Boohoo – industrial scale management greed or a spoof? Either one is ( again) the unacceptable face of capitalism

By Tom Winnifrith | Thursday 16 February 2023

Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

There is no evidence at all that management incentive plans actually incentivise management to work even harder or take even better decisions that reward shareholders. They are just a free one way bet for the fat cats. If you want a case study look at the 2019 and 2020 plans for Boohoo (BOO) bosses. Had the shares roofed it they would have coined it in without risking a penny. As it happens, despite all that “incentivisation” the shares, 408p back in 2020, have slumped to 49p today. So management need even more incentivisation right?
