarter as it built more homes and lifted selling prices, sending its shares surging more than 10 percent. Its results, announced on Tuesday, boosted shares of other British housebuilders, including market leader Barratt and Taylor Wimpey (LSE: TW.L - news) , and helped take the focus off a management bonus plan that Persimmon scaled back after criticism from some shareholders. Persimmon, which built 6 percent more homes across Britain last year, said its underlying pre-tax profit rose 25 percent to 977 million pounds ($1.4 billion), marginally beating market expectations.
