The Wall Street Journal: Wynn Resorts’ executive compensation plan rejected by shareholders

Shareholders in Wynn Resorts Ltd. voted overwhelmingly against the company’s executive compensation plan, according to results released Tuesday, a rare public rebuke of the corporation’s leadership in the months since founder Steve Wynn resigned amid sexual-misconduct allegations.

Shareholders voted nearly 80% of shares against the company’s compensation plan at an annual shareholders’ meeting last week, in a nonbinding referendum known as a “say on pay” vote.

A Wynn Resorts spokesman indicated that the company was prepared to act on the result. The board is working to move the casino giant from “a founder [led] company to a more traditional global enterprise,” he said.
