A financial report released Wednesday shows the company outperforming its market guidance, yet 52 percent of the shareholders voted against a more favorable payment plan.

That 52 percent of shareholders are said to be unhappy with a 35 percent increase in CEO Joel Leonoff’s incentive package, now totaling a cool £6.7 million.  Leonoff oversaw a €1.1 billion merger of the company with payment solution firm Skrill.

From SBC News:

UK business news sources report that a number of Paysafe investors were concerned regarding a ‘one-off’ £4.1 million payment Leonoff received in 2014 as part of a long-term incentive reward.
