Manifest in the press: Guardian, FT

The Financial Times

The Shell No vote was the second biggest against a UK company’s remuneration report this year, topped only by the 80 per cent of votes cast against Royal Bank of Scotland, according to Manifest, the voting agency.

The Guardian

The vote against the Shell pay report was the second biggest rebellion seen at a FTSE 100 company. Only at Royal Bank of Scotland, where the government used its 70% stake as a protest vote against former chief executive Sir Fred Goodwin’s £17m pension pot, has dissent been greater at a leading company.

Ten of the 16 biggest revolts at blue chip companies have come this year.
