- Cheniere Energy (NYSEMKT:LNG) argues a stockholder vote approving a share grant to CEO Charif Souki was properly tabulated and isn’t subject to a legal challenge, the company’s lawyers said in a court filing in response to LNG stockholders who have sued that the balloting violated Delaware law governing the handling of abstentions.
- The defense comes after LNG had said it would drop a bid to have investors approve the addition of 30M shares to its executive bonus pool; the move does not affect the $133M worth of shares granted to Souki last year as part of his $142M pay package.
- Investors contend that if LNG had counted abstentions as no votes, as required by Delaware law, the 2013 addition to the bonus pool would not have received shareholder approval; LNG says it followed NYSE rules that disregard abstentions.
