      In South Korea, the Billionaire Divorce No Shareholder Can Resist

      (BLOOMBERG) - In what's billed by local media as the " divorce of the century ", the chairman of South Korea's third-largest conglomerate could wind up surrendering up to US$1.2 billion (S$1.6 billion) of his shares to his aggrieved wife. Chey Tae-won has good reason to worry that judges won't look kindly upon him: He's already started a second family with a glamorous American-Korean internet sensation, not to mention his wife is the daughter of former President Roh Tae-woo...

      It’s Time for Company Directors to Step up on Sustainability

      We are living in unprecedented times: geopolitical tensions are increasingly acute; the global political, economic and financial system that has worked for more than a century is being tested. Corporates worldwide are now expected to stay on the front foot, working closely with policymakers and regulators to confront far-reaching global challenges...

    3. As Tesla Shares Soar, Musk’s Moonshot Pay Package Doesn’t Seem so Crazy Anymore

      As Tesla Shares Soar, Musk’s Moonshot Pay Package Doesn’t Seem so Crazy Anymore

      Tesla Inc. shares have been on a tear since October, when the electric-vehicle maker posted a surprise third-quarter profit and said its Model Y will launch months ahead of schedule. After surging to another record close Tuesday, the stock climbed as much as 6% on Wednesday, boosting the company’s market value to more than $88 billion — more than Ford Motor Co. and General Motors Co. combined...

    4. The ‘Prevailing Challenge’ That’s Keeping the C-suite From Being Diverse

      The ‘Prevailing Challenge’ That’s Keeping the C-suite From Being Diverse

      If anyone questions whether corporate America lacks diversity, the fact that there only four black CEOs in the Fortune 500 — Merck’s Kenneth Frazier, TIAA’s Roger Ferguson, Tapestry’s Jide J. Zeitlin, and Marvin Ellison of Lowes — should serve as proof of that fact. The Executive Leadership Council is a non-profit organization aiming to diversify America’s workforce by helping blacks become C-suite level executives...

    5. Editorial: California Law Forcing Companies to Put Women on Corporate Boards is Coercion. But it’s Working

      Editorial: California Law Forcing Companies to Put Women on Corporate Boards is Coercion. But it’s Working

      We were never fans of SB 826, the law that went into effect last week requiring publicly traded companies based in California to add women to their corporate boards or face heavy fines. Diversity on corporate boards and in C-suites is extremely important, but the idea of a government-set quota was troubling from the start — and legally questionable as well...

      MGM Resorts CEO: What Happens in Vegas No Longer Stays in Vegas

      Las Vegas has a reputation for excess and non-stop entertainment, but Las Vegas Strip-based companies are increasingly stepping up as responsible global citizens. This may be surprising to those who think of Las Vegas as “Sin City,” but we are pioneering corporate cultures that embrace a commitment to society that extends beyond simply serving customers and growing bottom lines...

    7. Boeing's Board Shouldn't Escape Blame in 737 Max Scandal

      Boeing's Board Shouldn't Escape Blame in 737 Max Scandal

      This may have been overlooked, but the Boeing board of directors did Wells Fargo a big favor in 2019; it provided Wells' directors with real competition in the race for the worst failure of leadership among major American corporate boards. The failure came, of course, from an epic disaster: two crashes of Boeing's 737 Max airliners, costing the lives of 346 passengers and crew members...

      Unlike Ghosn, Nissan Can’t Escape Its Problems

      The Houdini-esque escape by Carlos Ghosn from his court-monitored Tokyo residence may be shrouded in intrigue, but one thing has been left in plain sight: A turnaround at Nissan Motor Co. won’t happen any time soon. Whatever he has to say from his refuge in Lebanon will be largely inconsequential for the Japanese car company...

    9. Boards Must be Held Accountable for Sexual Harassment Scandals

      Boards Must be Held Accountable for Sexual Harassment Scandals

      When banks harm customers and preventable wildfires rage, corporate boards are remade and top executives are fired. Since 2016, when US regulators revealed that Wells Fargo had opened millions of unauthorised accounts, nine of 14 members of the bank’s board of directors have stepped down, and the chief executive has changed twice...

    10. What Does the ‘WeWork effect’ Mean for IPOs in 2020?

      What Does the ‘WeWork effect’ Mean for IPOs in 2020?

      The public crash and burn of WeWork’s initial public offering and poor early performances from high-priced startups that actually managed to go public in 2019 likely won't stop other “decacorns” from testing the IPO market in 2020, but it may change how they do it. Some of the biggest “decacorns” — startups valued at $10 billion or more on the private markets — made it to market in 2019 as expected , but there are still others that waited and watched an uneven performance by their peers...
